“As Tennessee continues to grow, our rural communities are facing serious challenges. Having grown up on a dirt road in a small rural town, I have seen those challenges firsthand and look forward to working with this task force to find solutions,” noted Green.

Currently the Vice Mayor of Bolivar and a managing director of a large national foundation, Dr. Walley has served as Commissioner of both the Alabama Department of Human Resources and as Commissioner of the Alabama Department of Children’s Affairs. Prior to his service in Alabama, Walley served in the Tennessee House of Representatives from 1990 to 2000 and subsequently as the Commissioner of the Tennessee Department of Children’s Services.

“It’s a privilege to have been asked to chair this task force addressing the special needs that our rural counties and communities are facing in the 7th District. When Mark spoke with me about my original interest in considering a run for Congress, I shared that we cannot pass by the needs and hopes of our rural families and farmers,” stated Walley. “I am proud that he not only has this same, deep conviction but intends to make sure we lift up the voices and values of our rural 7th district citizens.”
