Dr. Mary Headrick, a retired physician living in Maynardville, Tn., announced her candidacy for the United States Congress for Tennessee's Third District.

The Democratic primary is Aug. 7, and the general election is Nov. 4.

Dr. Headrick said, "All the people, especially the working families and retirees of District 3, deserve representation. They are not getting it. Special wealthy and corporate interests hold the power and benefits while the Middle Class shrinks and democracy falters. Too few people control too much money and power and they are grabbing more by 'buying' a Congress that will pass laws and regulations to enhance their personal profit at the expense of the rest of us. I will defend our economy, jobs, Social Security, Medicare, public education. We deserve value for our hard work and tax dollar. We the people of District 3 deserve representation we can trust, not uncompromising ideology. We deserve results, like a rise in minimum wage and to stop wasting resources in Afghanistan. We must be heard; we must restore democracy."
