“I will work to make sure our part of Tennessee is not left behind when it comes to public education and economic development.” – John Gillespie

Shelby County is my home, and I don’t want to see us get left behind other parts of the state.  I’m running for the State House to get good things done for our community.  I believe I can be an effective advocate for Shelby County on Day One.

Please take a few moments to read about my stand on the important issues facing our community and state.  I hope you’ll like my Facebook page and consider volunteering for my campaign.

It’s an honor to put my name forth as a candidate for State Representative.  I want to serve our community and I ask for your vote!

 

Best wishes,
