A campaign kickoff breakfast for Tommy Crangle, candidate for state representative in House District 27, will be held Saturday, from 8:30–9:30 a.m. at the Red Bank Community Center (on Tom Weathers Drive behind Erlanger North).  It will be hosted by Rep.

All House District 27 residents are invited.

Mr. Crangle is a licensed professional engineer and small business owner. A former senior executive with the Tennessee Valley Authority, Mr. Crangle also served as the U.S. Department of Defense’s senior American official in charge of restoring the Iraq power grid for which he received the highest award for a civilian authorized by the Pentagon Joint Chiefs, the Joint Civilian Service Commendation Award. He was also “coined” by General David Petraeus.

A life-long conservative Republican, Mr. Crangle is active in Republican politics, having served in various local leadership positions. He has also served on the Hamilton County Election Commission.  In 2012, he and his wife, Pamper, received the Harold & Lill Coker Achievement Award for their volunteer work with the Republican Party.

“We owe Representative Richard Floyd a huge debt of gratitude for the work he has done for us in Nashville and wish him the best of health and happiness as he retires and enters a new season of his life”, said Mr. Crangle.  “If elected, I look forward to serving the people and promoting the conservative values of those in District 27, including lower taxes, smaller and more efficient government, and improved education, all important for creating a climate of opportunity for our hardworking residents.”
