Tennessee!

Marty Olsen
House - District 1

We are very much a regional economy; in Congress, I’ll advocate for legislation that creates jobs and grows the economy by supporting local businesses and fostering entrepreneurship. Ecotourism represents a significant portion of our existing business and developmental potential, making nature one of the district’s greatest assets. East Tennessee is home to Smoky Mountain National Park and a leg of the Appalachian Trial, attracting thousands of visitors every year. I believe that an investment in the environment is an investment in our economy. If that future is going to happen, something has to change. Half of the households in my district earn $8,000/year less than living wage. Almost 1 in 5 people live in poverty. Over a quarter of them are children. The Tennessee First is at the epicenter of the opioid epidemic. East TN was where 1 in 4 drug overdose deaths occurred in our state in 2016, even though we only represent about 10% of the population.
