Herron to make candidacy official

 

Nashville — Roy Herron today made his candidacy for Congress official when he filed official qualifying papers to run in Tennessee’s 8th District at the Secretary of State’s Office in Nashville.

The former minister, small-town attorney and businessman said he would focus on creating jobs for Tennesseans, cutting spending and balancing the budget.

“The hardworking people of Tennessee’s 8th District didn’t create this tough economy, but we certainly feel the full effects of it,” Herron said. “My top three priorities in Tennessee will be jobs, jobs and jobs. My top three priorities in Washington will be cutting spending, cutting spending and cutting spending.”

A fiscal conservative, Herron said he is concerned that spending in Washington is out of control.

Roy Herron and his two oldest sons, John and Rick, wait as the clerk processes his official qualifying petition to run for U.S. Congress in Tennessee's 8th District.
