Roger Tuder Gets Things Done

Friday, January 11, 2013

I am pleased that Roger Tuder is running for District 2 City Council.  I know about Roger’s passion for public service and his hard work on the local workforce board.  His eagerness to educate and train the workforce of tomorrow is evidence that he is a business leader who appreciates the importance of economic opportunities for all.    

On a more personal note, I would also like to add that Roger is a caring person who listens and then acts quickly to get results.  He recently met with residents throughout Fairfax Heights, my neighborhood, to get a deeper understanding for the concerns of District 2. I had the opportunity to discuss concerns about tree branches that were intermingled with electric wires – a recipe for disaster for the first freeze.   

Roger offered to contact the city of Chattanooga, and the next day, he had already facilitated communication and set plans in action.  The day after that, the trees were nicely pruned by the time I came home from work.  That is the type of quick response and coordination needed to get results; Roger would help our neighborhoods in District 2 to thrive.       

Please vote for proven leader, Roger Tuder, on election day.
