Possible candidates for the Tennessee House of Representatives

The Mt. Juliet News carried an article today in which Rep. Susan Lynn all but announced her candidacy for the State Senate seat being vacated by Sen. Mae Beavers. After canvasing 11 or 12 potential candidates, there are only four who left the door open to a run:

  • Ed Hagerty (current City Commissioner, former Vice-Mayor)
  • Ray Justice (former City Commissioner)
  • Rob Shearer (former City Manager)
  • Wendell Marlowe (former County Commissioner)

So, in light of the article, we offer the following completely unscientific poll:

    That looks like 39 out of 50 votes to me (Guessing by the percentages). I realize this is an unscientific poll, but this is a site that is visited by many people, and I don’t think all of those votes are Rob’s family. I think this shows that Radiofreemj viewers realize that Rob is the guy for the job. His grasp of the issues is unparalleled and his insights are without equal. We couldn’t pick a better person to represent the 57th district than Rob Shearer.

    In a Republican primary every candidate’s conservative credentials will be inspected. Hagerty and Justice voted to buy land to give away to the YMCA. Marlowe has a substantial track record of voting for tax increases.

    Shearer appears to be the only real conservative in this poll.

    Okay, I have it on high authority that none of the votes for Rob are votes cast by Rob’s family, which basically does make this a run-away!

    I would hazard a guess Hagerty and Shearer would run in the Republican primary but Justice and Marlowe would run in the Democratic primary. Am I wrong?

    To get off of topic, did anyone see the plan to increase the wheel tax by $25.00 to buy two new high schools in Lebanon and Watertown? Thankfully, it will come before the voters. I know how I’m voting.

    How about we have a vote on whether to continue institutionalized indoctrination (Public school) or develop an alternative where the parents of the students attending the school are in charge of the learning process and where the political agenda and anti-God program has been dropped? Can you guess how I would vote?
