Dear Friends,Early voting begins today. I ask for the honor of your vote; that you to would allow me to serve you again for the next two years.
I sent out a robo-call last night to let you know about a convenient, new early voting location located at Lighthouse Church on Saundersville Rd. at Saundersville Ferry Rd. Voting is from 8 am – 6 pm, M-F and from 8 am – 1 pm on Saturdays.
While Washington DC has broken down, I hope you see a difference in our state government. Even compare us to any other state – our GDP growth is 6.4% - nationally it is 1%. We are lean, we do not deficit spend, we balance our budget, we have cut your taxes and banned an income tax. I know that it is our Tennessee values that makes us different.
We want you and your family to feel pride in your work and schools. Major employers are moving here - which in turn helps small businesses, unemployment is low, personal income is rising.
Our schools are the fastest improving in the nation, we have directed more money towards education than any other General Assembly ($1 billion) without raising your taxes. Every graduating student can attend two years of community college or tech school for free by using lottery dollars.
Our infrastructure challenges are due to our tremendous growth but our roads are still rated the 3rd best in the nation and we are taxed the third least per mile driven. We have a plan to meet those challenges by taking advantage of the massive budget surpluses generated by our economic expansion – last year we paid off half of a massive debt and directed that money to TDOT. This year we will pay off the remainder, and direct that money plus budget surplus money towards transportation creating a new dedicated funding stream. Electric and hydrogen vehicles do not contribute to the road fund – we will agree on a plan this year so that they contribute too. In the 2016 – 2017 budget that we just passed – the construction of Hwy 109 is funded and will start soon – in fact, TDOT projects are occurring on every state road in Wilson County.
I have passed many bills that I write to you about in my newsletter but as far as the big picture is concerned such as I mentioned above, it really has been a Republican lead team that has accomplished these good things through our Tennessee values. I am honored to be a part of making Tennessee strong. I ask you for your vote.
Thank you – Susan Lynn
