Rep. Marc Gravitt has been awarded the Tennessee Leadership Award by the Tennessee Association of Assessing Officers. Will Denami, Executive Director of the Tennessee Association of Assessing Officers, presented the award to Representative Gravitt on behalf of the statewide association.
“Rep. Marc Gravitt continues to study the issues and listen closely to his constituents he represents. Many of the issues he has been involved in require more than a surface level review and Representative Gravitt puts in the time to understand how state and local government work most effectively together. His practical approach and desire to improve government at the local level have been much appreciated by his fellow elected officials and citizens,” said Will Denami, executive director of the Tennessee Association of Assessing Officers.
Rep. Gravitt said, “Well, I didn’t expect to receive any award. This is a very nice honor and I certainly appreciate this award very much. Since I began in the General Assembly, I have had a local government understanding along with a 20+ year real estate perspective to help guide me through the various issues. I have enjoyed working with so many dedicated public servants and engaged citizens in my district. I hold the trust of public service in high regard and always try to work to ensure good efficient government for the taxpayers who fund it. This is an honor.”
