August 12, 2019

This past week, I visited Middle Tennessee, and received updates from local businessmen, health care professionals, and local officials who are tuned in to the region’s many successes, and emerging opportunities for growth.

Tennessee’s strong workforce, right-to-work law, and central location make companies eager to set up shop.
