TENNESSEE US HOUSE DISTRICT 3
I pledge unless I am Speaker of the House, I will term limit myself in 8 years.
I pledge I will never vote for a budget that has funding for Planned Parenthood.
I pledge I will never vote for a budget that doesn't cut spending by at least 1% from the previous year.
I pledge I will fight to reign in activist judges through defunding, restructuring, or impeachment that try to legislate from the bench .
I pledge to fight for Constitutional limits to the Federal Government which will protect individual rights, cut regulations, and increase overall prosperity.
Why Run for Congress
People have been asking me, why do you want to run for Congress? The best answer I can give is I am tired of being disappointed. I am tired of casting my vote and no matter who gets elected Planned Parenthood is still being funded, the Federal government is still growing, and our freedoms are still being taken away one by one.
There is a reason Tennessee is called the Volunteer state. It is because when we see a problem we are the first to step up and say I can help fix that. How can I call my self a true Tennesseean and not step up when I feel there is a need?
I also believe it is time for this district to be represented by a citizen legislator. I have worked in retail, manufacturing, warehousing, and now the medical industry. I have been everything from a cashier to a fork lift operator to a supervisor that oversaw 60 employees. I understand what it means to live from paycheck to paycheck. I have experienced having to move away from my home because of the war on coal.
Jeremy Shane Massengale lives in Cleveland, TN with his wife, Molly, of 20 years and their youngest son, Phillip. Their oldest son, Nathan, is currently enrolled at the University of Tennessee.
Jeremy was born in Scott County, TN and lived there until his family had to move out of state due to the coal industries decline in the area. At 18, he moved back to TN to attend Lee University. After starting a family, he left college for a time and began working in logistics. Through hard work and a willingness to gain as much knowledge as possible, Jeremy was able to move from an entry level warehouse worker to an inventory supervisor that oversaw 60 employees.
During the process of becoming a supervisor, Jeremy finished his Bachelors of Science in Business Management from Bryan College. Jeremy now works in the medical industry as a Senior Service Rep. for a large lab in Chattanooga, TN.
Jeremy is not a lawyer or career politician. He is a blue collar worker that knows what it is like to live from paycheck to paycheck. He understands the problems that most Americans face today and wants to fight for everyone impacted by our out of touch Congress in Washington, DC. He believes it is time for citizen legislators to be sent to Congress.
