Dr. Ron Kirkland released the details of the upcoming “Ask Dr. Ron” tour across Middle and West Tennessee.
The tour will feature the conservative Republican running for Congress in the Eighth District as he takes questions and hears directly from the people who will decide the outcome of this next election.
Kirkland will also provide his views and policy insights on his pro-life stance, support for 2nd Amendment rights, commitment to limited government and ways to fight back against the radical liberal agenda of President Obama, Speaker Pelosi, and Roy Herron.
“As a doctor and a family man, I know how much it means to just listen. People appreciate the opportunity to be heard and meet someone who wants to fight for them,” said Kirkland after his meeting with voters in Dickson County.
“Unfortunately, I think people have gotten used to having things dictated to them from Washington all these years. It’s time to reverse that trend. In fact, it’s time we start telling Washington what to do.”
Included in his tour is a planned stop on Saturday, April 24 in the Dixie Courtyard in downtown Martin. Kirkland will meet with voters beginning at 5:45 p.m. that day.
Kirkland for Congress campaign manager, Brent Leatherwood, said, “These ‘Ask Dr. Ron’ stops are designed to be a gathering of people who are concerned about the direction Washington is leading us in. Dr. Kirkland is committed to providing a voice for their concerns.
“After making a career of listening to what ails people, he knows we must take time to really understand what is affecting the citizens of Middle and West Tennessee first-hand.”
“Dr. Kirkland is unafraid to answer any question from folks in attendance. And, unlike our competition, there won’t be any Washington handlers or politicians we’ve never heard of to answer the tough questions or spread false attacks,” said Leatherwood.
