I am writing to ask for your vote for Joe DeGaetano for Sessions Court judge on Aug. 2. Joe has been a friend of our family for over 25 years. During that time I have found him to be a kind, hard working, and caring person of great integrity, loyalty, and professionalism.
I feel that we as citizens of Hamilton County would do well to have such a person serving us in our judicial system.
I will be casting my vote for Joe on Aug. 2 and ask that you consider doing so as well!

I am writing to recommend Joe DeGaetano as a candidate to replace Judge Moon in the General Sessions Judge race.
I first met Joe eleven years ago after Joe joined our law firm in Nashville. Joe and I are both from Hamilton County. Joe became recognized as one of the brightest legal minds in the firm. Joe established himself as a hardworking, polite and compassionate lawyer. Joe’s legal work was always top notch. Joe got along well with clients and everyone he met. Joe was always respected and turned into a very highly regarded trial lawyer.
During the years that I have known Joe, I have never known Joe to raise his voice, express anger or disrespect another person. These are excellent traits for a judge.
Eventually Joe decided to return to Chattanooga. Joe and his wife, Heather, moved to Chattanooga. Joe has built an excellent reputation in Chattanooga as an excellent lawyer, a very good father, husband and member of the community.
There are well qualified candidates in the race to replace Judge Moon. I recommend that your consider Joe DeGaetano.
