I recently met Roger Tuder as he and his campaign team walked through my neighborhood. I also heard Roger speak at a candidate forum for the Chattanooga City Council elections. Without question Roger Tuder is the best choice for District 2.
It is clear Roger knows the job of a City Council member. He talked about older neighborhoods like mine and the needs we face such as an aging infrastructure and crime. Roger knows the real challenges facing District 2.
In our neighborhood, we have had a problem of trees growing in our drainage passage way for some time. After months of unreturned phone calls and no response by Chattanooga Public Works, our problem is now resolved. Roger took it upon himself in the midst of a campaign to take time to take pictures and make phone calls to solve the problem. That’s not very glamorous is it? Roger put the needs of our neighborhood ahead of his campaign. This simple act has earned my vote.
Roger Tuder is his own man and does not owe his political career to anyone. Roger Tuder is clearly the best choice for City Council District 2.

I urge District 2 voters to vote for Roger Tuder for City Council. Roger understands the issues confronting Chattanooga -- economic development and quality of life issues, among others. He is a native Chattanoogan and has worked in banking and construction.
Currently, he heads the Associated General Contractors of East Tennessee. He understands planning, budgeting, operations, and personnel matters. He is a proven manager. Plus, he has solid experience, and he knows how "to get the most out of a dollar."
Finally, Roger listens. He will welcome your thoughts and ideas and will work hard to make Chattanooga a better place to live and to work. I have known him for 20 years and know him to be an honest, competent, and sincere person.

Roger Tuder is running for City Council in District 2 because he deeply cares for the future of all the people in our district. With a focus on increasing neighborhood safety, accountability in government and getting real value from hard-earned tax dollars, Tuder will serve us well. His “no nonsense,” down to earth personality and moral backing will prove to be the voice of reasoning for District 2.
As a new comer to politics, he brings decades of real world experience that are not only necessary for the job, but refreshing. I believe he will create value and serve the people.
I invite anyone to reach out to Roger in the weeks to come. He’ll easily prove that he is running because he wants to make our community a better place.
