I am excited to say that I am officially announcing my candidacy for the 21st District State Representative Seat. I have prayed and thought long and hard about this decision. I have always been drawn towards public service and have dedicated my entire adult life to serving my community.
I began my career in law enforcement in 1995 at the Monroe County Sheriffís Office. In 1998 I felt that I would be able to serve more Tennesseans by joining the Tennessee Highway Patrol. I served in this capacity until being injured in the line of duty in 2012. Unfortunately, I was unable to return to work as a state trooper.
Our communities, state, and nation face tough challenges and decisions. We need a State Representative that has the determination to take on these challenges. Iíve always believed that a person must stay true to their word which is a direct reflection of a personís integrity. All of us, being affected by government in one way or the other, demand that we have the best person to represent our interests.
My core principles are simple Ė honesty, integrity, and compassion. I believe in the traditional conservative viewpoints of less government and citizenís rights. As a pro-life candidate, I will be the voice of the voiceless and defend the rights of the unborn. I will defend and protect the rights set forth for every citizen in the United States Constitution and the Constitution of the great State of Tennessee.
I must be honest; there is much work to be done. Iím confident however, that with your help and support we can truly keep Tennessee a safe and prosperous place to raise our families. I humbly ask for your support and vote in the August 2018 Republican Primary.
