Jeremy H. G. Hayes Says Lynn Has Shown Herself To Be Untrustworthy
57TH DISTRICT, TENN. (19, APRIL 2017)
In a story reported by the Tennessee Star on March 12, 2017 Susan Lynn declined a challenge by Jeremy H. G. Hayes to debate the Gas Tax, saying, “No, I am not for the gas tax so there is nothing to debate.” In another email Lynn claimed, “I have never voted for a tax increase and I have voted to lower our taxes many times.” On April 19, 2017 Lynn voted to raise the gas tax.
“With our state having a two billion dollar surplus (taxes) I am disheartened, but not surprised Lynn was untruthful in her support of the gas tax. She is a bought and paid for candidate who received nearly $41,000 from special interest groups during her last election. Lynn cares more about taking care of those special interest groups than the people of District 57, said Hayes”
Hayes later went on to say, “Raising the gas tax is irresponsible, and when elected to office I will fight to repeal this unwarranted burden on our district. It does not take a math or business degree to understand that raising the fuel and diesel tax, on companies which transfer products to stores, will cost the consumer more on both ends. The shipping companies will not eat that additional overhead cost; they will pass that on to the consumer (raising the cost of products). At the end of the day our families will pay more in the store, and more at the pump.”
In addition to voting for the Gas Tax, Lynn killed the bathroom bill last session which would have kept an adult male predator from going into a little girl’s bathroom.
Hayes is running for State Representative District 57 and cites the main reasons for announcing his campaign were: to help families who are struggling because of establishment politicians and special interest groups benefiting from back room deals while hurting the public, the gas tax, and to protect the children of our community (after the sponsor of the bill killed it in the last session when it had the votes to pass).
