Re-Elect Tom Leatherwood

Someone we can trust to get the job done

"Tom has been a strong conservative fighter for the people of Shelby County, and we need strong conservatives like him in the legislature. Tom exemplifies the best qualities of a public servant and has been an effective advocate for fiscal responsibility, our education system, and safety in our communities. I'm proud to endorse Tom for re-election."
Gov. Bill Lee
