What Should I Expect In The One I Elect?

Thursday, July 17, 2014
The 27th District and the state of Tennessee is fortunate to have a man of proven principles, knowledge and dedication like Tommy Crangle offering himself to be our voice in Nashville. You see, it truly does matter who governs. The growth in jobs and our economy, the values preserved, our balanced budget and holding the line on expenditures and taxes by our Legislature have set a pattern that other States envy and seek to follow. We cannot be casual In our selection to fill this office.
Ask yourself this question, "what should I look for in a representative?" A builder, a planner and a restorer of that which is broken? As a civil and electrical engineer Tommy Crangle built a successful career in doing exactly this. He has been dispatched to other countries to direct the rebuilding of their war torn infrastructures or failing power systems., and been commended for his successful efforts: six times to Iraq and once to Mongolia.

We would seek a protector of values in a society allowing them to crumble. One knowledgeable of and guided by the strengths and protections of our Constitution. We would seek a consistent Conservative with a performance and voting record to support it. We would seek one with a long career of dedication and service to the needs of his District and to the philosophy of the Party he was proud to identify with.

That's what we expect from the one we elect. Tommy Crangle brings these to the table.
