The residents of Tennessee’s District 27 are very fortunate that someone of Patsy Hazlewood’s integrity, qualifications, and expertise decided to become a candidate from that district for Tennessee’s House of Representatives I met Patsy a number of years ago when I was a banker and she was an executive at Bellsouth. Even then, she exhibited the attributes of a successful leader. I found her to be someone who set high goals and successfully followed through on those goals, all the while gaining the respect of her peers.
When I became CEO of the Chattanooga Chamber of Commerce, Patsy served as my first chairman. During that time, the Chamber was in need of a radical reconstruction of its mission and direction. Patsy’s vision was instrumental in transforming the Chamber into the company it is today. She always faced challenges head on and worked toward collaborative solutions through dedication and hard work.
In short, Patsy is the clear choice. She is a true leader who has distinguished herself through her professional career; her personal, church, and family commitments; and, her volunteer community service. I encourage you to vote for Patsy Hazlewood on Aug. 7.
