I would like to take this opportunity to endorse Wayne Thompson for Court Clerk of East Ridge.
I have known Wayne for nearly 40 years. Wayne grew up right here in East Ridge. He dedicated his entire adult life to serving the citizens of East Ridge and just doesn’t feel like he is done yet. He is still a young man and has lots of life ahead of him. Wayne understands the importance and seriousness of the Court Clerk’s role. I believe that this office should be taken seriously and not reduced to a cartoon character.
Wayne will not play favorites while in office. He will treat law enforcement, defendants, media, attorneys and prosecutors all with the same respect. He will not attempt to build relationships with one group over the other. He realizes that this office must be fair and impartial, maintaining the records and collecting fees and fines.
This year let’s elect someone we know. Let’s vote for someone that has proven their dedication to East Ridge. Let’s elect someone that everyone can count on. Let’s vote for Wayne Thompson.
