Support For Bill Lee As Next Governor Of Tennessee

Friday, July 13, 2018

Let’s elect Bill Lee as our next governor of Tennessee! My brother Fred and I have had the privilege of working with Bill and his wife Maria as they, after a year of thought and prayer, decided to offer Bill’s extensive knowledge and skills in business, agriculture and community service to the citizens of Tennessee. Fred has served Bill as his campaign Treasurer and I as Bill’s regional finance chair. In those capacities we have witnessed firsthand the quality and ethical campaign Bill has run.

Bill has brought to the campaign his great business skills running a moderately financed campaign that has relied on extensive travel through all our cities, towns and counties. These travels have acquainted Bill and Maria with our state’s great attributes as well as the issues and problems we face.

 
Bill is a seventh generation Tennessean raising cattle on a family farm, running the state’s largest commercial heating, air conditioning and plumbing company, and providing servant leadership to his church, community and individuals. We were gratified to see the Free Press side of the TFP endorse Bill this morning. Governor for Tennessee – Bill Lee.
