Charles Curtiss (D) Sparta represented House District 43 which included Grundy, Warren and White Counties for 19 years and chaired important committees during his tenure. He has recently announced he will not run for reelection.
Known as a religious conservative man with strong pro life convictions, he strongly supported and helped lead the effort to pass SJR 127 through all the committees and floor votes necessary to the goal of being on the ballot in 2014 allowing Tennessee citizens to vote on this important pro life issue.. His principled and courageous stand throughout the 11 year struggle never wavered or buckled under pressure.
He stopped by the offices of Tennessee Right to Life today to give a $10,000 donation to help win Yes on Amendment One in November. Thank you Representative Curtiss for your generosity and leadership example. We wish you the best as you transition out of public service. You will be missed.
