Jim Holcomb
Treasurer
Jim Holcomb is a former member of the Tennessee House and Senate.He was first elected to the state House in challenger race in 1986.In 1992, the voters honored his distinguished service as a legislator by electing him to the state Senate where he served until 1996.He retired from the Senate to run for Tennessee's 1st District U.S. Congressional seat and finished second with a narrow loss of less than ½ of 1% of the votes cast (222) in a crowded field of 11 candidates.
As a legislator, Jim distinguished himself as an articulate spokesperson and studious surveyor of public policy from a distinctly conservative perspective.He was often the lead sponsor of pro-life legislation, including streamlining of the adoption process to make it a more reasonable alternative to abortion.One of Jim's crowning achievements before retiring from the state Senate in 1996 was to draft and sponsor Tennessee's laws prohibiting same-sex marriage.His foresight in addressing an issue that has moved to the forefront of public consciousness is one example of his insight and abilities in anticipating issues important to the conservative movement.Additionally, Jim was a frequent sponsor of legislation supported by gun-owners and was instrumental in passing DNA finger-printing laws.
Professionally, Jim has served the upper east Tennessee region for 28 years as a director of children and family mental health services and more recently as a governmental affairs specialist.He and Sonja, his wife of 28 years, have three adult sons and reside in Bluff City, Tennessee.
