Patsy Hazlewood Is Grateful To The Voters

Monday, August 11, 2014

I want to thank the citizens of Hamilton County for exercising your right to vote in this election. There were many close races that showed us our vote really does count.  

Particularly, I want to thank voters of District 27 for the great honor of representing you as the Republican nominee for the Tennessee House. Currently, there are critical issues being raised in Nashville that directly affect our state, our county, and our district where a strong, informed voice is needed. Thank you for trusting me to be that voice and represent you in the decision-making process.  

My commitment to the residents of District 27 is to listen carefully, consider all options prayerfully, and make the best decision I can for us all.

To those who contributed to my campaign, whether financially or through plain hard work, I offer you my sincere appreciation. To my family, my campaign committee, and my friends— both old and new— I am forever grateful. 

Many thanks, and I will see you at the polls in November. 

Patsy Hazlewood 
Republican Nominee for State Representative, District 27
