Charlton Johnson endorses David Weatherspoon for TN Senate, District 31


It is vital that we vote our values, so I’ll be voting David Weatherspoon for State Senate District 31. I met David in September 2016 while serving as chaplain resident at Methodist Le Bonheur Hospital. I have consistently found him to be compassionate, caring and committed to building relationships regardless of race, creed or status.

David is an effective advocate for education, social justice, voting rights, acceptance, economic opportunity and gender & race equality. He can hit the ground running on day one of his term. I met David as a colleague and found him to be a man of integrity who has a vision that includes every one of us and will serve as a dynamic voice for our children and community.

I especially appreciate David’s thoughtful leadership. He seeks out new ideas and different perspectives, weighs the alternatives, considers possible outcomes and develops reasonable positions to find solutions to tough problems. David is approachable and engaged, and genuinely committed to governing well. I invite you to join me in voting for David Weatherspoon, a young man with vision and values to be our voice as State Senator for District 31.
