Re-Elect Joe Smith

Monday, July 16, 2018
Joe Smith has demonstrated over the course of time that he is laser focused on the well being of the kids of Hamilton County. He has spent countless hours in his role at YPAC helping his kids build lifelong positive life skills, setting a positive role model, mentoring and going as far and adopting 19 children of various ethnic backgrounds and bringing them into his home, keeping them from conditions not conducive to positive growth and development. He is the prototypical model of service before self.
 

Since being appointed to the District 3 board of education, he has worked tirelessly to focus on the kids and how the school can bring about better results in their lives and in educating children of all backgrounds, not just a few. He has taken this role as a challenge and is results oriented in this new endeavor. He studies, he observes, he listens in order to become the very best board member. And finally, he challenges not only the voters of Hixson County District 3, but all of Hamilton County to get involved; put your money where you mouth is; mentor, love and show these kids you care as a community. He is not one that operates as some do.... do as I say, not as I do...…. 

This is why I am totally committed to helping Joe retain this position on the school board. If you live in District 3,I strongly urge you to cast you vote for Joe Smith.
