(WDEF)  Lt. Governor Ron Ramsey (R-Blountville) made the below statement following the retention of Supreme Court Justices Gary Wade, Sharon Lee and Connie Clark:

“I would like to congratulate Justices Gary Wade, Sharon Lee and Connie Clark on their retention to the Supreme Court. Their victory was hard fought. But they weren’t the only victors -- they join the citizens of Tennessee who gained a fuller appreciation of the role of the judiciary in the state of Tennessee.

For the first time in decades, we had a real election for the Supreme Court. Our Supreme Court justices traveled the state of Tennessee this summer meeting Tennesseans and learning things about our state that you can’t find in any law book. Because of that, more Tennesseans than ever know the names of our Supreme Court justices and are aware they have a role in deciding who sits on the high court.  No matter how you look at it. That is the true victory, not just for this effort, but for the state of Tennessee.”

Dear Sir: I would like to petition you for understanding about my life because my life is unable to do everything. When our government and the United States of Justice Department have put a label of mental case on my head and therefore I would not dare do everything in our nation when I worry about the American trappers that they will trap me and police will kill me because I am mental case. Therefore, I have using my pen let me talk about sufferings of my life. Sincerely Bright Quang
