“Today I’m proud to endorse State Rep. Mike Carter in his reelection bid in District 29,” said Mr. Bennett. “I’ve known Mike for many years, from his time as county attorney for the Hamilton County Sheriff’s department, through his years as Sessions Court judge. Mike’s proven himself to be a hard worker who listens to the people of Hamilton County and the 29th District.
“As your state representative, Mike has kept his promises. He was a leader in ending forced annexation in Tennessee, a practice that allowed cities to annex a citizen’s property without permission from the property owner. For his efforts he was named best legislator of the 109th General Assembly and co-legislator of the year by Americans for Prosperity Tennessee.
“He voted to eliminate the Hall Income Tax and to lower taxes for veterans and seniors. He will continue with the efforts he began in 2014 toward making high speed internet available to citizens in his district that currently have no access.
“Mike’s leadership has been critical to the success of Hamilton County and I enthusiastically endorse Rep. Mike Carter for continuing his service as state representative for District 29.”
Early voting is July 15-30 and the general election is Aug. 4.
