More from Stevens campaign:
Stevens, who is running to provide common sense, conservative leadership for the 49th legislative district, has a proven record as an effective advocate for taxpayers and business friendly policies. “Now more than ever, we need a representative who will support job creation and foster strong relationships with local leaders.”
Elected to the Rutherford County Commission in 2010, Stevens has earned a reputation as a solid fiscal conservative. Stevens has opposed tax increases and supported measures to eliminate wasteful spending, while also working to make government more efficient and transparent. “Good government lives within its means and allows the private sector to thrive without excessive regulations,” Stevens added.
Stevens has been a resident of Rutherford County for over twenty-five years and has chosen to locate and grow his small businesses here. “Rutherford County has been so good to my family, and I want to help make it even better. I look forward to serving our community and supporting business-friendly policies that will provide our residents with even more opportunity to grow and prosper.”
