Patsy Hazlewood Endorsed By Claude Ramsey For District 27 State Representative

Tuesday, June 17, 2014
Claude Ramsey, former Hamilton County mayor and Tennessee deputy governor, has endorsed Patsy Hazlewood for Tennessee state representative of District 27.

"Patsy Hazlewood is best qualified to serve District 27," said Mr. Ramsey. "Patsy will faithfully represent Tennessee voters, and I am confident she will get things done for our region and our district."

Selected by Governor Haslam to serve as regional director for the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development, Hazlewood managed economic development in the ten-county southeastern region for just under 3 years.
Hazlewood is also an organizer and founding director of CapitalMark Bank and Trust. Before her work with CapitalMark, she worked with AT&T and BellSouth for more than 30 years as Assistant Vice-President for Legislative and External Affairs and in other leadership capacities.

"Patsy has worked hand-in-hand with leadership in Nashville to bolster our local economy," said Mr. Ramsey. "As state representative, she will continue to work hard to bring jobs to District 27 and maximize the region's potential for industrial development, particularly in the north end of Hamilton County."

"I am grateful and honored to receive Claude Ramsey's endorsement," said Ms. Hazlewood. "He is one of our state's greatest Republican leaders, and I admire his commitment to job creation and education in our region— a commitment I will continue on behalf of District 27."

"Citizens deserve a proven leader and a representative they can trust to faithfully serve their interests in Nashville," said Mr. Ramsey. "Patsy Hazlewood will do just that. Patsy is competent, qualified, and ready to serve."

Patsy Hazlewood will be on the ballot in the Aug. 7 election. Early voting begins, Friday, July 18. Tennessee House District 27 includes Soddy Daisy, Falling Water, Red Bank, Mowbry, Signal Mountain, Lookout Mountain, Lookout Valley, and Walden.
