I am proud to announce that I have been endorsed by the Tennessee Building & Construction Trades Council. They believe I will be a strong voice for working families at the Tennessee legislature. I agree with them and vow to work hard for everyday families like yours and mine. If we want to keep the building and construction going strong in Tennessee we need to vote for candidates who will expand Medicaid. New businesses have started to turn away from locating in Tennessee because so many of our rural hospitals are closed. If we want to keep attracting new business, new building and new construction then we need to expand Medicaid to keep our hospitals open.
