Over the last week, we’ve had a good reminder of why we all need government to work. With temperatures plunging, we’ve seen local officials, nonprofit leaders, and citizens partner to help those in need.
Nashville rose to the occasion. Our police and fire departments have done amazing work to ensure that those in Nashville’s homeless community were directed to shelters. Scores of non-profits like Room In the Inn, houses of worship, and volunteers answered the call to help those in need – and much of that work was made possible through government support or funding.
That’s because in times of emergency, we recognize the need to come together and help each other.
I'm running to represent Nashville's 21st district in the Tennessee State Senate because our legislature is heading in the wrong direction. When I ran four years ago, I hoped to bring new leadership and fresh ideas to state government. Today, I still believe we need change and also a dose of plain common sense.
As your State Senator, I’ll work every day to bring people together to get work done on the issues that matter most. While that may sound pretty simple, it’s become increasingly rare. Too often our legislature is making Tennessee a punch line on late-night comedy shows instead of confronting the real challenges facing our families and communities.
