Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter-Day Saints Urges Everyone To Take The Velocity 2014 Survey

Wednesday, October 10, 2018

Deseret Ward, a volunteer media specialist for the Chattanooga stake of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, recently met with Chattanooga Chamber of Commerce President Christy Gillenwater to discuss a new survey being put forward to help Chattanooga with strategic planning. The survey can be accessed at velocity2040.com.

“The more people who take the survey, the better vision we will have for the year 2040 for Chattanooga and Hamilton County,” Ms. Ward said.  “In my capacity as a media specialist, I am calling upon local members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, as well as members of other denominations and faiths, to take the survey.”  

The chamber is encouraging participation across the county.  “For more than 40 years,” the Chamber said, “people in Chattanooga and Hamilton County have joined together to imagine how we can work together to make our community better.  Community visioning played a critical role in revitalizing our downtown, establishing the Tennessee Riverwalk, bringing Volkswagen to Chattanooga as a major employer and making our hometown America’s first Gig City (with the world’s fastest internet).”  

The chamber is now inviting us to imagine “an even brighter and more inclusive future.”  The chamber has stated that it wants the survey to “reflect all the experiences, perspectives and ideas Chattanooga and Hamilton County offer.”  

“This is why the Chattanooga Chamber of Commerce is asking us to tell everyone we know how to share their input,” Ms. Smartt said.  “Learn more, and participate in the survey at https://velocity2040.com. The survey ensures that your voice is “part of our future.”

Roy Exum: We're Torturing Millions

I’ll admit it – I would rather hurt than take an opioid pain pill. Hydrocodone and its cousins scare the willies out of me because once when I was ‘drug sick,’ it was the worst sickness I have ever known. For somebody who always has somewhere that it hurts, I know that opioids are wonderful when used properly but because they are increasingly abused by society, there are now over ... (click for more)
