Tennessee Democratic Party

Election 2012Nashville, TN – Tennessee State House candidate Lauri Day’s support for private school vouchers could break the backbone of the middle class: Tennessee’s public schools.

“Lauri Day’s support of private school vouchers amounts to a tax break for wealthy Tennesseans and it’s paid for by diverting millions away from the schools our working and middle class families rely on,” said Chip Forrester, chairman of the Tennessee Democratic Party. “Instead of handing out vouchers of false hope that fail to even cover the cost of tuition at many private academies, we should renew our commitment to student achievement by strengthening the schools we have, keeping class sizes small and empowering great teachers.” «Read the rest of this article»

John C. Tidwell

Election 2012Clarksville, TN – District 74 State Representative John Tidwell makes the first impression of a “good old country boy” who just climbed out of the combine to greet you.   Once you get him started, he’s like your country neighbor talking about the crops and the livestock, he’s probably not going to stop talking until you tell him you’ve got to get home for dinner, but make no mistake, he’s just as comfortable roaming the halls of the Tennessee Legislature as he is leaning against the fencepost “shooting the breeze.”

Tidwell was a guest on “Clarksville in Review” this weekend on WJZM 1400am with host Hank Bonecutter, on the heals of last Thursday’s primary where Lauri Day defeated Nick Steward for the republican nomination.
