District 8 Needs Moses Freeman - And Response

Tuesday, February 5, 2013

I moved downtown 10 years ago, as part of the live where you work program, which was started to revitalize the MLK area. Moses Freeman was instrumental in the planning, support, and implementation of bringing our neighborhood back to vibrancy.  

He is a past president of our neighbor association and an integral part of our neighborhood and district. Moses is a fair and open-minded person who will work to keep District 8 moving forward.  

We need someone on the Chattanooga City Council who will listen to the people in District 8 and respect the stances taken by the neighborhood associations. We do not need a combative representative who tells different people different things, according to what he thinks they want to hear, and does not follow through on empty promises. Moses Freeman knows how to listen to different sides of an issue and weigh the balance to reflect what is best for District 8.  

I am voting early next Wednesday, Feb. 13, for Moses Freeman. I encourage everyone in District 8 to come out and vote for Moses Freeman, a man is who sensitive, responsive, and proven.

What we actually saw was bickering, verbal attacks, and a collapse of democratic discourse. It is typically not my approach to "attack" individuals, but as each commissioner made public statements, ... (click for more)

Enforce The Bond Forfeiture In Padgett Case

Now that Christopher Padgett  was taken into custody by the Chattanooga Police Department and checked back into the Hamilton County jail, I trust the judge will do no favors and enforce the forfeiture of Padgett's entire $350,000 bond. Padgett was accused of murder, he was granted $350,000 bond and he ran. Padgett was found guilty. A convicted murderer was ... (click for more)

In the midst of what is an exciting college football season, I thought we might talk some college hoops as the Chattanooga Mocs are gearing up for what could be an amazing 2016-2017 season. Coach Matt McCall returns practically every starter from last year's squad that won the SoCon regular season and tournament titles as well as a school record 29 wins. The Mocs scored wins at ...
