To the Editor:
Michael Marsh is a man of integrity who seeks to assist his community in developing new initiatives that will bring about opportunities for economic growth through encouraging small businesses and less taxes due to careful budgeting and spending of existing revenue. The results would mean more money for the citizens and community for their investment into creating more jobs, more affordable housing, and greater protection through service agencies. Michael and his wife, Wanda, have operated a successful and award-winning auto service business in the District 7 for over 25 years. Their positive service and customer satisfaction testify to their loyalty to this district as well as the entire Anderson County.
Michael and Wanda are involved citizens in the community and Oak Ridge Schools and have the largest Wildcat banner in the world over their business. Not only do they display their banner of support but, in addition, have given funds and support to athletics in the community since coming to this county. In addition, they were active in being a training station for the Career and Technical Auto Tech students for the work-based learning program at Oak Ridge High School. Giving back to the community and schools has been a priority for Mike and Wanda. They are definitely loyal and back up that loyalty with their time and funds. Both want to get more involved with the elementary school through high school in this community.
Mike and Wanda are active in their faith and devote their talents and funds to helping the less fortunate and those needing assistance. They have servant hearts and are always available to help. Mike lives his faith and beliefs each day. His philosophy is projected in the old saying, “Stand up for your beliefs or you don’t stand for nothing.” Mike stands up! Mike will not back away from truth but walks toward doing the right thing for his family, his faith, and his community, and his country.
Former assistant principal at Oak Ridge High School
