To the Editor:
I have felt compelled to write a letter in support of Jerry Creasey for re-election to Anderson County Commission.
Jerry does not represent me as my commissioner in Oak Ridge. But he has served religiously, trying not to discriminate against anyone.
He has served on the Anderson County ADA oversight board to help the elderly, as well as all ages, to see that disabled rights are enforced and that state and federal laws are met.
Recently, the Oversight Committee has helped inspect the facilities at volunteer fire departments, the new Anderson County jail, and the addition of a new elevator in the Courthouse. The new second-floor bathrooms are now ADA-compliant.
The committee is looking to add the correct ADA parking signs at the Dickens Building and the Senior Center in Oak Ridge.
Through the years, Jerry Creasey has gone to many committee meetings all over the county at night.
Jerry Creasey supports the many issues that a family and citizens need.
Time after time, I have witnessed his years of experience save taxpayers money when new commissioners fail to have the knowledge to meet current needs when issues are brought before County Commission.
