KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — State House candidate Gary Loe says he’s the candidate for business, but he forgets to mention those businesses are headquartered in other states. Last week Loe officially took a position on an issue by voicing his opposition to a popular job-creating idea that rewards responsible Tennessee business owners.
“Gary Loe has shown he’ll do exactly as he’s told by his party bosses, like campaign adviser Stacey Campfield, even if he has to stand against jobs for our families,” said Chip Forrester, chairman of the Tennessee Democratic Party. “Tennessee First is a common sense reform that would reward responsible and competitive Tennessee business owners and use our tax dollars to create good-paying jobs right here.”
Veteran school teacher Gloria Johnson, Loe’s opponent, supports Tennessee First — a law that would give Tennessee-based companies the first crack at competitive state contracts. Loe said he opposed the measure that rewards companies for creating jobs with our tax dollars.
“Gary Loe doesn’t know how to get Tennesseans working again, but he knows how to keep them out of work,” said Forrester. “Tennesseans who are looking for good jobs that pay a good wage and business owners who are looking for work should look for a candidate other than Gary Loe. Just like his party bosses, he’s already said responsible, competitive Tennessee business owners aren’t worth his consideration.
“Voters should return the favor,” Forrester said.
