State Senate Candidate Dickerson First to File PetitionMarch 12, 2012
First to enter the race, and now first to file
NASHVILLE, TN. – Dr. Steve Dickerson, the Republican candidate for the State Senate in District 20, has been the first to file his petition to appear on the ballot for the Republican Primary to be held on August 2, 2012.
“I am proud to be a conservative candidate for the State Senate. As a physician and small business owner I will bring a commonsense approach that keeps government small and creates jobs,” said Dickerson. “Meeting with citizens across the district I have encountered overwhelming support for my candidacy and my commonsense conservative approach.”
Dr. Dickerson is the first candidate that has filed all the appropriate documents to the Davidson County Election Commission in order to appear on the ballot for the Republican Primary in August. Dickerson was able to collect enough signatures that all sixty-seven spaces of the petition were filled out by constituents of the new 20th State Senate District. State law only requires that twenty-five signatures be received in order to appear on the ballot.
“I believe that this shows great momentum for our campaign, to go above and beyond the required number of signatures in order to appear on the ballot for the Republican Primary.” Dickerson continued, “I am truly humbled by the amount of support that our campaign has already received this early into the election, and believe that it will be the difference that will carry us through August and to victory in November.”
Dr. Dickerson was also the first candidate to announce his intentions to run for the 20th State Senate District in January of this year.
Steve Dickerson is a practicing physician and founding partner of Anesthesia Services Associates. Dickerson attended the University of the South in Sewanee graduating with a B.A. in History. He then received his medical degree at the Bowman Gray School of Medicine of Wake Forest University. Steve Dickerson has been married to his wife Katrina for 19 years and they have three sons, Reid, Evan, and Bennett.
