Ron Littlefield served our city as mayor for two terms. One would think that would be enough and he would fade into the background. Not Ron Littlefield. He has always had a big heart and a passion for those who cannot care for themselves.
Now he wants a $2,000,000 of the Hotel Motel Tax to operate a homeless shelter. What a great way to use this money.
I believe close to 90 percent of homelessness comes as a result of some varying degrees of mental challenges. Chattanooga has turned her back on these people for far too long, depending on churches and other organizations to fill this need. It’s way past time for the city of Chattanooga and Hamilton County to step up to the plate and take care of this growing need. We will all be well served if this happens.
I vote Republican and Ron is a Democrat. Here is a perfect example of how we can work together to make our city and county better. Thank you, Ron Littlefield, for not fading off into the background. Thank you for your heart. It’s why I have always been in your corner.
