I am writing to show my strong support for Vince Dean as our next Criminal Court clerk.  

I first meet Vince when he worked with me in 2006. I can tell you first hand that Vince is extremely hardworking and always presents himself in a professional manner. Also, he is one of the most dependable co workers I have ever had.  

We also have mutual friends and we all agree that Vince is the best candidate for this position. I believe that you see a person's true nature when you work with them everyday.I am here to tell you that Hamilton County's tax dollars will be well served with Vince Dean in office.  

Let's get out and vote for Vince Dean for Criminal Court clerk.

I first met Vince Dean in 2004 when I went to work for the Chattanooga Police Department. My first impression of Vince was this is a man I can trust. I was right. We soon became friends and when I needed guidance as to the inner workings of the department I knew I could depend on then Sgt. Dean to give me the "straight scoop." I found him to be honest, dependable and trustworthy. 

Throughout the years Vince has never waivered from those qualities. As mayor of East Ridge he governed by those traits. He was always fair and balanced, listening to those he was entrusted to lead. With Vince you can be sure that his first step in decision-making will be to hit his knees in prayer. 

When he was elected to the State House Vince went into office with a promise to pursue issues and find solutions to the problems that affected his constituents. He did that without fail, making our great state better in the process. He remains approachable and when conversing with him you know you have his undivided attention. He is well-respected by his fellow legislators and his constituents. 

We can expect these same results from Vince as our Criminal Court clerk. He is forward thinking and will always have the citizens of Hamilton County in his best interests. I am proud to offer my highest endorsement for my friend, Vince Dean.
