Tennessee's 1st District
Chris is a military veteran who was born in Johnson City and raised all over the country. He joined the United States Air Force in 2008 and served his country faithfully until 2014 when he received an honorable discharge.
Following his discharge from the Air Force, Chris started college full time. He graduated from Lewis University in Illinois with a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer/Information Systems and Information Security.
Chris moved back to Tennessee to be near his family. He was inspired to run for office following a surprise visit home and finding his father in very poor health. His father, while unable to afford the treatment he would need, continued to work to support his mother and to avoid losing their home.
Chris wants to make healthcare for everyone a reality.
Chris will work to reduce or eliminate exorbitant costs of college education for the average student today.
Chris is a gun owner and a strong advocate of gun rights. He also supports expanding background checks to private sales and other measures to effectively reduce gun violence.
Chris is a strong supporter of women's rights.
He plans to run a straightforward campaign and does not intend to accept any political donations from large corporations who would seek to benefit from influencing his vote on a particular issue.
He asks everyone who believes Donald Trump and his followers on Capitol Hill are leading the country away from the American dream to chip in any donation amount to help fund the campaign. He also asks for constituents to provide direct feedback on what issues are important to them so he can represent the district better than current leadership.
