“I’ve been a conservative all my life and pretty much Republican most of my life. I have decided that the Tennessee legislature has abandoned the middle class and the working poor,” Kawula said.

“It’s been a tremendous honor and a tremendous amount of work and responsibility to serve the last two terms, we’ve done a lot of good things, a lot of good work and there’s still a lot of work to be done,” Timothy Hill said.

Hill was recently selected as the House Majority Whip. Hill said his top priorities as a representative are protecting the 2nd amendment and repealing grocery tax.
