“The Conservation Action PAC’s board is impressed by my impressive history of commitment to sound environmental and conservation policies as a citizen. They believe I possess an obvious commitment to protecting Tennessee’s water, air and land! They know I will be an excellent Representative and that I will continue to create a responsible record on issues impacting the environment.” (excerpt from endorsement letter)

I am honored to announce that I have been endorsed by the Knoxville Interdenominational Christian Ministerial Alliance (KICMA).  We share the same values of creating a more cooperative and just community by assisting the poor, abused, neglected, and homeless.  We need to provide good paying jobs and affordable homes.  We need to support shelters for all of our vulnerable people.  Thank you KICMA!  Together we will do great things for our community.
