Terri Lynn Weaver TN State Rep.
Greetings to you, the Fabulous Folks of the Fortieth District!

Well, life is rockin' and rollin' and hard to believe that early voting time is here.  I pray you are prepared to enter the voting booth, for it is our moral obligation and a right best exercised by folks who have taken the time to learn and know about the decisions that would strengthen and prosper our nation and our state.  "The most promising method of securing a virtuous and morally stable people is to elect virtuous leaders," (excerpt found in the "28 Principles of Liberty").

It was another full weekend--knocking on doors, making phone calls, and seeing as many folks as I can to encourage all to GO VOTE!  Speaking to an audience of supporters last Monday night, I challenged them to "CARE LIKE CRAZY," and get to the polls and take some folks with them!  Not only did I ask for their continued confidence to represent them, but also emphasized the importance of the  Constitutional Amendments on the ballot, one of which is Yes on 1.  Tennessee has the fewest abortion restrictions, making us the abortion destination 'hot spot' in the southeast.  Wouldn't you agree that explaining medical surgical procedures and requiring hospitalization for riskier late-term abortions would be common sense policies going forward?  Our bordering states have such policies in place.  Talk about War on Women!  Animal clinics have higher regulation and inspection standards in order to be open for business than some of these abortion clinics currently in our state.  Passage of Amendment 1 WILL NOT prevent anyone from choice to abort or not to abort; but it will provide safe procedures and conditions for the patient and the staff. It is the right thing to do. Yes on 1 is a 14-year journey that began with unelected judges (do not get me started on that topic)!

Tennessee remains business-friendly and low tax base in order to attract business that will provide jobs.  Proof is in the puddin'.  Over the summer and just in recent  weeks, numerous new manufacturing facilities have either relocated here or are expanding their business to provide even more job opportunities.  High-five to the many team-players who make this happen--the Governor, Department of Economic and Community Development, state and local government officials and you--yes YOU!  When I've asked business owners such as Beretta,  or ARC, an automobile airbag manufacturer coming to Trousdale County, "What made you choose Tennessee?"--the reply:   "Why it's because of the people.  They are friendly and very pleasant.  This is where we want to live and raise our families.  This is where we want to work and play."  Kindness has its rewards, and so does having good jobs for Tennesseans who want to work.

Those of you who keep up with the daily picture journals via my Facebook know the many facets of serving and working for  District 40.  Being where YOU are is this rep's mission statement.  For that is the only way I can know the heartbeat of those whom I represent in order to represent rightly, and to get things done.

Honestly, I do not see the pace slowing down anytime soon.  After the election, I have a house to clean and a barn to ready for winter!  Not to mention catch-up time with my two amazing grandsons.  But for now, seek and know Truth, go vote, then "Trust God and DO the next thing," (Oswald Chambers).

P.S.  By golly, if it wasn't for HIS strength, there is just no DOING!

To the Fabulous Folks of the Fortieth District

Greetings and Grace to you.  Now that the primary elections are behind us, may I mention how grateful I am for everyone of you that went to the polls and placed a complimentary vote of confidence for me in the ballot box. Thank you!

Since you elected me in 2008, serving House District 40 is one I take very seriously. Indeed these are the times that “try men souls” so it is vital you have a voice that reflects your concerns and solutions to the issues we face in our great state of Tennessee. You have a representative that mirrors your principles, values and beliefs. I listen to you and see you where you live, work, play and raise your family. Whether being available to you through my Friday Coffee Conversations, community events, at church or at the grocery store I know the district heartbeat of those whom I represent. 

Pressing forward while remaining faithful to our values, such as limited government, living within the means of state budget, protecting our Constitution and traditional family values is paramount to me and keeps me fired up in this call to work for you. Sponsoring legislation that continues to make Tennessee a shining light for other states to see has been my promise and those promises will continue to be kept.

Those of you who know me, know how strongly I believe in teamwork. Every intricate part of the many phases of a campaign involve people such as you, individually gifted, to step up to the plate and do the impossible.  With God and a team there is no mountain that can not be moved. I know this to be true. I have seen the scenario played in 2008, 2010, 2012 and I trust for victory again on November 4, 2014.

Perhaps you would consider hosting a Coffee and Dessert fund-raising home party in your neighborhood inviting folks from your camp. It would be a delight to answer questions and meet eyeball to eyeball with your guests. Your involvement is crucial as we embark into the last phase of this general election cycle. Your financial giving allows me to buy the gasoline, signs and mailers (which will be few) needed to inform the voters the platform of which I stand and the beliefs behind those issues. 

Go to Team Weaver on Facebook to become a Trooper to stay informed and to know how you can help this campaign going forward.

So as the psalmist instructs us in chapter 37:4…. let us trust in the Lord and do good.
