WTF is proud to endorse Juanita Charles

Meet Juanita Charles

🚨 [Endorsement Alert – Special Election] 🚨

WTF is proud to endorse Juanita Charles in the Special Election for Senate District 22, in Houston, Montgomery and Stewart counties.

Juanita will work hard to improve the lives of working families in Tennessee by focusing her efforts on expanding Medicaid, improving infrastructure and ensuring our children have access to good, quality public education.

In 2018, Tennessee elected three black women in the same year to the State Senate for the first time in our state’s history. Let’s make history one more time and send Juanita Charles to join them in the Senate!

Special elections present unique opportunities for Democrats to pick-up seats because of lower voter turnout and their unpredictability.

Her General Election Day is April 23, 2019.

Tennessee women talk about need for political participation, more female representation

Chattanooga Times Free Press, February 9, 2019

The 2018 midterm elections were dubbed by some “The Second Year of the Woman” as elected offices across the country saw an increase in women in their seats.

On the federal level, there was a 4 percent increase in female representation, but despite electing its first female senator, Tennessee still lags behind other states.

Women here remain vastly underrepresented in political offices.

WTF is proud to endorse Mayor Kim McMillan

Meet Mayor Kim McMillan

Mayor Kim McMillan is in a 4-way, non-partisan race in her re-election campaign for Mayor of Clarksville.  Mayor McMillan has served two 4 year terms as Mayor and will be term-limited after 3 consecutive 4 year terms.  She was the first female elected Mayor of any Tennessee city with a population in excess of 100,000. Before being elected Mayor, Kim served in the Tennessee General Assembly for 12 years.  While serving, Kim was elected as Majority Leader of the Tennessee House of Representatives, the first woman to serve in this position in either Chamber of the General Assembly. Kim went on to serve in Governor Phil Bredesen’s cabinet as Senior Policy Advisor.

Mayor McMillan believes in the people of Clarksville, the incredible economic opportunities that have been generated under her leadership and the exceptional quality of life in Clarksville.  If elected for a third term, Mayor McMillan will continue push for projects like the Clarksville Family Athletic Complex, the Clarksville Downtown Performing Arts Center and improved infrastructure and transportation systems.  This goes hand in hand with providing our law enforcement with the tools they need to keep Clarksville safe. Kim believes that her main campaign issue is to continue to make Clarksville the best city in America to live, work and raise our families.

Her General Election Day is November 6, 2018.
