Rep. Stacey Campfield to seek 7th State Senatorial District
(Knoxville , TN , August 7,2009) -- State Representative Stacey Campfield (R-Knoxville) announced today that he will seek the 7th senatorial district being vacated by retiring State Senator Tim Burchett. "Tim has been a vocal leader in the state for Knox county as the delegation chairman. I think I can make a smooth transition into that role having served for years as the delegations vice chairman." Campfield said. The 7th senatorial district covers most of North East and West Knox county.
"It has been a privilege to serve the people in District 18 and I have been able to make some great friends,” "I look forward to meeting and hearing the concerns of folks all across the 7th District."said Rep. Campfield.
Campfield added, “My priority continues to be devoting much time to getting input from our citizens by personally visiting with them at their doorstep, sending out questionnaires, hosting listening tours and forums, guest hosting on talk radio and TV call in shows and other means of communication like my blog."
"Listening to people now, most people are concerned with the explosive growth in government taking place, I'm hearing concerns from many citizens that massive spending and government control programs threaten the way of life and freedoms they have loved and hope to pass on. "
"Heightened fear over possible new taxation, increased regulation or economic possibilities such as hyper-inflation is causing more Tennesseans to demand more engagement from their State Representatives and more action from their state. Now is a time when we must have bold leadership from proven conservatives,"
"Someone who will not just talk conservative at election time but someone who has a proven record of fighting for those values in Nashville." said Rep. Campfield.
Efforts by Campfield have been in support of property rights, 2nd amendment rights, pro-life legislation, low taxes, fiscal restraint, government accountability, and free market solutions.
Campfield consistently receives the highest conservative ratings from the Tennessee Conservative Union, Tennessee Right to Life, the NRA and the National Federation of Independent Businesses.
Campfield was first elected to the Tennessee General Assembly in 2004.
He was appointed as Chairman of the State and Local Subcommittee of the Government Operations Committee as well as a member of Consumer and Employee Affairs and the Children and Family Affairs Committee in the House of Representatives.
