Governor Bill Lee visited Smith County on Monday, November 7, as part of his “Tennessee Works” campaign bus tour.
Lee was joined on the tour by Lt. Governor Randy McNally and Speaker of the House Cameron Sexton. Congressman John Rose, State Representative Michael Hale, Smith County Mayor Jeff Mason, and several other local elected officials were in attendance. Nearly 100 supporters and guests were present.
State Representative Michael Hale said, “It was huge for the 40th District to have the Governor and Speaker of the House to stop in for a visit on their bus tour, along with Congressman John Rose. Of all the places they could have chosen, they selected the 40th District as one of their stops. I think that speaks volume for our communities and that great things are ahead for our District. We were honored to have them in Gordonsville.”
Mayor Jeff Mason commented that, “We are extremely proud and honored to have the Governor’s bus tour make a stop in Smith County. Smith County is blessed to have a set of state and federal representatives that align with our Smith County values and represent them in their current offices. It truly does matter in these current times that we live that we continue to elect good Godly, conservative, small government leaders.”
This was the second time Governor Lee visited Smith County in 2022.
