Mark says, “I believe it’s time for us to choose Main Street over Wall Street. The people of Tennessee-Democrats, Independents and Republicans alike-want and deserve an economy that is stable and that works for everyone. I would be honored to serve the state of Tennessee and provide the leadership not only needed today, but for a better future.”
