Congressman Marsha Blackburn

7th District of Tennessee

U.S. CongressWashington, D.C. – The Tennessee Valley Corridor summit is an annual event bringing together the best of our innovators, engineers and technologists. It was an honor to return to provide an update on some of our work.

Whether it’s the transition from 4G to 5G, which will bring industries together to develop new technologies, or how self-driving cars factor into that equation, America must lead.

City of Clarksville - Clarksville, TNClarksville, TN – After the Clarksville City Council’s failure last week to approve the purchase of land for the Clarksville Family Athletic Complex, I saw a young soccer player leave the meeting in tears.
