STATEMENT FROM HOUSE DEMOCRATIC LEADER CRAIG FITZHUGH ON THE RETIREMENT OF STATE SENATOR THELMA HARPER
Simply put, Senator Thelma Harper is one of the giants of the State Legislature. For more than 25 years she has served as the conscience of the Senate, fighting tirelessly for families, children and the working people of Tennessee. She has provided a voice for the voiceless and those who felt disconnected from state government with compassion and more than a little style. I’m proud of her accomplishments, but even more proud of our enduring friendship throughout the years. I wish her well and congratulate her on a job well done.
