Patsy Hazlewood Is The Best Choice For District 27 - And Response (2)

Tuesday, May 27, 2014

Patsy Hazlewood is the best choice for the State’s House of Representatives/District 27.  

Since we founded CapitalMark in 2007, Patsy has served an integral role as bank director – to include raising capital and weighing in on governance, regulatory and strategic initiatives.  Our industry navigates historic challenges, and Patsy’s vast experience as a business and community leader serve our board and management team well as we remain focused on building a successful enterprise.

Patsy has a practical, thoughtful approach to problem-solving.  She is a skilled listener who builds partnerships and collaborates with ease.  In everything she touches, she impacts our community’s ability to build our economy by attracting businesses and adding jobs, bolstering education and workforce readiness, enhancing our entrepreneurial infrastructure and by mentoring our emerging leaders. 

I can’t envision a more seasoned and effective leader for District 27.  Please join me in supporting Patsy Hazlewood.

On Aug. 7, I hope the residents of District 27 vote Patsy Hazlewood for their state representative. Patsy has been a proven leader in our community for some time now. She was recently selected by Governor Haslam to serve as the regional director for the Tennessee Department of Economic and community development, looking after the economic well-being of 10 counties.  

Patsy was an organizer and founder of Capital Mark Bank and Trust, and also worked for AT&T working on legislative affairs for the telecommunication business.  

Personally, she is a very compassionate and friendly person. Remember to vote for Patsy.

I am writing to express my support for Patsy Hazelwood for state representative for District 27.   

As a resident of Signal Mountain, but a native of Soddy Daisy, I know what is important to a broad spectrum of the residents of the district.   Like me, they want a small, efficient state government that encourages business, respects and protects the rights of individuals, and interferes in our lives as little as possible.     

Patsy believes in these things, and her unique experience for many years at the highest tiers of the business world and more recently as regional director of the “jobs base camp” program created by the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development gives her the means to put them into effect.     

She is a person of high character and strong values who will listen to and work for the people of our district.
