I first met Randy Johnston on the youth softball fields 25 plus years ago. We later met up in the stands at high school football games watching our children play football and cheer for Central High School.
I have always known Randy to be passionate about family and community. Randy Johnston has served his community as an employee of Hamilton County for 33 years in the Assessors Office. He has also been a business owner for over 20 years and treats his customers as if they were family.
My family and I feel that Randy is the most qualified for the position as Hamilton County Register of Deeds and we ask that you vote for our friend, Randy Johnston, on May 1.

True leadership is servanthood. When you vote for Randy Johnston for Register of Deeds, you are casting your vote for leadership and not politics. Randy Johnston has been a loyal public servant for Hamilton County for 33 years. He is passionate about his service to the people of Hamilton County. His 33 years of experience has given him the opportunity to establish positive working relationships with the people of Hamilton County.
On a more personal note, Randy’s love and loyalties extend outside his work place. For over 20 years he has been instrumental in making sure children in our community that would not have had a Christmas, receive a wonderful Christmas. He has provided my classroom with educational materials that my students needed so they wouldn’t have to do without. He provides weekly snacks for my students. His generosity ensures that my students are always rewarded. Randy was also involved with the “River Rescue Project” and the “Help Beautify Chattanooga Community Project”.
Randy Johnston is an involved citizen of Hamilton County. His roots are here and will stay here. There’s a Chinese proverb that states: “The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now”. Help me plant that second tree and name it, Randy Johnston, Register of Deeds. Vote Randy Johnston.

I must begin by admitting that I don't know Marc Gravitt, and he's probably a pleasant man. However, I do know Randy Johnston and his dedication to the Hamilton County Assessor's office, to his family and friends and to any responsibility he's been handed.
Once you meet Randy, you don't forget him. On a second meeting, he greets you with a husky handshake, a bear hug or both. And always with a huge smile.
But that's not the reason to vote for Randy Johnston for Register of Deeds on May 1. Have we come to a place in history where experience doesn't count any longer? Is it acceptable for someone who's spent much of his time in Nashville the past several years to begin a new profession on the top step of the ladder?
While Mr. Gravitt has served as a state representative in Nashville, Randy has worked for the Assessor's office for 33 years and currently holds the position as the Director of Residential Property. He's paid his dues by climbing the ladder one step at a time.
Now there's another step to climb. It's time to make experience and knowledge actually stand for something once again.
It's time to vote Randy Johnston for Register of Deeds.
