Oscar Brock Will Work Hard For Our Children

Friday, July 18, 2014

I have known Oscar Brock for 28 years; have worked with him and followed his career.  I’m endorsing Oscar for Hamilton County School Board, District 6 for several reasons:

Oscar is a great guy with solid values and a wonderful family; he is a successful business man; he has always been involved in community philanthropic causes where he works to make Chattanooga/Hamilton County a better place to live and his passion for the future of children and education has been a long standing concern.

Oscar Brock directed me toward becoming more involved in community affairs.  Over the years I have volunteered and served on boards working with literacy, Junior Achievement, and youth sports programs because of his guidance.  Oscar is the type of person who can connect with and encourage people to build a better education system for our children.  He has the, passion, the knowledge and the willingness to serve on the School Board for Hamilton County, District 6.

I encourage you to support our children’s educational future by voting for Oscar Brock.  He will work hard for our children, their education and our community.
