TTA honors Rep. Charles Sargent and Sen. Paul Bailey
The Tennessee Telecommunications Association recently honored State Representative Charles Sargent, R-Franklin, as the Tennessee Representative Of The Year in a ceremony at TTA’s Annual Convention.
The TTA also recognized Sen. Paul Bailey, R-Sparta, as State Senator of the Year.
Rep. Sargent and Sen. Bailey were in instrumental in the passage of the telecom tax relief bill that levels the taxation playing field for TTA members.
“Both Sen. Bailey and Rep. Sargent spent significant amounts of time on the bill, making sure it was a good thing for rural Tennesseans,” says TTA Executive Director Levoy Knowles. “This was a very intricate bill and it took superb leadership from these men to get it passed. Tennesseans should be proud to have people like Sen. Bailey and Rep Sargent representing them in Nashville.”
