The state’s 31 district attorneys have recognized state Rep. Mike Carter with the Public Safety Advocate Award.
The Public Safety Advocate Award is given to a legislator who "recognizes the necessity of protecting our citizens and takes action to advance public safety."
“Representative Carter is keenly aware of the public safety issues faced by Tennesseans on a daily basis. He has taken action, by his support of legislation initiated by the District Attorneys Conference, to provide stronger protection to elder and vulnerable citizens and to child victims of sexual abuse, as well as to punish drug dealers more severely,” said Jerry Estes, executive director of the Tennessee District Attorneys General Conference.
“He is a committed leader and is more than deserving of this award.”
Rep. Carter serves District 29, which includes part of Hamilton County, in the Tennessee House of Representatives.
