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.

Sharia's Threat To Constitutional Law

This past month, G.O.P. hopeful Dr. Ben Carson went from upstart political novice to a red-hot topic of political debate with his outspoken pronouncement of never endorsing a Muslim for President.  He later (I believe) clarified his position when he stated more clearly that he took a firm stance of no Muslim should become President of the United States because of his (the doctor’s) ...
