My fellow Chattanooga voters,
Let’s talk about our mayoral run-off race on April 4. First of all, Tim Kelly is an ultra-liberal, who, freely admitted voting for Joe Biden. He showed his lack of respect for the dead with his recent comments ridiculing one of my heroes, Rush Limbaugh.
Do you really want another Joe Biden as our mayor? He will be bringing in and supporting all immigrants, with no care of their illegal status, across our southern border, as well as all who come from known Muslim countries such as Iran, and other Communist countries such as North Korea and China. He will welcome them with open arms to Joe Biden’s America. Do you really want possible enemies living next door to you, influencing your children and taking entry-level jobs away from fellow Americans? If the answer is no, then you must go to the polls and vote for Kim White.
Kim is a Christian conservative and true American. She has headed up large organizations and certainly has the ability to be our next mayor. Vote for Kim White.

To quote the maître d’ in the extraordinary movie Ferris Bueller‘s Day Off, “I weep for the future."
Specifically, here, I weep for the future of city elections. The future for our city remains bright!
I am a Chattanooga resident, lifelong. I am and have been a business person involved in manufacturing, steel fabrication and law practice in our city for more than 33 years.
During that time, I have always welcomed elections for city mayor with a sense of comfort and relief, inasmuch as the races have been deliberately non-partisan and thus, in my estimation, focused on what is best for our beloved city, as opposed to any political agenda, be it left-leaning or right-leaning. Rather, a race among candidates who wish to lead our city forward for the betterment of the whole and holistic community. Given current conditions of COVID, economic disparity and divisiveness, the need has never been greater.
I do not take a position on who the next mayor needs to be. It seems that others have already commenced a race to the bottom in connection with that effort.
But I do want to express my extreme, sadness and disappointment that the process had devolved into bitter, vitriolic and partisan dialogue.
I will now wait, sadly recognizing the loss of the last bastion of non-partisan stewardship; and I will vote my conscience on election day.
