Although I have never met David Norton, I have gained a lot of respect for him over the past few months. He has run a classy, low-key campaign, and I like that.
After the tragic and sudden death of Judge Bob Moon, Hamilton County Commissioners voted 7-1 to appoint David Norton as his successor. The Commission knew that Judge Norton could step in the job quickly without need of a "learning curve," due to his decades of experience as Soddy Daisy judge and an assistant county attorney.
All indications are that David Norton is doing a fine job serving in the position to which he was appointed in March. He has the overwhelming support of his colleagues, as evidenced by the opinion of the Chattanooga Bar Association. He also has judicial experience that far surpasses that of any fellow candidate.
I hope voters will reward Judge Norton’s reserved, credential-driven approach in August. Beyond the campaign games, with all the flashy signs, Facebook fan collecting, and hand-shaking meets and greets, it is Judge Norton's experience, temperament, and selfless commitment to the community that counts. In those respects, no other candidate comes even close.
