I can't believe that poor excuse of a mayor, Ron Littlefield, has the audacity to be seen with the police chief after everything he has done to curtail the Chattanooga police department. It's no coincidence that crime in Chattanooga has increased while Littlefield has been mayor. C.P.D. is stretched so thin right now that crime will continue to increase until more cops are put on the street.
Fulmer is a desperate man grasping at straws. He knows the end is near. Take a hike Junior Samples!
I grew up in East Ridge and come back to visit on a regular basis. The fact of the matter is East Ridge has turned into a ghetto. The predominant business are Tattoo parlors, check cashing places, bad credit auto lots, moblie home lots.Oh wait, lets not forget the flea market which attracts every scum bag in Chattanooga. Add these fine establishments with the juvenile detention center that is East Ridge Middle School and East Ridge High School. Is it any wonder that there is so much cheap housing in East Ridge. Seriously, the merchants association, as well as, the loacl government should do more to attract reputable businesses like name restaurants or retail establishments and last but not least, stop allowing the city of Chattanooga to dump every sorry, no good for nothing kid in the laps of the local schools and maybe, just maybe, it can become the East Rdige that I remember.
