"I was born, raised, and educated here and I live in Monteagle. I know the people here in Tennessee and I understand the challenges families face every day. People are frustrated because Washington isn’t working. Now more than ever, we need public servants to come together to fight for our communities by creating jobs, improving education, and expanding access to healthcare. I’m running for Congress because we need leaders with fresh ideas to get our state -- and our economy -- back on track."
- Lenda Sherrell, Democrat for Congressional District 4
A STATEMENT FROM LENDA SHERRELL:
I’m proud of the campaign we ran, and even more proud of the work you did to make life better for the people of this district. I want to take this moment to thank the many volunteers and supporters who gave so much of their time, their faith, their trust and their hope in our campaign. Their belief inspired my staff and me every day. Now is the time to build on this momentum, strengthen campaign friendships new and old, and collaborate on how we can all be equal participants of the American Dream. Thank you to so many of you who joined us on this journey. We will always remember November 4, 2014 as the dawn of a new movement in Tennessee. Our campaign showed what can be accomplished when people of our district work together for the greater good of our neighbors.
