Keith Grant For Signal Mountain Town Judge

Monday, June 11, 2018

I would like to endorse Keith Grant for the position of Signal Mountain town judge. Keith is a partner at Robinson, Smith, and Wells. During his 16 years of practicing law, he has tried numerous cases including criminal jury trials, civil trials, and administrative hearings. Currently he focuses primarily on medical malpractice defense and municipality defense, while continuing to practice criminal and domestic law as well. 

Keith is married to Karen Rennick Grant, the deputy director of the Chattanooga/Hamilton County Regional Planning agency. She is the chair of the Signal Mountain Design Review Commission, as well. Keith and Karen have two children, Isaac and Wyatt. They moved to Signal Mountain because of its small town feel, safe neighborhoods, and good schools. 

Keith has coached numerous children's sports teams. He is an active member of his church and currently serves as the chairman of the board of directors for the Children's Nutrition Program of Haiti.

From getting to know Keith, I feel that his motivation for running for judge of Signal Mountain is his sincere desire to serve the community of Signal Mountain with his legal expertise. I am going to vote for him, and I am currently wearing his T-shirt on my walks around Old Town. I recommend that all Signal Mountain citizens support him as well. I know he would be grateful for your vote.
