Steve Smith has my vote for Public Defender in Hamilton County. The choice is an easy one in the upcoming election.
Steve Smith is an excellent attorney who maintains impeccable ethics. He has the requisite experience to fulfill the requirements needed to lead the Public Defenders Office; he has experience in owning and operating a law office and managing an office staff. Steve Smith also has experience in the practice of criminal law. Most importantly, Steve Smith possesses the leadership skills requisite to lead a large office.
Steve Smith is an obvious choice for Public Defender in the upcoming election. The Public Defender's office needs a change in leadership. If you were to ask ten local attorneys who they plan to vote for in the upcoming Public Defender's race, there's a very good chance you will hear Steve Smith's name ten times. The reason for that consistency amongst people who practice law? The reason is twofold: 1) The Public Defender's office needs new leadership and 2) Steve Smith is the leader that can fill the position with the dignity that the office so desperately deserves.
Public Defender is an important position in each circuit in the State of Tennessee. It is a position that must be filled by a licensed attorney willing to take on the responsibility of an elected official. It requires a person that is willing to be fiscally responsible to our state and it's constituents. It also requires a person that is willing to protect the Constitutional rights of the indigent people of Hamilton County. Steve Smith is the candidate that has promised to make each of these responsibilities a priority and he will deliver on these promises.
Being a practicing attorney in Hamilton County, I have witnessed Steve Smith as an attorney and a person. Steve Smith treats his job with diligence and dignity, and he treats all people with politeness and respect. Steve Smith will bring that same attitude and work ethic to the Public Defenders office. He is the only choice when it comes to casting my vote.
