As a military veteran himself, with two tours in Iraq and one in Afghanistan, Dr. Green pledges to be a strong advocate for veterans.

“The state must work to incentivize businesses to hire veterans and decrease the unemployment rate of veterans, which is about 30% for veterans ages 20-24” says Green. As an incentive to recruit veterans to retire in Tennessee, Green proposes a state grant for veterans who start a small business in Tennessee.

Green says his number one priority when elected to State Senate is helping foster an environment that creates jobs.  As the President and CEO of a successful health care company, Dr. Green understands the difficulties placed on business owners in the current economic conditions.

Senate District 22 includes Montgomery, Stewart and Houston Counties.
