Patsy Hazlewood and I serve together as ruling elders at Signal Mountain Presbyterian Church. I have known Patsy for many years and greatly admired her abilities as a working executive, a volunteer leader, a wife and mother, and as a good friend. She carried out these roles simultaneously, balancing them successfully, and always with a smile.
I have no doubt that she will use her considerable abilities in Nashville to work for the citizens of District #27.
I'm off to vote early for Patsy. I hope you will too.

Many letters have been published in recent weeks endorsing Patsy Hazlewood for District 27 State Representative because of her experience and accomplishments in the public arena, and we certainly agree with those writers. Patsy’s successes in business with Bellsouth/AT&T and CapitalMark Bank, in government with the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development, in key civic organizations such as the Chamber of Commerce and United Way, and in her church, have been well chronicled.
Our family, however, is fortunate to know Patsy best as a great neighbor who welcomed us to the neighborhood more than 20 years ago. Since then we have shared laughs, tears, house-watching, carpooling, cat-feeding, and other experiences of the sort that loyal neighbors share. Despite many demands on her time, Patsy has never been too busy to be a good neighbor. We believe her caring spirit is the primary reason she has taken on the challenge of representing District 27 in the Tennessee State Legislature.
Patsy’s unusually wide range of experience, coupled with her caring spirit, her integrity and her good sense, make her the clear choice for District 27 State Representative in the Republican primary on Aug. 7.
