10 Bradley County Commissioners Endorse J. Adam Lowe For District 22 State Representative

Tuesday, June 24, 2014

Ten of Bradley County’s commissioners are backing J. Adam Lowe for the vacant state representative. 

Speaking as individuals and not an official commission, 10 current commissioners and one former commissioner signed an open letter to district constituents.  In the letter, commissioners expressed:

“Dear Voters, Nashville needs dedicated, studied, and productive leadership and J. Adam Lowe has proven to offer just that.  We have worked with him and know what he is capable of achieving for our community.  He is prepared, experienced, and bold.  Let’s send him to Nashville to represent the 22nd District.”

Mr. Lowe is seeking the District 22 seat being vacated by Rep. Eric Watson who won his bid for Bradley County sheriff.  Also seeking the seat is Dan Howell, former press aid to the Bradley County mayor.

“It is an honor to have the endorsement of these local leaders,” said Mr. Lowe.  “These men and women are elected by the people for their good judgment.  What honors me is that they have worked closely with both candidates and know us best.  I am more than grateful for the confidence they have expressed and that they feel my experience is needed in Nashville.”

Mr. Lowe says his campaign has sought no endorsements from political personalities or career politicians.  Of that Mr. Lowe said, “We live in a time where federal and state bureaucrats are imposing their will on local communities.  I feel that those who live in a community know what is best for it and those are the folks I will represent if elected.”

The election for state representative will be decided in the Aug. 7 primary for Bradley, Meigs, and Polk Counties. Early voting begins on July 18 at selection locations.
