Vote Joda District 30

Saturday, October 20, 2018

Joda is one of the few candidates for state office who can clearly state what he will actually do when elected to state office. This is a product of his strong work ethic and the education he received from the public schools of East Ridge and UTC. He’s a remarkable young man and deserves your vote.  

Joda supports expansion of Medicaid, because working people should never have to choose between earning a living or the healthcare they need. 

Joda is a fierce advocate for stronger public schools, higher teacher pay, and fully-funded classrooms to ensure every child has access to a great education. That’s what he has benefited from in his life and this is a great example of pay-it-forward.  

Joda will ask the legislature to raise the minimum wage, because anyone who does good work should get paid fairly. Makes sense.  

Joda was born and raised in East Ridge to a hard working family. He is an optimistic young leader. Joda is smart, cooperative, and caring. He will raise the level of civil discourse in Nashville. Surely we can all agree that is a good thing in our politics. Consider too the Tennessee values he supports through the policies he plans to implement.  

Vote Joda for District 30 and be proud that you did. He’s the future of Tennessee.
