WASHINGTON, D.C. – Over the course of the two-week April recess, Congressman John Rose (TN-6) led a full schedule with stops in all 19 counties of the Sixth Congressional District. During a 1,523 mile tour, he hosted and attended over 65 meetings and events with hundreds of constituents.


“I am committed to listening to the needs, concerns, and hopes of those in each county of Tennessee’s Sixth District. That commitment is why I chose to go to every one of our 19 counties in a whirlwind two weeks while also hosting regional town halls in all four corners of the district,” said Rose.


Congressman Rose traveled over 1,500 miles in the two weeks of April recess while meeting with the people who matter most, his constituents, in all 19 counties. From day one, he has prioritized time with the people of the Sixth District and this April recess was no exception.


“Every county has different needs (rural broadband, access to healthcare, infrastructure improvements, and more),” Rose continued, “but the hundreds of conversations with the good folks of Tennessee’s Sixth District reaffirmed that we all hope for the same opportunities: the promise of a good job, a safe and secure nation, and greater freedom tomorrow than we have today. I share these hopes, and it is my great privilege to continue the fight for these Tennessee values in the United States Congress.”


Congressman John Rose represents Tennessee’s Sixth Congressional District and resides in Cookeville with his wife, Chelsea, and their son, Guy. The Sixth District includes Cannon, Clay, Coffee, Cumberland, DeKalb, Fentress, Jackson, Macon, Overton, Pickett, Putnam, Robertson, Smith, Sumner, Trousdale, White, and Wilson counties as well as portions of Cheatham and Van Buren counties.
