State Rep. Doug Overbey, Republican candidate for the State Senate, has announced a series of work days in which he will work a full shift at a different job each time.
From working alongside the highway department to welcoming students to school for the day, from checking patients into a health clinic to participating in the daily work of a theme park administrator, Overbey said he will spend a work shift at area businesses to meet people in the community.
“Hard work is nothing new for me,” he said. “I worked my way through Carson-Newman and law school through jobs as varied as busing tables at Ridgecrest Baptist Assembly, as a shift worker at Tennessee Eastman Kodak, selling clothes and sporting goods at J.C. Penny’s and painting houses,” he said.
Overbey said he will be doing work like the people of his district do everyday. “Work days are simply another way for me to meet the people of the Eighth Senate district where they are and hear directly from them about their thoughts and opinions on the challenges facing our state,” Overbey said.
