Yep.

Yesterday was voting day in Chattanooga for Mayor & Council. We FINALLY are getting rid of that no-good liberal democrat Ron Littlefield who did absolutely nothing good for the city. The council wasn't much better...voting tax increases, etc.

Well, three of the seven incumbents LOST - my district included (I voted for the winner - a conservative teaparty-type). A councilman who I've known all my life, went to school with his boy, and I actually like...LOST to the 1st openly homosexual candidate in Chatt history. WHY??? Good ole Manny actually said the council didn't have to listen to the citizens...I reckon they really do!

Two other council members are in run-offs also.

My personal favorite councilman to hate, Andre McGrary, LOST...LOL!!!!

But, and this is where I cast my most influential vote in my lifetime...was the mayor race. Now, the guy who won with 72% of the vote used to be a State Senator...is a (D)...and lives up on Lookout Mountain. No way I could vote for him - even though I knew he was already anointed - and had garnered nearly 3/4 of a million dollars in campaign contributions.

His next closest opponent, spent oh - I'd say about $2,000 of his own money...didn't take contributions...and said if he lost - well, he'd just go Crappie fishing.

...So, in the write in section for mayor on my ballot, I wrote in, "Crappie Luck". \:D

So far, I haven't seen if he got any more votes though.

All of that is why I choose to live in the county and not in the city limits. Littlefield's metro-gov't plan really worried me a few years ago.

I really couldn't stand Andre's talk show when he had it, but the new guy isn't much better. He likes to used statistics to support all of his causes, but ignores those that go against his liberal thought process.

LOL!!!

I sure appreciate your vote, though I hope this is not a trend that catches on. One of these flash mob type polling events and I'm elected.

What you gonna do with a cowboy when he don't saddle up and ride away? \:D

This is the concession letter from the runner-up in the mayor race:


Congratulations to Mr. Andy Berke for being elected Mayor of Chattanooga. This race was not marred with mud slinging or airing of "dirty laundry".

We as citizens of Chattanooga need to support Andy in his role as Mayor. One of the greatest things about America is the fact that we get to elect our leaders at a local, state or federal level.

I would like to thank everyone who voted for me. I would also like to thank everyone who did not vote for me.

When the results came in, I had a beer in one hand and a chicken wing in the other.


I will now be able to go crappie fishing all I want this spring and ride my motorcycle all summer.

Thanks, Guy Satterfield

Seems like a pretty down to earth fellow. If we had more people in govt. that ran out of sense of duty rather than for the lure of power, this country would be back on track.

Instead, we vote for people with a hammer in one hand and a sickle in the other \:\(
