Tim Kelly For Mayor - And Response

Tuesday, February 23, 2021

I have known Tim Kelly for over 40 years. He is a highly intelligent and caring person who is rooted here and has deep interests in all things related to the past, present and future of Chattanooga.

He is most interested in improving the educational and business/economic opportunity for all of Chattanooga and is qualified beyond measure to do exactly that. 

We should be heartened and thankful that someone of his caliber is willing and anxious to serve Chattanooga in public office.

You gasp and say, no, he’s doing his best on the behalf of over 20,000 unaccompanied children who are the victims of poverty, desperation, ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: The Saturday Funnies

One of my favorite people told me he just enrolled in a yoga class. This guy is 70-plus in years and he’s gonna’ put his no-no-Speedo body into the sleek world of spandex and lycra.
