KNOXVILLE, TN – Seema Singh today formally announced her candidacy for Tennessee State House District 90. Singh, currently serving her second term as a member of Knoxville’s City Council, said she felt called to bring her skills and experience to Tennessee’s state legislature after seeing the angry divisiveness that has marked our state’s government in recent years at a time when Tennesseans tell her they feel unheard and like their votes don’t matter.
“Despite the dysfunction in Nashville, I know we can, must, and will make a difference in the General Assembly,” said Singh, “I know how to work toward common ground while holding my ground.”
Singh plans to focus on issues that matter most to constituents both in her own district and across the Volunteer State, including keeping our children safe, helping to make sure Tennesseans have access to quality health care, fully funding our public schools, and working to make sure that our state attracts good jobs with good benefits.
“I’m running to listen to our communities and represent what Tennesseans actually want. I will be a spark for sanity in Nashville,” said Singh. “I hope that voters will support me so that I can take my proven skills in collaboration and cooperation to our State House.”
Seema Singh’s official campaign kickoff event will take place on Nov. 15 from 6-8 pm at Fanatic Brewery, located at 2735 N. Central Street in Knoxville, and will be open to both the public and the media.
