Challenger says ‘It’s Time for Change.’
(ASHLAND CITY) – Bruce Gibbs, democratic candidate for State Representative in District 78, today challenged State Representative Phillip Johnson to seven debates.“Every voter in Cheatham, Montgomery and Williamson Counties deserves to know where Phillip and I stand on the issues that are important to our communities,” Gibbs said. “I look forward to debating and discussing the issues in an open and objective forum, and I trust that Philip is willing to give the voters this opportunity.”
Gibbs has proposed a debate in each of the following communities: Ashland City, Pleasant View, Kingston Springs, Woodlawn, Cunningham and Fairview. These seven communities are located in the three counties that compose District 78.
“I believe it’s time for a change in the 78th district. We need real leadership that produces real results for our families,” said Gibbs. “We should be focused on bringing new resources to our schools and teachers, increasing access to affordable healthcare, and attracting more and better job opportunities to our community.”
