(NASHVILLE), January 19, 2019 — Senate Republican Caucus Chairman Ken Yager (R-Kingston) made the following statement in response to Governor Bill Lee’s inaugural speech:

“It was a very inspiring speech and a great day for Tennesseans.  His speech brought the best out of us today, reminding us that we succeed when we are unified.  I was particularly pleased with his commitment to uplift our rural communities and give them more opportunities to succeed.  I also appreciate his attention to vocational, technical and agricultural education and his overall goal to give Tennessee students a world class education.  I look forward to working with him to make Tennessee the best state in the nation to work, live and raise a family.”   (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 01/19/2019-4:45PM-TOP PHOTO:  SENATOR KEN YAGER LAST SUMMER IN LA FOLLETTE)
