The Tennessee Conservative [By Jason Vaughn] –
Conservative East Tennessean Mark Pulliam filed as a write-in yesterday for the District 2 Tennessee Republican Party’s State Executive Committee (SEC) and his name will appear on the ballot on August 4th, 2022.
Pulliam said, “I will be attentive to the grassroots and willing to honestly call balls and strikes.”
The current male SEC committee person chose not to run and no one else filed a petition and/or qualified at yesterday’s deadline.
In each State Senate District, the SEC has two representatives – a male and a female. Incumbent Cindy Hatcher is running for the female seat and has an opponent in Julia Atchley-Pace, who is an incumbent in portion of the district that does not include Blount County.
If Pulliam receives a single vote in August, he will be the new male SEC committee member for District 2.
