Tommy Crangle Is The Best Candidate For District 27

Friday, July 18, 2014

Tommy Crangle is the best candidate for the Tennessee House, District 27 seat.  He is a man of integrity that believes very deeply in government “by” the people and “for” the people.  I worked for TVA but did not know Tommy personally until after I had retired.  However, I heard of him during my tenure as he was well known for his accomplishments in getting major, difficult projects completed and well known to be a fine upstanding man.   His work for TVA was talked about in the Agency as he exemplified a fair and honest man that could “get the job done.”   

Since I have retired, we have become better acquainted with he and his wife.  Tommy’s strong conservative values are reflected throughout his life and in his home and business.  Tommy’s life has proven that he daily lives what he believes in – his Christian values; his strong work ethic; his passion to serve others; and his passion for a government that represents everyone.   

To have Tommy Crangle represent the people in the Tennessee House, District 27 would be beneficial for all the people in this district as well as other districts.  Please vote for Tommy Crangle, Tennessee House, District 27.

The Message Of The GOP Is Hate And Division
