David Alexander recently announced his bid for re-election as State Representative, District 39, which includes Moore County.
He and his wife own Reliable Rental, a construction equipment, homeowner equipment, and special event rental store in Winchester.
He is an elder at Winchester Cumberland Presbyterian Church, member of the Winchester Downtown Program Corporation, Lions Club and life-time member of the NRA.
Representative Alexander intends to run on his conservative record over the last two years.
“We cut over a billion dollars to the state budget, did not raise taxes, and still passed a balanced budget, making state government smaller, leaner, and more efficient,” said Alexander in a press release.
“By government being smaller and not needing as much tax money, we began to return that tax money back to Tennesseans pockets by eliminating the gift tax, the death tax, and beginning to reduce our high grocery tax.”
Representative Alexander personally carried the Grocery Tax Reduction Bill to Governor Haslam.
“We focused on jobs and employment, helping to move Tennessee’s unemployment rate from 9.6 percent in November 2010 to 8.4 percent currently, by reducing red tape, cutting dozens of duplicative boards, reworking FAST TRAK business grants, passing the Small Business Incentive Act, bringing new industry to the state, and passing a work search requirement for those receiving unemployment benefits.
“I ask for your support to continue this conservative agenda,” he said.•
