House of Representatives Member Patsy Hazlewood filed her 4th quarter 2017 financial report showing a total of $161,376.76 in the campaign coffers following contributions totaling $69,910 from 130 donors since the previous report.

“What a privilege to serve the wonderful citizens of District 27 who are so committed to their schools, a growing economy and public safety,” said Rep. Hazlewood, first elected in 2014. “I am so humbled by the support but know the greatest honor is working together with my neighbors to better our communities.”

She serves as a member of the House Finance, Ways & Means Sub-Committee and full Committee, the House Business and Utilities Committee, as well as the House Ethics Committee. Her  legislative tenure "reflects a record of support for public education through increased funding for classrooms, teacher pay and commonsense standards, for a pro-growth business environment that fosters job growth through the reforms of business taxes and removal of government regulations and for workforce development through programs to train, certify and educate Tennesseans for their best employment options," her campaign said.

“I stand with Governor Haslam in the work to keep our state’s government limited while expanding the opportunities for all Tennesseans through education, work and good communities for our families,” stated Rep. Hazlewood, whose district is the western edge of Hamilton County that includes Lookout Valley, Lookout Mountain, Signal Mountain, Walden, Red Bank, Soddy Daisy, Bakewell and Mowbray Mountain.

The Republican Primary for state races is Thursday, Aug. 2.
