The Team to Elect Tommy Crangle announced Thursday that former State Rep. Jim Vincent and his wife, Marilyn are endorsing Mr. Crangle for the District 27 State House seat. Mr. Crangle has received previous endorsements from sitting District 27 State Rep. Richard Floyd and former State Reps. Bobby Wood and Bill McAfee. Former Rep. Vincent made this statement:
“Tommy would approach the office as a true conservative. In getting to know Tommy, I have found him to be a statesman, not a politician. I believe his values are deeply entrenched. Tommy Crangle will make a wonderful representative for District 27.”
Mr. Crangle has maintained since the beginning of this campaign that he alone is the “Consistent Conservative” who has always voted Republican and consistently approaches issues from a conservative viewpoint, i.e., small government, strong national defense, personal responsibility, low taxes and U.S. Constitutional law.
Mr. Crangle responded, “Rep. Vincent’s endorsement validates the thinking of many voters I have met in Soddy-Daisy these past few months. Our campaign has been warmly received there and I believe our Constitutional values ring true to those in the Soddy-Daisy community. Jim and Marilyn have devoted years of service to this community and I am grateful for their endorsement.”
Mr. Crangle, a professional engineer and former TVA executive, is on the ballot for the Aug. 7 election.
Tennessee House District 27 includes Soddy Daisy, Falling Water, Red Bank, Mowbray, Signal and Lookout Mountains, Lookout Valley and Walden.
