Rep. David Kustoff (R-8th District) visited in West Tennessee last week, including welcoming Vice President Mike Pence to Memphis.
On Tuesday, Jan. 21, he attended the Weakley County Commission meeting in Dresden with Andy Holt to present Beth Worley VanCleave with a flag in honor of her late husband, Roger VanCleave.
Kustoff said, “Commissioner VanCleave was a great man who dedicated his life to serving our country and Weakley County.”
Kustoff also spoke at Leadership Collierville’s Government Day on Jan. 22 and discussed the importance of efficient and ethical governance at all levels.
He also visited Burks Beverage in Dyer County.
“Burks Beverage has been a family run business that has distributed Pepsi products since 1931,” he said. “It was great to sit down with Eddie Burks and discuss how the current economy under President Trump has helped the future of this business.”
He added, “I appreciated sitting down with Dyer County Mayor Chris Young and former Alderman Bob Kirk. It was great to learn how I can continue to best represent Dyer County up in Washington.”
Kustoff also stopped by Wilder LP Gas Company to discuss energy and propane issues in West Tennessee and how to ensure residents are receiving their service effectively and efficiently.
On Thursday, Jan. 23, he visited TLM Associates in downtown Jackson and spoke with President Randy McKinnon about business and the economy.
He also caught up with constituents at the Jackson Chamber for their Elected Officials Appreciation Dinner.
Bartlett City Schools’ Superintendent Dr. David Stephens gave Kustoff and Mayor Keith McDonald a tour of the recent and ongoing renovations at Bartlett High School.
Kustoff said, “These impressive new facilities will give students the proper tools and opportunities to prepare them for a brighter future.”
He continued, “I wrapped up my week with a stop to the Bartlett Police Department to greet new Police Chief Cox. I appreciate our visit and I look forward to working closely with you.”
