Signal Mountain Candidates Anderson And Gardner Will Listen To You

Monday, October 26, 2020

Join me in casting your votes for Signal Mountain Town Council candidates Andrew Gardner and Vicki Anderson. They are committed to working hard in bringing fiscal responsibility back in line, thinking creatively on how to avoid constant tax increases, and most importantly, listening to all citizen input. To not just be another yes man or yes woman with the rest of the council. To not just listen to a small group of residents that show up at Council meetings, but to actively seek out what residents of Signal Mountain need and want from their community.

Andrew will bring a voice for the many young families who make up a big part of our community. His financial expertise, the CFO of a multiple restaurant company, affords him the necessary skills needed to bring a hard outside look at all areas of our town government resources and expenses.

Vicki will bring her ability to effectively listen to all parties and find solutions or compromises that keep our mountain desirable and affordable. She thrives on thinking outside of the box and is big into grant writing, as a source of securing additional revenue.  

Andrew and Vicki want to hear from you and listen to your voice in making decisions that affect our community.

Andrew and Vicki want to critically look at ways to increase town revenue without increasing your taxes.

Andrew and Vicki want to keep Signal Mountain the most desirable place to live and raise a family.

What services do you deem essential that make up this amazing community we live in? Are you getting the most value for your taxpayer dollars? How do we navigate future growth? Andrew and Vicki will work to find the best solutions to these questions and your answers. They will fight for you.

Trump, Fascism And The Voter

We, the public viewers, voters and the die hard loyalists, have to wonder or they should wonder. I'll explain.
