CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -
After her unsuccessful race against U.S. Rep. Scott DesJarlais earlier this month, Democrat Lenda Sherrell says she considering to run for the open chair position of Tennessee's Democratic Party.
“Like so many across Tennessee, I see it as my duty and responsibility to help our community; that did not come to an end on November 4th. All across this great state, there are people who are looking for ways to improve the lives of working families, seniors and youth. That is the spirit that fueled our campaign and that is the momentum that inspired me to consider stepping up to a post where I can continue build on what we accomplished during our race,” said Sherrell in a news release.
Before running for Congress, Sherrell was a certified public accountant who built a 25-year career in the private sector as an auditor and controller for educational and health care institutions. She and her husband, Dr. Jim Sherrell, live in Monteagle and have two children and four grandchildren.
