“The most worth-while thing is to try to put happiness into the lives of others.” Sir Robert Baden Powell
Over the last several years County Commissioner Joe Graham has impressed me more and more. I have written about his generosity and his love of family, community and country. However, Joe has shown in countless ways what an outstanding county commissioner should be. He has devoted his time to every community he serves, and he also is there willing to give advice to members of those communities that need help.
Furthermore, over the years Commissioner Graham has found ways to help those communities found within District Six. He has the people of Northshore community finding funds for things such as Normal Park to complete their football field, pave their parking lot, stage equipment and even a new elevator for the school.
At Chattanooga School for the Creative Arts, he has helped with funds of over five million dollars for a new cooling system.
Lookout Mountain residents have seen new computers and technology for their school and repairs and upgrades to their recreation center.
In the Red Bank community, Joe has help allocate funds for a new pavilion and paving around the ball fields.
For the residents of the Lookout Valley community, he has helped allocate funds for many repairs and upgrades to John A. Patten Rec Center, such as new air conditioning, new windows, numerous items for the Lookout Valley Recreation Center and a new community announcement sign. Joe has even assisted the Lookout Valley community schools with field house repairs, new lockers, repairs to the football field stadium and a playground for the elementary school.
However, this is just the tip of the iceberg in the future the people of Lookout Valley will see, with new tennis courts and a much-needed elementary school gym.
Joe Graham believes in helping his district and the children of his district. Joe Graham has shown his love for the people of District Six and, with your vote, I know he will continue to serve the people of District Six with honor and distinction.
