Vote For Vince - And Response (2)

Friday, May 30, 2014

I strongly urge all my fellow Hamilton County residents to vote for Vince Dean as our next Criminal Court clerk. 

Vince has shown strong leadership as state representative, and I know he will bring his responsibility and wisdom to the Criminal Court Clerk's office.  

Vince has always had a passion for our community, and served 27 years with Chattanooga Police Department. We need people like Vince in our elected offices.  

Please remember to vote Vince Dean for Criminal Court clerk.

I have known Vince before he became a police officer.  I have watched him grow from a young teen to a great leader for the county, city of East Ridge, and the state of Tennessee, where he has served us well in all areas.  

Vince is someone you can talk to without feeling he is talking down to you.  He knows what it takes to be a leader, he has shown it in every position that he has held. 

Vince knows about budget making, the needs of the people that will or has used Criminal Court office, and he understand the police officers needs and concern. 

A vote for Vince is a vote for leadership for the people, something we have not always had from those in the court house.

I have personally known Vince Dean for over 10 years.  Hamilton County needs a leader like Vince Dean.  Vince has served in the 104th, 105th, 106th, 107th and 108th Tennessee House of Representatives General Assemblies.  Vince has served as chairman of the House of Transportation Committee and has proven to be an effective elected official in Nashville.  

Vince supports his constituents as he was instrumental in getting motorcycles added to the Lemon Law statutes.  

Hamilton County needs someone like Vince Dean for Criminal Courts office and I think he is just the man for the job. 

Vote Vince Dean for Criminal Court clerk.
