Hazlewood Has Earned My Vote - And Response (2)

Monday, August 4, 2014

In the upcoming election for District 27's state representative race, I will be voting for Patsy Hazlewood.  I have run into Patsy at a few of the Soddy Daisy fire hall breakfasts. I  have been very impressed with how hard she works, her vision for district 27, and her plan for jobs and education. I also like how her campaign message is about solving real problems in Tennessee, and not about throwing negativity at her opponent.  

This is the type of leader we need in Nashville. Someone who is more interested with fixing what needs to be fixed.  

Please join me and vote for Patsy Hazlewood for State Representative on Aug. 7.

At our recent meeting of the Chattanooga Civitan Club, I was quite interested in a presentation by Patsy Hazlewood, candidate for Tennessee state representative District 27.  As a result, I truly feel that Patsy will be a superior advocate for Hamilton County at the state level.  

Her experience, integrity and work ethic is well-known and I find her focused on the most important issues: education and jobs.  

I encourage all those who reside in District 27 to elect her as our representative.

My vote is for Patsy Hazlewood for state representative in the 27th District.  She is a proven leader in our community.  Her extensive background will help us create jobs and improve education in Tennessee.   

Patsy has been committed to our community.   In 2009, she was the first woman to be elected president of the Chattanooga Rotary Club in its 96-year history.   

Patsy has committed herself to represent the community with integrity, good sense and efficiency.  She will be a steward your trust and your voice, faithfully advocating legislation that will build our economy, our education system and our community.   

Vote for Patsy Hazlewood.

Justification For A Utility Rate Hike

In justification of a proposed utility rate hike the CEO of Cleveland Utilities cited a March issue of a regional magazine that declares Cleveland Utilities rates are 18.7 percent below the national average. This is not a new tactic but a worn out one that gets played over and over again and not only with a utility hike but with property taxes.  According to data from 2008-2012 ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: The 15-Year-Old Marine

There are 58,267 names on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall that today sits majestically in the Constitution Gardens of our nation's capital. It has never been lost on me that 33,103 of those who are named were only 18 years old when they died. But what caught my eye during my morning reading is that one of the names carved in the black granite “Dan Bullock“ was only 15 years old ... (click for more)
