CHATTANOOGA – The Chuck for Congress Campaign announced today that Chattanooga businessman Tom Decosimo will serve as the campaign’s Finance Chairman.
Mr. Decosimo said, “Chuck’s business experience, intellectual depth, ethical, moral and conservative grounding, and exceptional work ethic combine to make Chuck a very effective voice for the 3rd District. His command of the complex issues facing our nation and our region has earned him the respect of his colleagues and the Congressional leadership – and most importantly, the trust of the citizens he has faithfully represented. I am honored and feel a deep sense of civic duty to help return Chuck to Congress.”
“I am very thankful to have Tom’s support and help as the 2012 election draws closer. Tom has been a fixture of the Chattanooga community, and is well respected throughout the business community. I have relied on Tom’s advice in many areas during my service in Congress. I am pleased he has examined my voting record and my actions since taking office and decided to support me in such a prominent way,” Congressman Fleischmann said.
Mr. Decosimo is a principal at the Decosimo CPA Firm where he helps lead the Advisory Services practice and is CEO of Decosimo Corporate Finance, LLC, the Firm’s broker/dealer affiliate.
