“I am so thankful for my volunteers and supporters throughout my entire campaign,” Lovell posted online. “If it weren’t for your time and support, I would not have won the election for State Representative of District 95. I am honored to represent Collierville, Germantown, Fisherville and Eads. Now, it is time to go to Nashville in January and make a change.”

“Before that time comes, I want to welcome you to reach out to me with issues and/or topics that you feel should be addressed, so that I can start working on them now. My goal is to make District 95 a better place for all of us. Your opinions and recommendations matter to me. I now represent you, District 95, so please contact me with any issues that you feel should be addressed.”

“I’m not a career politician,” Lovell said. “I’m a successful businessman who started and operates the second largest fair in the state of Tennessee, the Delta Fair. I own the finest public golf course in the Mid-South, Stonebridge and several other business. I don’t live in a rent free apartment in Nashville owned by a lobbyist.”

“I will not be persuaded by financial gain from PACs or lobbyist and whenever truth is compromised I will stand for truth. Our country, our state and our community need values, common sense conservative ideas not career self serving politicians. I believe that with my values, great ideas and work ethics I can help make this a better place.”
