Senatorial candidate speaking in UC Monday
Posted: Friday, June 15, 2012 5:00 pm
Union City High School graduate Dr. Shaun Crowell, who has announced his intention to run for U.S. Sen. Bob Corker’s seat in Congress this fall, will appear in Union City Monday night.
Crowell, son of Ron and Susan Crowell of South Fulton, will be the guest speaker at the Tea Party meeting at the Obion County Public Library. The meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m.
He grew up in Union City and has been a lifelong Tennessean. He graduated from Union City High School in 1991 and graduated cum laude from the University of Tennessee at Martin with a bachelor of science degree in agriculture. He then attended the University of Tennessee at Knoxville College of Veterinary Medicine where he received his doctorate in veterinary medicine in 1999.
Since then he has practiced veterinary medicine all over the state, having lived and worked in East, Middle and West Tennessee.
In early 2009, Crowell opened a small animal veterinary hospital servicing southern, suburban Nashville. As a small business owner and a middle-class American, he feels that he represents the average Tennessean better than other senatorial candidates.
Historically, he has voted with the conservative Christian movement within the Republican Party.
Today he continues his conservatism as an independent. He has been impressed with the libertarian’s view on economics and monetary policy and has therefore received the backing of the Libertarian Party in Tennessee, according to a news release announcing his candidacy.
Crowell stated he believes in a small federal government, a balanced budget, less taxes, protection of civil liberties and is campaigning to root out all forms of government, banker and corporate corruption.
He said he became politically motivated in 2008 after the Emergency Stabilization Act, supported by U.S. Sen. Corker.
While he said he understands that U.S. Sen. Corker has yet to win the Republican primary, he knows he is the favorite to win the election and has decided to allow the people to have another conservative option on Nov. 6.
Dave Nance will also be a guest speaker at the event. Published in The Messenger 6.15.12
