NASHVILLE DUers! My new Democratic state House member needs your help!

I live in Knoxville. We're one of the ONLY... actually, I think we are the only... community to send a NEW Democrat to the state House.

She needs digs. She's a teacher. She teaches the hard-to-reach kids (the alternative school). She makes practically nothing.

Does anyone have a room. A clean place for her?

Wanna turn Tennessee some purple instead of claiming we should cede? HELP.

Look, I've been on the phone with my NEW REP (I'm so proud) for hours and hours and hours over time. I'm not kidding here.

Any ideas? Please post here to tell me you've IMed.

1. Not to be stupid but where does she live now and where does she need to live once her term starts?

3. GREAT to hear that you have her,

and sorry I can't help, as I live in MD, and you're the only person I know in TN.

CONGRATS to y'all!

4. It's a small victory. The Rethugs tried to gerrymander my district.

Didn't work. Heh!

5. Have you thought of contacting Bill Freeman,

of Freeman-Webb? He is a real estate magnate, former TN Democratic Party treasurer, and major Democratic donor/bundler on a national scale. I'm sure he is glad that she was elected and I'd bet he would have some ideas on where she could live.
