Voting For Patrick Hampton For School Board

Thursday, August 07, 2014

Having been born, raised, and educated in District 5, I have taken a personal interest over the years in the political process of our local government, particularly, that of the 5th District. I have recently paid close attention to all the candidates vying for School Board representative of the 5th District. 

There has been one candidate and one campaign that has impressed me beyond the rest. I have listened to the ideas and plans of all the candidates, and on Aug. 2, I cast a vote for the candidate that I felt has the experience, and bipartisan support to execute the best ideas and plans necessary to take District 5 educational representation to the next level.  

This candidate exemplifies the leadership, and experience that will not only set a new standard in District 5, but has the potential to pull together some great resources with the bipartisan support that has already begun to form during his campaign. Patrick Hampton has run an impeccable campaign, despite the hardships of campaigning, remaining focused on the students, parents, community and prayer.  

Yes, there are many candidates, however, Patrick Hampton has been advocating and mentoring in District 5 in excess of 10 years, with overwhelming results. Besides being a dedicated husband and father, he is also dedicated and passionate about the direction of the educational system here in the 5th District. He also has the support of many of the teachers and administrators, in the 5th District, as I have read many testimonials across social media.  

Our youth and children deserve an advocate that is experienced and ready to work, day 1. As a voter, you deserve the best opportunity, to charter the best path for the next generations.

Please join me and cast a vote for Patrick Hampton, on Aug. 7. 

Christopher J King
Resident 5th District

Policeman: Modern Day "Boogie Man"

As a child I was under the impression that a ghastly, grotesque creature had taken up residence in my bedroom closet, the proverbial “Boogie Man” I suppose.  This is not an uncommon thing among children and most likely to some fault of my own as I subjected myself to some pretty iconic 1980’s horror flicks. There were other kids in the neighborhood that not only claimed to ... (click for more)

Alcoa Run Game Has Notre Dame's Attention In 3A Semis

Game time is 7 p.m. “We know their running game is very powerful,” Murphy said. “They like to pound the ball and run it down your throat.” That’s exactly what the top-ranked ... (click for more)

UTC Men Defeat Coastal Carolina,78-67

UTC’s Ronrico White is use to pre-game shoot arounds, but Wednesday’s “almost midnight madness practice” 14 hours prior to tipoff against Coastal Carolina was out of the ordinary but highly effective. “My shooting touch was off (2 for 14 in the last three games) so Coach Wes Long called a shoot around for late last night and we made some adjustments in my technique and it paid ...
