about-courtenay-rogers-2.jpg

A true leader, who represents all voices in Williamson County.

As a 30 year Navy veteran, I had the privilege of commanding Courtenay Rogers’ first ship, the destroyer, USS HOPPER (DDG-70). As a newly commissioned Ensign, Courtenay quickly demonstrated the skills and characteristics desired in a talented junior officer. Intelligent, confident, and more than willing to make the extra effort; she was quick to gain my confidence as well as that of the Sailors she served with and led. She displayed the strength and integrity to meet demanding challenges, and I am certain these characteristics will serve her effectively as the state representative for Williamson County.

I’m a mother and a veteran with deep roots in Williamson County. After watching what happened with our school board two years ago and learning about the influx of money from outside special interest groups, I decided it was time to stop complaining and do something. The folks of District 63 deserve to be represented by someone who cares about them and who will fight for our schools, fix our traffic problems and ensure all working citizens have health insurance. My daughter is just beginning her public schooling in Williamson County and my parents will age and die here, so I’ve got many years left to dedicate to improving the quality of life in this county. -Courtenay Rogers
