Tommy Crangle Has Strong Conservative Values

Wednesday, June 18, 2014

We are submitting this letter to express our support for Tommy Crangle for the Tennessee House, District 27 seat.  We met Tommy and his wife Pamper at church and have known them for over 10 years.  We know them as honorable, upstanding, loving Christians. 

We know that Tommy has strong conservative values based on the strict interpretation of the U.S. Constitution as the basis for all our laws.  His strong work ethic and leadership abilities will be an asset to the citizens he will represent.  As a result of a solid Christian foundation in his life and because of his beliefs that our Constitution was written for all Americans, Tommy will be a representative for everyone in his district; not just those who will benefit him, his friends or the elite. 

Too often when we go to the polls to vote we try to chose the candidate who is the lesser evil.  It is not often that we are given the opportunity to vote for a person with the integrity and ability that Tommy possesses.  We believe that Tommy has all the qualifications and abilities that you could ask for in a representative for district 27 and urge you to cast your vote for him.
