It's Going To Take Unity To Move Chattanooga Forward

Regardless of one's race or political perspectives, Chattanoogans are going to have to come together as One City and One People.
 
We cannot continue to divide along racial, nor partisan lines. We are One City and must pull together as one."

As to the partisan divide, no candidate should be running partisanly. It only serves to further divide us. 

That's the purity of the city election. It is nonpartisan,  not requiring party affiliation. This is a good thing, because it allows for unity and cohesive governance.
 
My pledge is:

To lead as a servant, with a heart for the people, but also as a strong, knowledgeable and capable leader.

To use my undergraduate Urban Planning-Government and Law degrees, as well as my teaching experience at UTC in Political Science, to lead with an understanding of how city government should be run.

To bring the city together in oneness.

To lead non partisanly, without the injection of divisive politics. 

To give access to the mayor's office - excluding no one.

To work with anyone who has the best interest of the city at heart - including those who did not cast their vote for me.

To do whatever is necessary to move Chattanooga forward, as a city that is successful in working together to address hard things and unresolved issues.
 
It has to be this way.
As mayor, there has to be this kind of steadfast commitment to making it happen."

Citizens Can Do Only So Much In The Constant Battle Against Litter

If we want to control the excessive litter problem around Hamilton County, I suggest we start with the commercial hauling companies. Just take a drive down Amnicola or Wisdom Street towards the transfer stations on any given day and it is absolutely mind numbing the amount of trash in the right of ways. Even when it is cleaned within 24 hours the rubbish is piling back up. Just ... (click for more)
