MURFREESBORO, TN, – Senator Shane Reeves hosted his Inaugural Faith, Family and Freedom Luncheon. His guest was Tennessee Governor -Elect Bill Lee Wednesday December 5th at The Grove at Williamson Place at 3250 Wilkinson Pike in Murfreesboro.
“We are very excited to host this event,” said Senator Reeves. “We are particularly honored that Governor-elect Lee joined us and for the opportunity to hear some of his thoughts as he prepares to take the helm of state government about how we can make Tennessee an even better state to work, live and raise a family.”
There were over 200 guests who joined Reeves as Governor-Elect Bill Lee spoke of his passion for helping others. Lee spoke about the importance of vocational training and helping those who have battled addiction, the incarcerated and helping them become productive citizens.
Marvin Williamson, a recent TSU graduate who will attend law school in the fall said, “I have been impressed with both Shane Reeves and Bill Lee. I admire both of their compassion and conviction for helping the least fortunate, especially in the areas of drug addiction and the incarcerated. I think both of these men are someone who want to teach a man to fish,rather than just giving him a fish. He has been involved in these important issues for many years, not just at election time.”
“I first met Bill Lee at our Smyrna Rotary Club about 10 years ago with the late Smyrna Mayor Bob Spivey. Lee’s sincerity and conviction is greatly appreicated. I often mention the word disconnect that unfortunately exist in government, well I think the governor-elect will certainly help connect those dots, whether its someone who desires a vocational skill, get help with addiction, find a job, reduce recidivism, improve our transportation infrastucture, seek solutions to our health care system and more,” said Representative Mike Sparks of Smyrna.
