The Terry Frank for Anderson County Mayor Campaign began running what they hope will be many of her first 60 second campaign ad this week. It can be viewed at
Frank, a long-time conservative voice in local politics, is also going full throttle forward by opening her campaign headquarters at 301 Oak Ridge Turnpike on Saturday, June 9 from 11 a.m until 3 p.m.
“It’s a new day in Anderson County. Together, we can put the past behind us and move Anderson County forward with common sense, business-minded leadership that brings new jobs and opportunities to our community, increases fiscal responsibility, and creates honest, open, effective government that puts people ahead of personal gain. People come first. That’s my commitment to you and Anderson County’s future,” said Frank.
The daughter of a coal miner, Terry Frank was born, raised and educated in Anderson County. Terry is a proud wife and mother of three sons who is committed to protecting the quality of life, strengthening the economy, and restoring the public’s trust in Anderson County government.
Terry is the co-owner and operator of Nature’s Marketplace in Oak Ridge, a local eatery in business for nearly 20 years. Terry will bring that proven experience to the county government.
Terry is a local job creator who knows bringing more jobs and opportunities to Anderson County and supporting the growth of small businesses, cutting burdensome regulations that stand in the path of job creators, and creating an environment that increases the county’s competitive edge, is a plan that will work for everyone.
Terry believes in lower taxes, less spending, and smaller government to protect taxpayers and ensure the citizens don’t pay the price for the county’s poor planning.
Terry understands Anderson County residents can’t afford higher taxes. Terry believes the county was wrong to raise taxes last year and is committed to vetoing any future proposed tax increase.
Terry will lead by example and set the tone for county government run with honesty and integrity.
