I am writing today to express my gratitude for the trust and confidence you have placed in me as your State Senator. Kay and I hope to have earned your continued support as I seek re-election on August 4th.
Four years ago, I said we believe our political parties should be more than just social groups – that we are Republicans because of something greater – our common sense, East Tennessee conservative values.
My brother and I had a humble upbringing, and our parents instilled core, conservative principles as a way of life. Now, as we face the impact of liberal federal policies trickling down to East Tennessee, our core values are becoming challenged on a daily basis. I assure you that I have not grown weary in my pursuit. My personal motivation to serve begins with the goal of honoring and securing those principles for future generations.
Despite the issues that have dominated national news cycles and stirred up public concern, we have made significant progress here at home. Our job growth is unparalleled, our educational system continues to regain local control, and we have cut taxes, reduced spending, and balanced the budget. Our conservative leadership is standing strong, holding the line, and making Tennessee a better place to live, work, play, and raise a family.
My focus and determination is more steadfast than ever, and I intend to build upon this progress to address the priorities in our state and represent the values of our East Tennessee community. With your help, conservatives will continue to have a voice and see tangible results if I am entrusted to continue my service to this district.
I am dedicated to fiscal conservatism and will continue to view the taxpayers’ dollar like it’s my own. We will continue to operate under a balanced budget where waste and redundancy are eliminated, and I will champion investments that position our economy for long-term success.
I will continue to build upon the momentum found with tax relief and improvement in our local business environment to attract and expand job opportunities for our citizens.
When it comes to education, I will persistently guard our local control, ensure fairness in our state’s education plan and funding formula, and maintain high standards. I remain committed to Governor Haslam’s Drive to 55.
I humbly ask for your continued support, your wise counsel, and your partnership to reach out to voters across this district and make sure we remain united in our service to our neighbors. I look forward to speaking with you soon to hear your thoughts about this campaign, to answer your questions, and to earn your vote in the upcoming election.
