I have voted a Democratic ticket all my life, but this year, I’m “crossing the line” and moving to the other side of the aisle.
I have had the pleasure of knowing Vince for 40 years and can attest that he is a man of integrity who understands our community. Reputation reflects your actions when people are watching, but character is evidenced by your actions when no one is watching. Vince Dean’s character is beyond reproach.
He is a family man who unashamedly serves the Lord, and his career resume speaks for itself. My late father who retired from the Chattanooga Police Department and then worked in the criminal court clerk’s office until his death, knew Vince both personally and professionally during Vince’s career in law enforcement, and always spoke of him very highly.
Following his career in law enforcement, Vince has distinguished himself as a state representative. He has a proven record of serving the people and possesses the organization, administration and management skills to guide the Criminal Court Clerk’s office to the next level.
Without reservation, I urge my fellow Democrats to look past party affiliation in this race and vote for the best candidate to fill the position of Criminal Court Clerk. Cast your vote for integrity, vote for Vince Dean.
