Tomisek Is The Only Real Choice For District 4

Wednesday, February 06, 2013

Tom Tomisek is the only choice for the City Council District 4 (East Brainerd) seat. I have heard from, spoken to and read about other candidates via various media websites and I have to say, none of them are as qualified as Tom.

 

He has been a Chattanooga resident for over 50 years and seen many changes to the city. As a local businessman, Tom has a vast history of service to this city and to our county.

He graduated from Hixson High School followed by the University of Tennessee with a degree in Industrial management. He also earned the rank of Eagle Scout just prior to joining the Army and was the director of the Chattanooga Jaycees in 1980. He is father to four children, one having tragically died in 2003. In 1978, Tom created TNT Auto Parts from the ground up. He grew the business for nearly 20 years before starting a new adventure in laundromats.

 

His agenda concentrates on three main areas: Public safety, attracting small businesses, and public services such as education, transportation, and health initiatives. In order to attract the small businesses that would help in funding the public services, he would implement ways to make the city a safer place to live and visit. Some of his strategies include working toward fully funding the police and fire department, and keeping an open line of communication with the residents of his district as well as the chief of police.

 

While I believe the other candidates have the city’s best interest in mind, they do not come close to having the experience and expertise as Tom. If you were going in for a surgical operation would you want a resident performing the surgery or a tenured surgeon? Metaphorically speaking, Tom is the tenured surgeon. Please go to the polls and vote Tom Tomisek for District 4.
