Jack Daniel Announces Bid For District 39 House Seat

Monday, April 28, 2014

Jack Daniel has announced his candidacy for state representative in District 39. District 39 encompasses Moore and parts of Franklin and Marion counties. Mr. Daniel and his wife Debbi have five children and reside in Huntland where they are lifelong residents.

Mr. Daniel graduated from Huntland High School where he played football.  Upon graduation from MTSU with a B.S. Degree in Chemistry, he was commissioned as a second lieutenant in the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers where he served for 28 years rising to the rank of lieutenant colonel. He subsequently worked as an engineer in the aerospace/defense industry, developing integrated systems for the Skylab. He later worked in the automobile parts manufacturing industry, chemical industry, nuclear power industry, and returned to the aerospace/defense industry where he served as a quality assurance director. 

Campaign officials said, "Jack was trained by our military to be a leader in the military and in the private sector where he trained entire staffs from top to bottom on how to operate their businesses more effectively, efficiently, and with greater sales, profitability, and customer satisfaction. Jack wants to put these skills to work as a freshman State Representative. Jack will bring effective, senior leadership with Tennessee values to the General Assembly."

Mr. Daniel has served in elected office as an alderman for the town of Huntland, Tn., and on its industrial board. He also prepared grant proposals and supervised the police department. He has served his hometown as vice president and president of the Huntland High School Alumni Association. 

Mr. Daniel said he is ready for the challenges of this position. He believes Tennessee will be a better place when we take the words of President Kennedy to heart,  “Ask not what your country can do for you, but ask what you can do for your country.”
