Rutherford County Commissioner Adam Coggin announced today that he will be a candidate in the Republican primary for the Tennessee State House of Representatives in the 48th District. Representative Joe Carr currently holds the 48th District seat. Carr’s previously announced campaign for Congress will leave his district’s seat open.
“As a lifelong resident of Rutherford County, I share the common sense values and conservative principles my friends and neighbors hold dear. I believe strongly in serving and giving back to our community, and I believe that my work on the county commission and in the private sector have given me the depth of experience I will need to represent the 48th District well as our county continues to grow and prosper,” Coggin said.
Currently serving his second term as 15th district county commissioner, Coggin is the chairman of the commission’s steering, legislative, and governmental committee in addition to serving on the property management and ethics committees. His previous service includes the county benefits and insurance committee.
“I want to have a responsible, sincere conversation about how we can continue to enhance the quality of life here in Rutherford County and across the state. We must focus on attracting jobs and on limiting the size of government,” he said.
Coggin serves as director of AdamsPlace Independent Living in Murfreesboro, and he previously served as director of development at Middle Tennessee Christian School. He graduated from Middle Tennessee Christian School, and earned his bachelor’s degree from Lipscomb University.
He is currently a member and previous board member of the Murfreesboro Noon Rotary Club, serves on the Read to Succeed board, and is a previous board member of the Rutherford County Family YMCA.
Coggin and his wife Holly have two children, Slater and McCall, and they are active members of North Boulevard Church of Christ.
