Marc Gravitt Grateful For House District 30 Support

Sunday, April 06, 2014

I’m extremely humbled by having the unique position of running unopposed to serve District 30 as its state representative. While I’m thankful for the opportunity to go to Nashville and represent my community, I will not accept this gracious opportunity by standing on the sidelines. I will continue my campaign with an emphasis on meeting with community leaders and citizens to highlight the good qualities of the district and discuss some of my ideas on the key issues – public education, tax reform, job creation, government spending and economic development – that I expect to be raised during the next legislative session.

 

I would be remiss not to thank the people who have assisted me along this journey. First and most important, I want to thank my wife, Cleo, and daughter, Kensley. A campaign is truly a family affair, and having them at my side was my strongest asset. I also want to thank those who helped spread the word, from the elected officials who publicly endorsed me to my campaign committee members – Vince Butler, Robin Smith and Barry Watson. Last, I want to thank all of the contributors to my campaign as your financial support made this day possible.
