(NASHVILLE) – Joined by his family, State Senator Shane Reeves (R-Murfreesboro) today took the oath of office, beginning his tenure representing Tennessee’s 14th Senatorial District. The oath was administered in the Senate Chamber by Judge Don Ash as state senators met in a Thursday morning floor session.
“I’m incredibly honored and humbled to serve the people of the 14th district and excited about this new opportunity,” said Senator Reeves. “I will work very hard to honor the oath that I have taken today as I fulfill the duties of serving as their voice in Nashville. I look forward to working with Governor Haslam and my colleagues to improve opportunities for Tennesseans.”
The 14th Senatorial District includes Bedford, Lincoln, Marshall, and Moore Counties and part of Rutherford County.
Senator Reeves won in a decisive victory in a special election on Tuesday, March 13. He will complete the remainder of the term of former State Senator Jim Tracy, who resigned last year after being appointed to a federal position by President Donald Trump. The term ends in 2020.
Reeves, a small business owner, was joined by his wife, Amanda, his sons Will and Jack, and his daughter, Emma-White.
