The Team to Elect Tommy Crangle announced that Charlie Hunt and Jeanne Wood will co-chair Mr. Crangle’s run for the Tennessee District 27 seat, now occupied by Representative Richard Floyd, who has announced his plans to step down. 

Mr. Hunt said, “When Tommy asked me to help him, I didn’t hesitate to say I would do anything I could.  He is highly qualified, a staunch conservative republican, and has been actively involved in local  Republican politics for years.

I live in District 27, and have no doubt that he will represent his constituents well."

Ms. Wood is active in the local Pachyderm organizations and serves as an officer in the Tennessee Valley Republican Women. She said, “We are excited about the opportunity to support Tommy and believe he will be a solid, principled, conservative to represent us in Nashville.”

Mr. Crangle is a licensed professional engineer and a former senior executive with the Tennessee Valley Authority before his early retirement in the late 90s. After his early retirement from TVA, Mr. Crangle worked with the Department of Defense and the Department of State, serving in various positions. As the senior liaison with the Iraqi government to restore the Iraq power grid which provides electricity to 25 million Iraqis, Mr. Crangle was responsible for the execution strategy for a $5.4 billion budget.  For that work, he was awarded the Joint Civilian Service Commendation Award by Iraqi Administrator Paul Bremer, the highest award for a civilian authorized by the Pentagon Joint Chiefs.

Mr. Crangle has been endorsed by current and previous District 27 Representatives Richard Floyd and Bill McAfee, and he has also received the endorsement of former Representative Bobby Wood.

“I will run and vote based on fiscally and constitutionally conservative principles that have guided my life.  I pledge to be easily accessible and work hard to represent the people in District 27,” said Mr. Crangle.
