Tommy Crangle Will Stand For Constituents

Wednesday, July 09, 2014

Please accept my letter in support of Tommy Crangle, candidate for election to our 27th District of the Tennessee State House of Representatives. 

Tommy is a man who enjoys a level of enviable integrity as clearly recognized by those who have known/observed him in an impressive professional engineering career, a seven-day a week Christian, and a gentleman with a wonderful, caring concern for his fellow man.

Being a registered Republican who chooses to think as an independent, my sincere concern is that I can be blessed with a solid faith-based representative who can be counted on to resist the many “favors” of the army of lobbyists who are so active around the Legislative Plaza.  I have the utmost confidence in a “Representative Tommy Crangle” to stand strong for the good of his constituents.

Finally, public records show that the other “Republican” candidate voted in the Democratic Presidential Primary in both 2004 (Kerry/Edwards) and 2008 (Obama/Clinton) and even back to 1992 (Clinton/Brown).  Conversely, Tommy Crangle has voted only a Republican ticket—a very important point in how I shall cast my vote.  Vote for Tommy Crangle.

What about it Chattanooga?  Karen Dale Hixson (click for more)
