Congressional Candidate Opens Cookeville Office

Diane Black, congressional candidate for the 6th district, gathered with a crowd of supporters Tuesday afternoon for the opening of her Cookeville campaign office.

“Every campaign I have been a part of has been grassroots, and I am thrilled to open the office in Cookeville today,” said Black. “From this office, volunteers and supporters will work to make sure that all of our Republican candidates are elected in November, from Mayor Haslam on down.”

Among the assembled supporters were Bobby and Jean Davis, Black’s Campaign Co-Chairmen for Putnam County.

“Having served the citizens of Cookeville for several years, I know that Diane shares our conservative values,” said Bobby Davis, former mayor of Cookeville. “Like so many of us in Cookeville and the surrounding area, she has some serious concerns with how things have been operating in Washington, and I believe she has the right ideas on how to get Washington back on track.”

“Diane is a good friend, and the opening of this office exhibits her commitment to this community and to voters all across the 6th district,” said Jean Davis, former mayor and council-member in Cookeville. “I am proud to join her and her supporters here today.”

The Cookeville office will serve to coordinate volunteer activity and campaign outreach in Clay, De Kalb, Jackson, Overton, Putnam and Smith Counties. The office is located at 921 D South Willow Ave., in Cookeville.
