The Richard Garvin Jr. for State Representative Campaign announced its first “Meet the Candidate” event, which will be held from 8-10 a.m. Saturday at Star Medical Group, located at 429 Nissan Drive, Suite 100 in Smyrna.
The campaign will provide the opportunity for Rutherford County citizens of the newly created 37th House District to meet and interact with the candidate. Also, free refreshments will be provided and a media question and answer time will begin at 10 a.m.
“Since announcing my candidacy I’ve met hundreds of people and talked about the future of our county with them – it has been both educational and inspiring – I look forward to meeting more this Saturday,” Garvin said. “It’s always great to hear their concerns, ask questions and discuss solutions we can all work on together.”
A local businessman and educator, Garvin launched his campaign to become the representative in the Tennessee House from the newly created 37th district in Rutherford County earlier this year and has been very pleased with the outpouring of support and encouragement his campaign has received.
As an African American Republican, Garvin seeks to represent the citizens of Rutherford County by bringing fresh ideas, common sense, and conservatism to the Tennessee Capitol.
Garvin has served on the Town of Smyrna’s Planning Commission, currently manages his father’s medical practice and teaches Psychology at Fisk University in Nashville.
“Being a Black Republican is not the norm, but it’s who I am and I trust that the common sense folks of Rutherford County will give me the opportunity to sit and talk with them this Saturday about how we can work together to make our communities safer and more prosperous,”Garvin said.
