Rob Hensley Will Represent Signal Mountain With A Fair And Open Mind

Monday, November 5, 2018

As Americans, we have at least two things in common:  the privilege to voice our opinions and the right to vote.  On Election Day, you will have the opportunity to be part of determining the future leadership of our community, state and nation.  For Signal Mountain residents, I humbly ask that you cast your vote for Rob Hensley for Town Council.  

Rob is passionately dedicated to God, his family, Signal Mountain and his country.  After growing up in Red Bank and graduating from Red Bank High School where he played football, he attended the Air Force Academy, served our country as an Air Force intelligence officer and chose to return to our community with his wife Arlina, to work and raise their four children.  

Since they moved here 18 years ago, Arlina and Rob have volunteered in a variety of school and community causes and events on Signal Mountain.  I served with Rob on the Sports Boosters Committee and the Founders Fund where I witnessed his systematic approach to making solid decisions on important issues.  He is organized, does his research and makes unbiased decisions after considering all of the facts.

Rob was a star player on the Red Bank football team and frequently was responsible for the game winning play.  His approach to life has mirrored his work ethic and determination on the football field.  As you go to the polls to vote on Tuesday, please fill in the circle for Rob Hensley.  He will listen to all of the residents of Signal Mountain and represent you with a fair and open mind.  No doubt, we will be proud to have him on our team.

Roy Exum: Swimming With Jim Morgan

I’ve never talked much about this – it is too close to bragging – but in my teenaged years I was a good swimmer. I loved being in the water and maybe the greatest compliment back in the day was when new UT swimming coach Ray Bussard offered me a ‘full ride’ with the Vols. Are you kidding me … by then I was into tobacco, alcohol, convertibles, and girls in angora sweaters - there ... (click for more)

Senator Alexander: A Reasonable Proposal To End The Government Shutdown
