Representative Jerome Moon has received the endorsement of early education advocates, Tennesseans for Quality Early Education – Political Action Committee (TQEE-PAC). Moon, who was appointed to the district 8 position when Representative Art Swann was appointed to the state senate won the support of TQEE-PAC for his many years of advocating for children, quality education and his community.
“Representative Moon is a model public servant, especially when you consider his record on children,” said TQEE Executive Director, Mike Carpenter. “As a County Commissioner he supported adequate funding for schools in Blount County, including the early grades. He has been a leader in helping disadvantaged children through his support of United Way. And Representative Moon was recognized for his work to raise private funds for Pellissippi State Community College.”
During his first legislative session earlier this year, Representative Moon made his mark on behalf of young children through several important initiatives. Moon voted for a balanced budget that increased teacher pay, funded Voluntary Pre-K and provided resources for home visiting programs that combat opioid addiction and child abuse. Representative Moon also voted in favor of a pilot program to improve parental involvement in Pre-K, Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grades.
“Like the overwhelming majority of Tennesseans, Representative Moon agrees that early education is the building block of all future learning. As a conservative, he knows investing in early education leads to a return on investment that taxpayers cannot achieve by investing in prisons and social programs,” said Carpenter.
