You Can Trust Esther Helton - And Response

Friday, July 13, 2018

Every election cycle, sadly, features negative campaigning. The rule of thumb proves true that if an inferior candidate, just like an inferior product, can’t stand on its own, the competition begins tearing down its opponent. It’s unfortunate. We just have to find the best one.
 
Esther Helton is the real deal and the person who will get my vote for State Representative to serve the eastern part of our county. I have watched Esther work as a leader to prevent a property tax increase in East Ridge. I have seen her work to tear down government barriers to get prized names like Chick-Fil-A, Bass Pro Shop and Hampton Inns to generate over 300 new jobs in our community. Believe it or not, her opponent calls this controversial. It’s only controversial if you want your property taxes to go up and these top brands to find another place to develop.
 
I strongly support and encourage others to simply reject the negative desperation of Esther’s opponent in the last stretch of this important election. Esther Helton is qualified, ready to serve and can be trusted with your vote.
 
Sincerely,
Bob McKamey,
President 
Capital Toyota

I met Ms. Helton during her campaign for City Council Woman of East Ridge.


I had not been extremely evolved with anyone campaigning asking me to vote for them. I have always looked into the various campaign websites, looked at who they said they were and what they said they were going to do and make a decision from what they said on paper.


I live in East Ridge and there had been rumors that a few different large name companies might be looking to locate to East Ridge. So, I decided to look more closely into who was running for City Council of East Ridge.


I asked Ms. Helton if she would meet with me and tell me why she wanted to be an East Ridge City Council Woman and what her plans for East Ridge?


To be very honest; the first thing I liked about Ms. Helton is that she was not at all intimidated by my two full grown Rottweiler’s in my back yard. Ms. Helton and I sat on my patio for more than an hour talking about how East Ridge as so much potential to be the best place in and around Chattanooga it live, shop, work, and raise a family.


Ms. Helton has proven herself to stay true to what all conservative voters want to see in her leadership.


Esther Helton is asking for our vote to be The Great State of Tennessee next District 30 Representative. I believe Ms. Helton will represent District 30 with her determination to see better Healthcare and better School Choice. Ms Helton is not a politician only out to be re-elected again and again. Ms. Helton truly wants to see District 30 growth without growing government through conservative policy.  If you want a voice that will represent you, your family & District 30 Community, Vote for Esther Helton
