What Sets Kyle Hedrick Apart

Sunday, April 15, 2018

Everyone’s looking for that seemingly indefinable “something” in a candidate that sets them apart from the pack. 

Kyle Hedrick has presence. He’s confident. His self-possession ensures me I am comfortable placing him in front of our community and on the bench to instill the law and not make the law. 

Kyle Hedrick  has enthusiasm. His balance of energy and experience guarantees your desire to take him seriously. He’s committed…professionally, emotionally, spiritually, physically and intellectually. He exudes a desire for service to this community.

Kyle Hedrick  has strong ethics. He is committed to doing the right thing even when no one is looking. He is a giver and has a heart for making things happen, irrespective of the returned appreciation.

Kyle Hedrick  is innovative in making all those present in the courtroom feel comfortable and respected. He can actively solicit the opinion of others and is quick to praise others for their contributions. He will generate information that educates and energizes the public.

Kyle Hedrick  is consistent. He deserves admiration for being accountable for his decisions and results. He deserves admiration for having already been and is a public servant.

With that being said… join me in electing Kyle Hedrick, Circuit Court judge of Hamilton County, Tennessee.
