Timothy Lee Announces Intent to Seek District 55 House Seat

Tim Lee
West Meade resident Timothy Lee today announces his candidacy for the State House District 55 position on the November 2nd ballot. Lee, a paramedic for HCA at Southern Hills Hospital, is running against entrenched career politician, Gary Odom.

“As an elected official, I will listen to my constituents to make the very best decisions for our neighborhoods, city and state,” Lee said. “Residents in the district will find me accessible, diligent and active for the issues important to our community.”

“I will be honest and forthcoming when it comes to casting votes for the people. For so long voters are told one thing and then when the doors close our representative votes different. Then they insult us and deny they voted against the voters.”

“Tennessee is undergoing tremendous change and these changes are not good for Tennessee. Above all, I will work closely with all residents so that we can make the reasonable and responsible decisions about these changes so we may survive and grow.”

Lee ran for Nashville’s Metro Council in a special election in 2006 and was endorsed by MNEA-PACE, Nashville Firefighters & Fire Service Employees Association Local 140, FOP Andrew Jackson Lodge No. 5, Nashville Business Coalition and the Nashville City Paper. He was supported by conservatives and liberals alike, indicative of his personal ability to unite opposing sides. Losing by only 152 votes, the amount of support he garnered is a true indicator that he is a viable candidate for West Nashville.

A Nashville native, Lee is a 1988 graduate of Fred J. Page High School in Franklin and gained his EMT certification from Middle Tennessee State University in 2000 and paramedic certification from Columbia State Community College. He graduated from Tennessee State University with a Bachelor of Science in Political Science and an emphasis in Pre-law. His medical response experience includes Dickson County EMS and Sumner County EMS.

Lee is married to Kate S. Lee and the couple has three children, Peyton, 12, Aidan and Rowan Lee, age 2 years old. The Lees live on Harriswood Dr. in West Meade. Learn more on issues as the race progresses at<>
