|Greetings Fabulous Folks of the Fortieth!|
|I am in hopes that you and yours have had a grand summer and, like myself, perhaps you are welcoming more of a “routine” in your day. With Labor Day approaching us next weekend, my favorite time of the year, autumn, is just around the corner!|
Now that Extraordinary Session is behind us, and Representative Cameron Sexton is our House Speaker, we have turned the page to a new chapter of leadership and are ready to get to the people’s business. The second half of the 111th General Assembly will be here before we know it.
Many of you know, since I was sent to Nashville as your Representative in 2009, every other year in September I tour the schools in the 40th district visiting classrooms, handing out Pocket Constitutions to students, reading to elementary students, and in some cases taking my guitar to Pre-K and kindergarten classes. Education is one of our state’s top five expenses. Second only to TennCare, it is important to know the heartbeat of the schools in District 40. This listening tour enables me to be a better voice for the twenty-eight schools I represent. When we resume session this January, information learned will help me make informed decisions while serving on the Full House Education Committee. My office is currently confirming the final details, and I am looking forward to visiting the fabulous teachers and students throughout Dekalb, Smith, Trousdale, and Sumner Counties.
I want to remind you that, beginning in September, Coffee Conversations resume on Friday mornings beginning at 8 a.m.
The schedule is as follows:
First Friday-Angie’s Diner Smithville, TN,
Second Friday-Early Bird Café Hartsville, TN
Third Friday-Smith County Chamber Carthage, TN
Fourth Friday-Mabel’s Diner Gallatin, TN
This is an informal time for us to visit and discuss issues at hand over coffee. Currently, I am working on a legislative package for 2020.
I also want to mention if you need to contact me my office number is 615-741-2192. Ask for Grace, my assistant, or you may email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Many of you have my cell phone number as well.
Please do not use Messenger on Facebook as I no longer use that app.
Have a blessed and safe Labor Day Weekend!
