February Luncheon | Congressman John Rose (R-TN)
Please note, this event has expired.
The February luncheon guest speaker is Congressman John Rose.
John Rose grew up in Cookeville, Tennessee in Putnam County and is a lifelong resident of Tennessee’s Sixth Congressional District. John graduated from Tennessee Technological University in Cookeville with a bachelor’s degree in agribusiness economics. He went on to complete his Master of Science in agricultural economics at Purdue University and his Juris Doctorate at Vanderbilt University. In 2002 at the age of 37, Rose was appointed Commissioner of Agriculture for the State of Tennessee, and has chaired the Tennessee State Fair Association since 2010 John and his wife Chelsea have always been active in their community and enthusiastic supporters of Future Farmers of America, the Tennessee State Fair, and Tennessee Technological University. Having long been involved in trying to make his community and state a better place in which to live, raise families, and prosper, John has often been disturbed by the disparity between politicians’ promises and the actual outcomes for our state and country. This concern led him to successfully run for Congress in 2018, winning the general election by 70% of the vote. His deep desire to fight for the next generation of farmers, entrepreneurs, and all young Americans is his constant inspiration, and he believes if Tennessee values are applied in Washington we can truly build a better future for the nation.
As a first term Member of Congress, he looks forward to fighting for expanded rural broadband access and better infrastructure to create more and better jobs and a higher quality of life for everyday Tennesseans throughout the Sixth District. He also believes we must secure our borders, stand for life, support men and women in uniform, preserve the Second Amendment, and solve the crisis that is our national debt. With his Christian faith as his cornerstone, John is passionate about putting Tennessee values to work in Washington. He and his wife Chelsea continue to live in Cookeville with their son Guy.
