As a small business owner, I want to ask the District 27 voters to support Tommy Crangle for Tennessee House. He is a small business owner himself and he knows that the engine for jobs and economic growth is small businesses. He believes that the state should do more to help create an environment where small businesses can thrive.
One of Tommy’s opponents says that giving incentives to large companies is just the way you have to “play the game” of economic development, and she points out that her job with the state was telling business owners what incentives they could get. Conversely, Tommy believes that compelling data should be presented before more plans are made to incentivize large businesses at the taxpayer’s expense. As a true conservative, he would never consider taking money from taxpayers a game to be played.
I have known Tommy for many years and know him to be a strong fiscal conservative and a smart businessman. I know he supports limited taxes, including the elimination of the Hall income tax, and I believe he would do all he could to protect taxpayers from excessive taxes.
