Representative Paul Sherrell (R-Sparta) was officially sworn in as the new State Representative for House District 43 on Tuesday, as the 110th General Assembly convened to organize. Sherrell was elected in November, and will be serving his first term in the Tennessee House of Representatives.

Sherrell wife and Speaker“I am thankful for the opportunity to serve, and I look forward to tackling meaningful issues for the people of District 43 this legislative session,” Sherrell said. “I urge my constituents to contact me with their thoughts and input as issues that are important to them progress through the General Assembly this year.”

Sherrell was also selected by the Speaker to serve on the Committee to Report to the Senate. The committee is a procedural one that notifies the Senate that the House has convened and organized for the legislative session.

“It is an honor to see Rep. Sherrell sworn in as a new member of the Tennessee House of Representatives,” said Speaker Beth Harwell (R-Nashville). “Tennessee is on the right track, but there is always more to be done. I know Rep. Sherrell will be an asset this legislative session.”

“I look forward to working with Representative Sherrell,” said House Majority Leader Glen Casada (R-Franklin). “Tennesseans have been clear that their priorities involve lower taxes, less government regulation, and a well-funded, high-standard education system. Together we will work to ensure Tennessee is an even better place to live, work, and raise a family.”

“I’m excited to call Representative Sherrell a colleague,” said House Republican Caucus Chairman Ryan Williams (R–Cookeville). “I am confident he will excel in this new endeavor, and I look forward to working with him on policies to benefit all Tennesseans.”

District 43 encompasses White, Grundy and part of Warren Counties. Sherrell can be contacted at
