If the citizens of North Korea had weapons, they would not be living under the rule of a DICKtator.
Glad to see everyone made it through the first week of sequester. It was a tough week.
The best public private mayor money can buy. Nothing ever changes in Chattanooga.
The Obama Sequester.
The Obama Sequester: He Was For It, Before He Was Against It

nucanuck.... Why would anyone move back to Chattanooga? If you are in the medical field. You know Erlanger is going to lay off a large number of employees every five years or so and quietly hire entry level people to fill those positions to get salaries down. Experienced nurses, x-ray techs, etc. must work out of town. Odds are you will not have career in Chattanooga. If you are a consultant. You should open an office in Atlanta. Consultants in Atlanta supposedly know more about Chattanooga than any person living in Chattanooga. You can buy everything cheaper in Atlanta too. Chattanooga charges too much for everything. Artists in Chattanooga are not as good as the artists in Atlanta. Chattanooga is so anti-Chattanooga. Why would anyone move back? I don't think any mayor can overcome the anti-Chattanooga stigma.
nucanuck... 30 years on the job may not mean anything to you but I think it does. Is it a cure all? No but neither is a law degree at the Moccasin Bend Waste Water Treatment Plant. Both candidates have strengths and weaknesses. I think Satterfield would be more likely to reduce the size of city government and make common sense decisions in the best interest of taxpayers. Satterfield has financed his own campaign out of his pocket. Mr. Berke has raised $650,000, who is going to look after? Why did he raise money in Knoxville?
Mr. Berke is a fan of transparency. He co-sponsored a bill for corporations to disclose campaign contributions. I'm sure he has disclosed his donors and the amounts contributed. Maybe I missed them on his website and someone can provide a link for us all.

This pretty much lays it out. http://mayorsatterfield.com/
I no longer live in Chattanoga but Mr. Satterfield is an acquaintance and I think he is quite capable of handling the job.
