No one will out work State Rep. Judd Matheny (R-Tullahoma) as he continues to campaign throughout the Sixth Congressional District in his quest to win the Republican nomination for Congress and the general election in 2018.
On Monday, he spoke to a gathering of the Fairfield Glade Republican Party in Cumberland County.
Matheny touched on the conservative themes that have been the key message of his campaign since his formal announcement last month.
He pledged to focus on national security, state sovereignty, and better healthcare, transportation, and housing for our rapidly growing senior population, a topic of particular concern for residents of Fairfield Glade, a well known and popular retirement community.
Matheny also told the audience about his personal background in law enforcement and the military, as well as his fifteen years as a member of the Tennessee House of Representatives.
He provided some detailed information about the recent session of the Tennessee General Assembly, which saw a battled over the gas tax increase, which he opposed, but which ultimately passed, was signed into law, and went into effect on July 1.
Matheny also focused on one of his key pledges to improve communications between Washington and the state government if elected.
He closed by asking the audience members directly for a promotion to Congress based upon his strong record of conservatism in the Tennessee General Assembly, and promised to come back in the fall to participate in the Fairfield Glade Republican Party’s annual picnic.
The Sixth Congressional District is currently represented by Rep. Diane Black (R-TN-06), who is expected to announce her candidacy for governor some time in the next month or two.
At his announcement last month, Matheny made it clear that he was in the race whether or not Black decides to run for governor.
