Hospitals and Quality Health Care facilities must remain in a reasonable distance from Rural Tennesseans. Expanding Medicaid ensures that small rural hospitals remain open for Tennesseans across the state.
Quality public education changes lives. We must invest in our public schools by raising educators’ salaries, rebuilding rural schools, and providing our children with the education they deserve.
Rural Tennesseans deserve the opportunity to work in their communities at jobs which allow them to support themselves and their families. Small businesses, the backbone of rural Tennessee, should receive the same incentives for growth as those given to corporations and industries.
Expanding Broadband brings benefits to all Tennesseans, from Memphis to Mountain City. For rural Tennessee, those benefits mean economic opportunity and enhanced educational resources.
At my core—indeed, at the core of all the rural people I meet and love—is a desire, more than anything, to have our country work for everyone, not just for a few people at the top. - Jane Kleeb
We’re working together with Democrats throughout Tennessee to identify rural values and issues, solutions (including legislative), and viable candidates to help achieve those solutions.
Your voice will be amplified by working with other Democrats to bring attention to rural problems — no matter if they apply to one county or 60 counties.
What happens to one of us happens to all of us.More about our rural caucus → about We’re Rural Democrats
