Lori Love, candidate for the Tennessee State House District 3, will be the special guest of the Carter County Democratic Women’s Club at their monthly meeting on Tuesday, May 23. Ms. Love will be on the ballot in the Special Election on August 3 to fill the vacant District 3 seat. This district comprises all of Johnson County, the Roan Mountain and Hampton areas of Carter County, an east-west strip of Sullivan County, and the eastern portion of Hawkins County.
After Lori traveled around the world with her husband Arvil during his 22-year career in the Air Force, the Loves decided to return to his roots and move to Northeast Tennessee, where they have lived in Sullivan County for 27 years. She has been active in the Democratic Party for ten years, and since 2014 she has served as an elected member of the Tennessee Democratic Party as an Executive Committeewoman representing State Senate District 4. She is a fount of information on Tennessee politics and a veteran of many local, state, and national political campaigns.
Previously Ms. Love worked for Human Resources for Fingerhut and as Office Manager for the Johnson City Symphony Orchestra, and working with the former conductor, she helped form a nonprofit that gave music programs to local school children. A huge advocate for farmers markets, she served as treasurer of the Johnson City Farmers Market for five years and is currently treasurer of the Blountville Farmers Market. Her other volunteer activities are with the Upper East Tennessee Central Labor Council and the Blountville Historical Preservation Association.
Love emphasizes the value of the two-party system and the importance of the Democratic Party in Tennessee: “I am running in the upcoming special election for the TN House D-3 position because the current super majority in the Tennessee Legislature seems to feel they have to answer to no one. The recent actions of the representative in this seat bring to mind a lack of ethics and morals. The super majority continues to pass legislation that they know is unconstitutional. They no longer care about the citizens in Tennessee. It is time to bring back ‘for the people’ to Tennessee. That means ALL the people!”
The Women’s Club meeting begins at 6 pm, at the Black Olive, 173 Hudson Dr., Elizabethton. Those who want to order dinner are urged to come early between 5:15 and 5:30. For further information, contact
