The new District is made-up of 11 counties: Anderson, Bradley, Campbell, Hamilton, McMinn, Monroe, Morgan, Polk, Roane, Scott, and Union.From a young boy overcoming the loss of his mother, to living on his own at 16, to mopping the floor of a McDonald's, to working in a library, to starting a business with his wife and finally becoming a member of Congress, Chuck Fleischmann has lived the American dream. He ran for office so he could try to bring that American dream that he's been privileged to be a part of, to you, to your family, and to your grandchildren.
Since being elected, Congressman Fleischmann has voted to cut $1.6 trillion from the federal budget, repeal ObamaCare, defund Planned Parenthood, rein in the EPA, and has a 100% pro-life and 2nd Amendment voting record. He is a proven conservative.
Chuck received his undergraduate degree in political science from the University of Illinois in 3 years. He received both Phi Beta Kappa and Magna Cum Laude honors. He then went to the University of Tennessee law school where he received his Doctor of Jurisprudence.
For 24 years Chuck and his wife ran a small business together in Chattanooga after they both graduated from law school at the University of Tennessee.
Chuck has served on the board of the National Craniofacial Association and on the board of the Cherokee Area Council of Boy Scouts of America. He served as the president of the Chattanooga Bar Association and chairman of the Chattanooga Lawyers Pro Bono Committee.
Chuck serves on the House Committee on Appropriations and a number of subcommittees that are vitally important to the residents of the 3rd District.
Chuck and his wife, Brenda, live in Ooltewah, Tennessee with their 3 boys: Chuckie, Jamie and Jeffrey.
