Priestley Announces Candidacy for State Representative
McKENZIE — Today, Keith Priestley announces his candidacy for state representative of the 76th District of Tennessee. The 76th House District encompasses all of Weakley County and parts of Carroll and Obion counties.
“I am excited about the prospect of serving as your state representative in the District I call home. My roots run deep in the 76th District. My family came to Weakley County in 1848 and seven generations of Priestleys have called Weakley County home. From starting three small businesses to serving our nation in the United States Navy and in the Tennessee Army National Guard, I’ve always stepped up to lead rather than be led.”
Keith brings a wealth of church and community involvement to the race for the 76th District. He has served as an elder at the McKenzie Church of Christ for 27 years. Keith is the former president of McKenzie Banking Company/Foundation Bank, former President of the Carroll County Chamber of Commerce and has served on many other community boards and organizations.
“This race is about giving the hard-working families of the 76th District a representative with common-sense conservative principles who is ready to listen to their needs, passionately advocate for them in Nashville, and put their communities first. I am willing and I am ready. I’m excited to begin this journey and earn every vote along the way.”
Keith is married to Sherri [Richardson]. They have three adult children, Brents, Cara, and Brice.
