Experience That Will Make A Difference For Us

As the founder and owner of Hywater Title, Jami understands how to make payroll and how excessive government interference hinders the growth of businesses. Decisions made at our state’s capitol affect each of her 15 employees and their families. She will serve the citizens of our community by promoting conservative economic principles and family values at the state level.

Elected in 2022 to the Murfreesboro City Council, Jami has been a strong advocate for local businesses and while on Council has crafted and supported ordinances to protect small business owners. She has developed a reputation for being a fiscal conservative who opposes wasteful spending while working to fully fund public safety measures, improve the city’s infrastructure, and expand the park system. She also serves on the Murfreesboro Planning Commission.

“Once elected, I will work tirelessly to unite the multiple governments in Rutherford County. There is nothing our county cannot accomplish if we work together.”
