I am writing to show my support for Oscar Brock in the current race for School Board District 6. I have known Oscar for more than 25 years. In fact, he was one of the first people I met when I moved to Chattanooga in 1989. I know him to have a true passion for giving back to the community and striving to make it a better place. American Red Cross, Chattanooga Rotary Club, and the Mental Health Association are just a few of the organizations he has given time to. As a young man he served as President of the Chattanooga Jaycees and I had the honor of serving as his legal counsel while he was in that position. I witnessed firsthand his outstanding leadership, communication skills, and decision making as I served with him on that board. He understands that a board must be able to manage its community resources, have open communication with the public, and be responsive to the public’s need.
I know Oscar will be instrumental in making our schools better. He believes teachers deserve better compensation and recognition and understands the importance of parental involvement. Vote to make our schools better by voting Oscar Brock for School Board District 6.
