Carr Town Hall meeting in Cowan

Posted on Wednesday, January 15, 2014 at 7:56 pm

A Town Hall meeting with Joe Carr, candidate for the U.S. Senate, will be held on Saturday, Jan. 18, at 1 p.m. at the Cowan Center for the Arts.

Carr is a state representative in the Tennessee General Assembly and is now a candidate for U.S. Senate in the Republican Primary.

The following are some snippets from the campaign website carrfortn.com:

“Joe Carr is a conservative state representative from Middle Tennessee. Rep. Carr is also a farmer, small businessman, husband of 30 years, father to Joe Jr., Maddie and Erin, a grandfather and a man of faith. Joe and Ginny own Cedar Snag Farms, a 95-acre farm in Lascassas, just a stone’s throw from Murfreesboro in Rutherford County.

“Joe is also a strong leader. He believes elected officials are elected to lead and must lead on principle. First elected in 2008, Joe immediately began championing free enterprise reforms to help create jobs, promote small business and create a better environment for Tennesseans to raise their families.

“He spearheaded the movement to protect Tennessee families from the federal government’s dereliction of duty in fighting back against illegal immigration. He understands illegal immigration punishes law-abiding Tennessee taxpayers and hurts Tennesseans struggling to find work to keep a roof over their kids’ heads and put food on the table.

“Carr’s leadership, sometimes at odds with leaders in his own party, resulted in Tennessee enacting the toughest illegal immigration laws in the country. Carr also led the charge to eliminate the death tax and crafted the captive insurance bill. His legislative accomplishments have helped Tennessee become the fourth most business friendly state in the nation.”

Carr is taking this opportunity with the Town Hall meeting to connect with concerned citizens and voters in the South Middle Tennessee area. For more information, please contact David James at (931) 968-9376 or Sgt. Major Larry Williams at (931) 924-3000.

The South Middle Tennessee Republican Leadership Group is sponsoring this town hall event. It is open to the public and there is no charge for admission.

Cowan Center for the Arts is located at 301 Montgomery Street in Cowan.
