Chuck Fleischmann Is The Man We Need In Congress - And Response (2)

Thursday, May 17, 2018

Congressman Fleischmann has represented our district and our values well. When he votes, he votes his district and he votes my values. Here in the 3rd district, we are fortunate enough to have a congressman who is energetic and who looks for solutions to issues in our area, before we ourselves know an issue is present. 

Over the congressman’s time in office, he has continued to progress our area, while bringing home more money to help our everyday. I am not the only person who can see this, election results year after year are a testament to the work of a congressman who cares about his constituents. 

What I enjoy most about Chuck Fleischmann is that he is not a career politician. Before being elected to congress by the people, he was an accomplished businessman and community leader in the Hamilton County and greater area.  

While in congress, Rep. Fleischmann has been awarded the “Friend of the Waterways” Award for his leadership on the Chickamauga Lock.  

I am proud of Chuck Fleischmann and I look forward to voting for him again. Any man who supports our military and our current president while pushing to keep DC out of my way and more money in my pocket is the man I support. Here in Hamilton County, that man is Chuck Fleischmann.

Chuck isn't the man we need in Congress.  He's just the one with the R next to his name that has been shuffled through. He didn't earn the title of "Do Nothing Chuck" by doing our work. He snuck in and the position is his until he decides otherwise. That's how it works. 

Did you really feel the need to write a pro-Fleishmann opinion letter when at least the last eight elections have gone Republican by a margin of 2:1 votes? 

Politicians are like underwear: they need to be changed often and for the same reasons. Vote out incumbents.

I am a veteran of the U.S. Navy and U.S. Army National Guard, and rely solely on the V.A. for my medical care. I have a set of service connected injuries that allow me to have V.A. as my medical provider. 

In 2014, I severely injured my left shoulder, left bicep, and right elbow. I attempted to get care from the V.A., and after waiting month for treatment, I turned to Chuck for help. Not only was he and his staff quick to assist, but his V.A. liaison (Jules Doux) not only got the attention of the V.A., but the V.A. was all about getting me set for surgery with a local and outstanding surgeon. 

Chuck was instrumental in my ability to get the repairative surgeries I needed. Were it not for his efforts, I may have had to wait and suffer for many more months. Since then, I have had to seek his assistance on at least one other occasion in regard to V.A. issues, and he was once again quick to address my concerns and obtained a quick resolution with the V.A. 

Chuck has stated he supports veterans.......he not only talks the talk...he walks the walk. Thank you Chuck, and thank you, Jules!

What Happened To Recycle Pickup On Robinson Drive?

The city did not pick up the recyclables on Friday the 7th on our street (Robinson Drive). They have missed the whole street four of the past five scheduled pick up days.
