The Moore County GOP organization will host Huntland native Jack Daniel at its July monthly meeting, scheduled for Tuesday, July 29 in the lower level of the County Building.
Daniel, who is running in the Republican primary against incumbent David Alexander (R-Winchester) for the 39th District State Representative seat, will be the guest speaker. The meeting begins at 7 p.m.
Daniel is making his third bid for the state House of Representatives in District 39.
He was the GOP nominee in 2002, losing to then-Rep. George Fraley (D-Winchester) in the general election. Fraley was defeated by Alexander in 2010. Daniel sought the Republican nomination in 2004, losing in the primary to Bill Green, who, in turn, lost to Fraley in the general election.
District 39 encompasses Moore and parts of Franklin and Marion counties. Daniel and his wife Debbi have five children and still reside in Huntland where they are lifelong residents.
Daniel is a Huntland High School and Middle Tennessee State University graduate.
While he graduated with a B.S. Degree in Chemistry, Daniel was commissioned as a Second Lieutenant in the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers where he served for 28 years rising to the rank of Lieutenant Colonel.
He later worked as an engineer in the aerospace/defense industry, developing integrated systems for the Skylab program.
Daniel later worked in the automobile parts manufacturing industry, chemical industry, nuclear power industry, and returned to the aerospace/defense industry where he served as a Quality Assurance Director.
