“I was born and raised in Bellevue, raised my family here, and have experienced the growth of this community. I’m excited about the challenge ahead, but I understand they’re a lot of our neighbors still struggling financially right now. I’m ready to roll up my sleeves and do my part to create a better workforce environment for the next generation,” Brewer said.

“Tennessee deserves representatives who will put the interests of the people first, and push partisan politics to the back burner.
