Me, my wife Maria, and my kids  Matthew (16), Celeste (13), and Triston (12)



About Me

I am a proud and devout Christian, a veteran of The United States Air Force, and a devoted husband and father of three.  I have been married to my beautiful wife Maria for 17 years.  My children are ages 18, 15, and 14; and for the first time in my life, I am truly scared for their future.  With that and a calling, I have become motivated to action. 

I am a handgun carry permit holder, pro-2nd Amendment Conservative, who is scared of the direction this country is headed and the alarming rate at which it is happening. I am concerned with the utter disregard for the Constitution upon which this great Republic was founded. The principles which make this nation the greatest power for good ever established are under attack from within. The fact that so few of our legislators understand the limitations and intentions of the Constitution, and so few understand our Founding, is baffling to me. Freedom isn't free. It was bought and secured at a steep price, and it is kept at the same cost.

Some of my simple pleasures in life are spending time with my family, or enjoying the smell of a burning fire in my fire pit while listening to Phil Valentine, Mark Levin, and others on the radio.  If you are looking for an "Average Joe, working man" Representative, I am your guy.  I do not wish to be a part of the Washington crowd.  I don't want their parties and I don't want to be part of their circle.  I want to do my job in Washington limiting the size, scope, power and intrusion of government, and get home to my beloved Tennessee to spend time with my family and friends. 

During my four years in the U.S. Air Force, I had the priviledge of working on the AC130H & AC130U Model Gunships and C-130 Talon 2's at Hurlburt Field in Florida.  Through that experience, I landed a job as an Avionics Technician/Aircraft Electrician working for a major aircraft repair station in Nashville.  Over the next few months I hope to spend countless hours getting to know you, and more importantly letting you get to know me.  So please, if you know of  a gathering you'd like me to speak at, or if you'd like to arrange a meeting with me, please contact me and we'll get it arranged.  You can also click on the "Where To Meet Me" tab to find opportunities for you to come out and see me, meet me, and question me.  I cannot and will not be bought, and I will always stand on principle.  I want what is best for Tennessee, what is Constitutional, and what is right for America.  Our Independence is imperative, and we are giving it away.  Our current leaders are out of touch, and I want the opportunity to prove to you that I am not.  Please make sure to get out and vote for Tracy C. Tarum in the August 2nd Republican primary.  God bless you, and thank you for your support!
