With the outbreak of COVID-19, I wanted to update you on what my campaign has been doing in response to this crisis.
Over a week ago, I announced that my campaign would be postponing all events — including numerous fundraisers, canvasses, and voter registration events — and encouraged everyone to stay home to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. Click here to view my full statement.
I also announced that my campaign was redirecting all resources to meeting the need in our community. Since then, we’ve made thousands of wellness check phone calls to our district, hundreds of check-in text messages, promoted local businesses, helped deliver meals to the elderly with Mobile Meals (check out the photo below of me and my staff practicing social distancing), and more.
I have also continued to pay our entire staff throughout this crisis and moved all campaign operations online. We even added a new employee to the campaign who wants to be sure you wash your paws.
Rest assured — we are doing everything within our power to combat the spread of this virus. It is my hope that other leaders in Tennessee will do the same.
In the meantime, please be sure to stay home, wash your hands, and follow the guidelines set out by the CDC. Stay tuned for continued updates and be sure to check out the links to the left.
My thoughts with you,
Are you interested in helping our campaign address the need in our community?
Do you or your family have a need that my campaign can help address?
Last week, Congressman Burchett voted “NO” on the bipartisan bill to combat the coronavirus.
