WTF Endorsement: Gayle Jordan for State Senate

Gayle JordanGayle Jordan

Gayle Jordan is running for TN State Senate in District 14, which includes the eastern half of Rutherford County and all of Bedford, Marshall, Moore and Lincoln counties. Gayle is a lawyer and a farmer in Rutherford County. She is an advocate for WTF goals such as quality public education, pay equity and strong wages, and expansion of health care access.

Here is Gayle in her own words:

I am in complete support of Insure TN, the bi-partisan plan that assures health care access for our most vulnerable Tennessee residents, thousands of whom are veterans. Our rural hospitals are bearing the burden of the costs of treatment. The cost of Insure TN has already been allocated by the federal government, and the current legislators should be held to task for having refused it. 

I believe that economic development will be a critical issue in the coming months, especially in light of the negative impact of some of the recent regressive legislation (loss of jobs through closings of hospitals, risk of tourist industry impact due to “counselor” legislation, potential loss of businesses coming to TN because of anti-transgender/LGBT policies). This will affect working moms (and dads), and it will be a point of focus for me on the campaign as well.

Voters in District 14 deserve a progressive choice for State Senator, someone who will stand up for the issues Tennesseans care about. Gayle Jordan is that choice.
