Judge Reingold Has Experience, Character And Integrity

Tuesday, August 5, 2014

What are the qualities that an individual should have to make him or her fit to be a judge? Some believe that credentials such as experience and legal ability are vital. Others might think that intangibles like character and integrity are most important. As a citizen of East Ridge and as a member of the bar, I submit that Judge Reingold possesses all of the above. 

Judge Reingold has resided in East Ridge for 45 years. He served honorably in the armed forces during the Korean conflict and was elected to the State House. He has practiced law for more than 50 years and has been bestowed the highest attainable ratings for legal ability from his fellow attorneys and judges. A resolution was passed by our State legislature, which included locals Gerald Mcormick and Vince Dean, “Honoring and commending Arvin Reingold of Chattanooga for meritorious service to the citizens of Tennessee.”  

Judge Reingold has presided over the East Ridge Municipal Court for 12 years, only the second judge in the court’s relatively brief history.

As a practicing lawyer, I appear regularly before numerous judges in the states of Tennessee and Georgia and consider Judge Reingold’s intangibles to be at the top of the curve. He applies the law fairly, he exhibits patience, and always affords individuals the opportunity to present their case. He takes his oath to uphold the Constitution to heart. 

Judge Reingold has all of the qualities that would make him fit to serve as judge in any court, at any level. We have the opportunity to re-elect him to our court for another term.

Replace The VFW Flag

I agree with my dear friend, David Carroll.  If it’s a money thing, I will join in with Dave and buy a new flag for the VFW. I am puzzled as to why this tattered flag is flying at a VFW post of all places.  My dad was at Pearl Harbor when the signing to end the war took place on the Missouri.  My mom was also there and worked as a secretary to Admiral Nimitz.  My ...
