Anne Ferrell Quillen is the President of the recently formed and awesome TNDP rural caucus. Although rural areas are represented by elected officials, they don’t seem to have us in mind when they vote with the GOP supermajority. Expanding Medicaid for rural hospitals, funding for public schools and infrastructure, and developing economic opportunities for our businesses, communities and way of life are all essential issues for rural Tennessee. We do make up 93% of the state. Let’s elect some homegrown candidates to make some change.
President of TNDP's Rural Caucus, Anne Quillen, joins to talk about how we should elevate the needs of rural TN instead of maligning the people who live there.
