Civic Duty Done #Vote2020

My civic duty is done once again. Voting is a good practice. Democracy survives when people go to the polls. Voting is also fun.

There was a line going out the door at our polling precinct. It is good to see that. We should know results sometime tonight for various races around the country.

It’s easy. Do it early today and get it done.

#Chattanooga Mayoral Election Update

NO winner was declared tonight. There will be a runoff in April between the two leading candidates Tim Kelly and Kim White. There will be a winner decided then.

Only 25% of the eligible voters cast ballots today. Not a good number if you ask me.

Going To Vote Local For Mayor and City Council In #Chattanooga

The City of Chattanooga is holding local elections today for Mayor and city council representatives. Businessman Tim Kelly and civic organizer Kim White are the leading contenders for the mayoral race. I will let you know who wins tonight after the votes are tabulated. The winner will replace two-term Mayor Andy Berke.

Local Politics Is Local, Democracy In Action

We in America just finished a national political cycle by electing a new President in Joe Biden. However local politics has more impact on the lives of people than those who are in national capitals.

In Chattanooga, Tennessee we are having a mayoral election coming up in March. These are mailers from two of the leading candidates who running for mayor. Tim Kelly is a businessman and Kim White is a community leader.

There are other candidates who are running but so far they haven’t sent anything. Doing mailings like this requires deep pockets. These candidates are also running TV commercials too. Unlike the national races you aren’t seeing any mud being slung which is refreshing.

So local politics is local and voting is as important if not more so. Voting is always important no matter what because democracy is a verb in as much as it is a noun.
