Glass says vote for Edlund, Vice mayor “sets the record straight.”...(with tongue firmly in cheek), Elliott says vote for Williams

Glass says vote for Edlund



I write this to urge you to vote for Bob Edlund — a friend and working associate of mine for over 10 years. I believe him to be the most qualified candidate to represent us as alderman on the north side for a lot of reasons.

• Bob has four years experience on the [Farragut] Municipal Planning Commission

• Bob has represented his homeowner’s association extremely well in dealings with the town and the Turkey Creek development.

• Bob has lived in the district for 14 years by comparison.

• Bob manages a $1 million function at Oak Ridge.

As a 15 year resident of Farragut and in serving on a town board for a long time, I strongly believe we need solid experience rather than “promises” and “visions.”

But however you feel, please vote.

Vice mayor “sets the record straight.”...(with tongue firmly in cheek)



In the interest of “full photographic disclosure” and accurate reporting, I must correct the quote attributed to me in last week’s West Side Faces section.

As my photo aptly demonstrated, what I had actually said to those in attendance at the annual Town Volunteer Banquet while Dan Barile was taking random photos was that I didn’t need to stop my remarks to pose “... because I don’t have a good side!”

And, the subsequent picture in the paper certainly proved my point! Fortunately for me, you don’t have to be pretty to serve the community and at least most of the time farragutpress gets [its] quotes right!

Elliott says vote for Williams



Leadership comes from many directions.

What I like best about John Williams is that he comes from the medical profession and will bring a fresh perspective to the Board of Mayor and Aldermen.

He has no vested interest in development projects except as a homeowner in our community. John Williams understands the importance of enhanced recreation and fitness to improve the health of Farragut residents.

I like his focus on working with the business community to take a priority look at renovating and redeveloping existing vacant commercial properties.

His idea of establishing a community center makes great sense and will provide value for many Farragut residents.

These are among the reasons why I am supporting John Williams for alderman, Ward I.
