Charles White Is Real And Has Actual Experience

Tuesday, June 17, 2014

I have read several endorsement letters and it seems that most candidates' names could be transposed to any of these letters and fit right in. Most residents in the 27th District also fit these descriptions and are family oriented, hard working and possess many great qualities but those are not all that is needed to work at the Capital in Nashville. 

Charlie is of same cut as every other Republican and candidate in Hamilton County; family man, strong Christian faith, served in the military, some public service, successful small business owner, honest, loyal, tried and tested leadership.  The same attributes as the other candidates, very little difference there.  

Charlie stands out with the ability to bring groups of people together,  putting their ideas and opinions into words that can be used to produce bills that are presented to our state legislature, work those bills among his friends and contacts in Nashville, receiving help and advice from many respected elected officials and successfully turning those opinions from taxpayers into laws and improvements. 

He has been involved in this process successfully, for over 10 years from the outside and has worked a multitude of projects with his personal attention and help from numerous contacts. If elected he will not have to waste his first few years building relationships, he is ready to work for you with your ideas now, from the inside. Other candidates may acquire some of these abilities, given time and if they are respected in the legislature but I don’t think we can wait for promised leadership any longer than we have to.

Senator David Perdue: I Have Heard Every Excuse Under The Sun

Here we go again. For the 19th consecutive year, Washington has not funded the federal government on time. As the current continuing resolution is expiring in the midnight hour, Congress is once again trying to pass a temporary fix three months after the beginning of the current fiscal year. This is ridiculous. In fact, Congress has only completed the full budget process four ... (click for more)

Silence From Rhonda Thurman

I find it deplorable that Rhonda Thurman is, once again, voicing her opinions so quickly and so vehemently.  She seems to be the one school board member that wants media and/or press coverage every time the opportunity avails itself.  However, when it comes to responding to personal emails sent directly to her…she zips her lips. I, as all of the citizens of Hamilton ... (click for more)

CSAS Gets Defensive In Win Over Boyd-Buchanan

High school basketball is still in the early stages of the 2016-17 season, but CSAS coach Mark Dragoo is already seeing improvement from his team and they’ve only played four games. The Patriots are always a good team with lots of quick, athletic players who can shoot well and play sticky defense. That was the case on Friday night at Boyd-Buchanan as the Patriots shot well ...

Bradley Girls Stave Off Stone Memorial's Upset Bid, 48-46

The Bradley Central Bearettes’ ninth straight win to open the high school basketball season was their toughest to date.
