Tennessee Senate Majority Leader Jack Johnson (R-Franklin) received the National Secretaries of State’s (NASS) Medallion Award for his steadfast fiscal leadership and significant contributions to Tennessee’s favorable business environment.
The award was presented by Tennessee Secretary of State Tre Hargett Friday evening at the Williamson County Republican Party’s Reagan Day Dinner.
"It's my pleasure to present my friend Senator Jack Johnson with the NASS Medallion Award," Hargett said. "Senator Johnson has made significant contributions to Tennessee's favorable business environment. His commitment to steadfast fiscal leadership continues to pay off for our state. Senator Johnson is well-deserving of this honor."
The NASS Medallion Award recognizes outstanding service and dedication to furthering the mission of the National Association of Secretaries of State. Individual secretaries of state may present the award to honor individuals in their state who promote the goals of NASS in one or more of four areas: elections, civic education, service to state government or a commitment of giving.
“I’m honored and humbled by this recognition of our efforts to improve the economic and business climate for Tennessee businesses,” Johnson said. “Certainly, making Tennessee the best place in the nation to find a career, do business and raise a family will continue to be a top priority and I am proud to partner with my colleagues Governor [Bill] Lee, Secretary Hargett and others to achieve this goal.”
