Welcome to the Senate!

Yesterday, Shelby County held two special elections to fill vacancies in the State Senate and State House. Senator Steve Cohen vacated his Senate seat to fill the 9th district in Tennessee's delegation to the United States House of Representatives, and State Representative Henri Brooks left her seat to assume a position in the Shelby County Commission. Read more here.

In the election to fill Cohen's seat, long time TCASK supporter, Representative Beverly Marrero, was elected to the state Senate with 56% of the vote yesterday. We are hopeful that Marrero will continue to carry the moratorium legislation that had been sponsored by Senator Shea Flinn (the temporary member appointed by the commission to fill the seat until the election). And we are delighted to have a new member elected to the Senate who is so dedicated to bringing true justice to our capital punishment system!

Congratulations, Senator Marrero!

That's great news!! Congratulations, Senator Marrero!
 
She is truly passionate about taking care of the ignored and exploited, totally genuine and charming/kind. Great sense of style, too. I'm so proud!
