Senator Bob Corker

I moved to Chattanooga in 2008 and have gradually been involved in our community, both personally and professionally.  My professional work and some of my passions have exposed me to the inner workings of our state and national government at a very high level.  

I have had the privilege of working closely with Senator Corker and his staff. They have been pleasant to work with and have always been accessible and willing to help. They have exercised traits of what public service should be and look like - honesty and integrity. They have served our community, state and nation with dignity. 

Senator Corker’s hard work, leadership and impact will be felt for years to come. Our sincere gratitude for his service and dedication to Chattanooga, our state and our country.
