Meet Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey Thursday

RON RAMSEY wants a promotion from Lt. Governor to Governor. He engineered the Republican takeover of the State Senate. He's the National Chairman of the Lt. Governor's Association. And he's our neighbor - a lifelong resident of Blountville.
Ron Ramsey was instrumental in the election of our own Mike Faulk to the State Senate. He made Faulk the Chairman of the powerful Senate Calendar Committee in his first year in the General Assembly.
Come meet and greet the Lt. Governor in Rogersville on Thursday, September 24, 2009 at 6pm at Hawkins Elementary School. This is a location change from the previous venue of Price Public School.
Ron Ramsey currently holds the second highest position in State government. If he wins the GOP primary next August, he will likely become Governor. If he doesn't, he'll still be Lt. Governor and very, very important to the future of Hawkins County.
