COOKEVILLE—Yesterday,as part of Congress’s annual August district work period, U.S. Rep. John Rose (TN-6), a Tennessee Technological University (TTU) alumnus, spoke at TTU’s Inaugural Economic Summit on the current state of the economy and the need for more affordable and abundant energy.
Rose shared his vision and legislative goals if Republicans gain the majority of seats in the U.S. House of Representatives, which he describes as a “Commitment to America.” Rose’s “Commitment to America” focuses on fighting inflation, reducing gas prices, fixing the supply chain and holding President Biden accountable for his executive overreach.
“It’s always a pleasure to be back at my alma mater, especially when discussing an issue as important as the economic challenges we face in the days ahead due to the spending-induced recession caused by President Biden and Congressional Democrats,” said Rose in a statement released after the event. “My message to attendees of the summit was simple: they will be the ones that lay the foundation for the future of Tennessee. My job is simply to listen and represent them when I go to Washington so that I can best serve their economic development goals.”
