You Can Trust Patsy Hazelwood - And Response

Monday, June 2, 2014

Residents of District 27 need to know Patsy Hazelwood. They should know a vote for Patsy is a vote for merit, and for trust when we vote in August to elect our new state representative. 

It is my pleasure and privilege to know Patsy Hazelwood for three decades—I have seen her in action in many leadership roles in our business and volunteer community.  When Patsy commits to someone or a project, she is “all in” and she delivers.  I have witnessed the hard work and dedication she put into work for our region building partnerships and working on enhanced economic development. Patsy has a tremendous work ethic, traditional values. She has passion and perseverance in working on issues meaningful to our community.  

We have seen Patsy exhibit wonderful character traits in Chattanooga for 34 years—there is no doubt we can expect her values and characteristics will work for us in Nashville.

My friends in this district appreciate an elected official that has no political obligations—Patsy will speak for all, for each of us.

Vote for Patsy Hazelwood, state representative of District 27.

We have a chance to elect a new state representative this time. I know all three that are wanting the job and they are good people, but we need a leader.  Patsy is the person that will take the concerns of our district to Nashville and the other leaders will listen.  They will recognize her ability to lead, look at her resume and the positions she has held.  

Patsy will bring a fresh breath and thinking to the job.  Sometimes we need to think outside the box to move ahead.  Let's give Patsy Hazelwood that chance to lead us forward.
