“When I heard that Chancellor Fansler was up for re-election, I felt compelled to tell my story on his behalf,” said Clark in the ad. “For adoptive families like mine and others that might go before that court, it is crucially important that we re-elect experienced and qualified judges to the bench.”
Eight years ago I tragically lost my only two sons, ages 9 and 5 to a house fire. I was devastated and never knew I would have children again.Fansler, who holds the "Part II" seat, began practicing law at Bond, Carpenter, & O'Connor before co-founding what is now Stokes, Williams, Sharp and Davies in 1989. He was elected as Knox County Chancellor, Part II, Sixth Judicial District, State of Tennessee in 1998, and re-elected in 2006. Over the course of his career, he has presided over 25,000 cases in Knox County Chancery Court, including those of adoptive families.
Until destiny brought me together with Kalli and Bentley.
I have been blessed with the privilege of adopting two wonderful children.
Chancellor Fansler helped make this possible in such a gentle and caring way.
He worked with us, he cried with us. He created a life for all three of us.
I can’t imagine anyone else behind the bench.
To adoptive families like mine, this vote matters, so please, on August 7th, vote a good man back to Chancery Court.
He faces Clarence Pridemore in the August election. As always, send over your campaign stuff for publication consideration.
