Robin Smith Will Be In Knoxville With Business Leaders

Area Business leaders will meet and greet with Third District Congressional candidate Robin Smith in a breakfast gathering on Thursday February 4, 2010 at 7:45 a.m. at Fox Den Country Club in Farragut, TN. Smith is the only candidate that has spent any time in Oak Ridge and East TN. In her time here she has spent a considerable amount of time in understanding the value and importance of the economic engine of Y12 and the Oak Ridge National Lab. Smith understands technology and nuclear industry and what it can mean to our ongoing future regional economic growth. Smith is seeking to replace Third District Congressman Zach Wamp, who is running for the Republican nomination for Governor of Tennessee. Wamp's shoes will be very hard to fill as he utilized his role as an appropriator of federal funds for the continual operation and expansion of Y12 and the lab. It is critical that the district replace Wamp with someone equally as capable to handle the job. Smith is that candidate.
