Former Tennessee Deputy Governor and Hamilton County Mayor Claude Ramsey endorsed Dan Howell’s campaign for State House District 22.
Mr. Ramsey said, "Dan has the temperament, background, and experience to be a state representative. I have been a state representative and it takes a unique person – someone with patience and a lot of common sense. That goes a long way in the Tennessee House of Representatives – someone who thinks and then acts, rather than acts and then thinks. Dan Howell will be a great state representative."
Mr. Howell said, "I am grateful to have the support of Claude Ramsey. As a former state representative, county mayor, and deputy governor, Claude knows exactly what it takes to lead East Tennessee, and I am humbled he has put his confidence in me. Claude has set a great example as a public servant and I hope to follow in his footsteps."
District 22 covers parts of Bradley County, and all of Polk and Meigs counties.
For the past five years, Mr. Howell has served Bradley County as executive assistant to the county mayor. He has also served on the Chamber of Commerce Board, the Cleveland/Bradley Greenway Board, and the county Storm Water Advisory Board, as well as directed the county’s Three Star Program. Since 2010, he has served Bradley, McMinn, Meigs, and Polk counties on the Tennessee Republican Party State Executive Committee.
