I need to take this opportunity to speak out on behalf of Vince Dean, who is running for Criminal Court clerk. Vince served as a councilmember and as the mayor of East Ridge, where I was employed for many years. During Vince's time on the Council, Vince stood out with his keen ability to manage the budget. He reorganized the structure of the departments by reducing the number of department heads and saved money in the process. He helped reduce the budget, in years that money was tight, without cutting services. He always looked out for the employees, yet was very smart with the tax dollars.
As mayor, he pulled the council together and led them as a mayor should. He taught the council to work together, even if they disagreed. They didn't fuss and fight about issues that came up. They worked toward solutions and were able to get along. I would have to say that Vince's biggest achievement was to get re-elected numerous times and with bigger margins every time. I urge you to vote for Vince Dean for Criminal Court clerk. He will work hard, just as he always has.
