Patsy Hazlewood Supports 2nd Amendment Rights - And Response (2)

Tuesday, July 22, 2014

As a District 27 voter I am supporting Patsy Hazlewood for state representative because I know she will protect our second amendment rights in Tennessee.  Patsy fully supports the Tennessee laws which do not impede the right to carry arms.  I recently heard Patsy speak and she very clearly said, under no circumstance would she vote in opposition to the second amendment right of  citizens.  

Most importantly, Patsy is concerned about education and job creation in southeast Tennessee.  I know she will do a wonderful job in Nashville.  

Vote Patsy Hazlewood for state representative.

I am writing in support of Patsy Hazlewood for the Tennessee House of Representatives in District 27.  I have known Patsy for many years starting with her tenure at BellSouth and AT&T and as regional coordinator for the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development's Southeast Tennessee office.   

I have worked on many job creation projects with her.  Several years ago we worked to recruit an Italian ink manufacturer to this region. This project was very hands on because the company had no operation in the United States and was quite unfamiliar with starting a manufacturing operation in the United States.  Patsy was instrumental in her efforts to convince KIIAN to locate in an existing industrial building in the Soddy Daisy Industrial Park. 

Patsy has also been a critical team player when working with existing business and industry. She has assisted the existing business community with permit expedition, business-to-business introductions and incentive negotiations.  Patsy was this community's liaison to state economic development officials and always represented southeast Tennessee with an efficient and effective voice. 

Vote for Patsy Hazlewood in the District 27 Republican primary for state representative.

Patsy Hazlewood is well known in the community as someone who gets things done. She has given much time and energy to many causes that make our community a better place. In addition to her many volunteer activities,  she has a firm foundation in the nuts and bolts of the work world. She has experience in both the private and public sector.

She understands the importance of job creation and education for the betterment of the citizens of our community. She is a conservative who is well-grounded in faith and family. Her integrity is unquestionable.

She has the combination of intelligence and “people skills” that will make her very valuable to the citizens of District 27 and Chattanooga. I would urge you to vote for Patsy for state representative.
