Friday, September 22, 2017

Hamilton County Mayor Jim Coppinger on Friday announced his endorsement for Randy Boyd in his Republican campaign for governor.

 

“I am pleased to be here today to lend my full support and to officially endorse Randy Boyd in his campaign to be Tennessee's next Governor,” County Mayor Coppinger said.

“I worked closely with Randy when he served as our state commissioner of economic and community development – and he has been an incredible partner to Hamilton County - helping us grow thousands of new jobs and millions in new investment to keep our local economy growing.

 

“Randy’s leadership, as the architect of the Drive to 55 and the Tennessee Promise scholarship program, demonstrates his commitment to education, workforce development, and in creating greater opportunities for all of our citizens. No one I know works harder or cares more about getting the job done for the people of Tennessee. I hope everyone in Hamilton County will join me in supporting Randy Boyd as the next governor of our great state.”

 

“I am honored to have earned the endorsement of an outstanding leader like Mayor Jim Coppinger,” said Mr. Boyd. “We have worked together closely on job creation, education, workforce development, and a variety of other issues. I have seen first-hand his strong and steady leadership in serving the citizens of Hamilton County. And I am grateful for his trust and support.”

 

County Mayor Coppinger is the 92nd mayor to endorse Randy Boyd for Governor since he kicked off his statewide campaign in March.

 

In addition to Mayor Coppinger, several other mayors of Tennessee’s largest counties are supporting him including Shelby County Mayor Mark Luttrell, Montgomery County Mayor Jim Durrett, Washington County Mayor Dan Eldridge, as well as several mayors in Southeast Tennessee, including the county mayors in Bradley, Bledsoe, Franklin, Monroe, Rhea and Sequatchie counties.
