Rep. Jon Lundberg (R-Bristol) has been endorsed by the Tennessee Employees Action Movement (TEAM), the political action group of the Tennessee State Employees Association. 

The organization, which advocates for lawmakers on both sides of the aisle, endorses candidates based on a select range of criteria. These include an overview of a candidate’s governing principles gained through interviews with TEAM representatives, voting record on TEAM-related issues, level of accessibility, and how well a candidate listens to employee concerns.

“It takes a lot of work to keep a state functioning properly, providing the services we all depend on, and most of that effort goes unseen,” Lundberg says. “I’m honored to help serve as a voice for those employees who maintain the day-to-day business of keeping Tennessee strong.”

Early voting is ongoing. The primary election for the Tennessee Senate will take place on Aug. 4, 2016, and the general election is set for Nov. 8, 2016.
