Chattanooga is not my hometown, but I do consider it my second home. Seven years ago we decided to leave New Orleans because the wrong person was put back into office. And now today, that bad decision is being played out in our national news.
Since then, we have been very active in making our new home city a better place to live. Over the last three months, I have attended several of Mr. Berke’s meetings and events that have left me feeling enthusiastic and inspired. I like his open-mindedness approach to solving some of the top issues—asking for feedback, new ideas, and what we can do to make Chattanooga a city that offers more in jobs, education and quality of life.
I don’t want someone in office who has or “thinks” he has all of the answers… I want and need to know that there is room in his political plans for my opinion. If the metaphor is true that it takes a village to raise a child, then how many will it take to renew a city? He (Berke) cannot do this job alone. Cherita Adams
