Speaker Friday, July 22, 2022
The Green Hills Rotary Club is not endorsing any candidate but feels that everyone should hear directly from the campaigns in order to make their personal decisions. The information below is directly from the campaign itself and has not been edited.
After serving in the Tennessee Army National Guard for three decades, including deployment in Operation Iraqi Freedom, Kurt retired with the rank of Brigadier General. He understands firsthand the fragile nature of freedom and that we must protect America from the ongoing threats from Russia and Communist China. He understands that these threats are not just abroad, but also on American soil at our Southern Border and Kurt will do everything in his power to stop the flood of illegal immigrants crossing our borders. He knows the liberal left led by Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Nancy Pelosi, and their do-nothing attitude about illegal immigration must end; now. He also understands the economic engine that drives our economy is failing as inflation and gas prices are stalling productivity. Kurt will always put the best interests of our country first and will lead the fight against the radical left who want nothing but to kick the can down the road. We know General Winstead has led the fight before and he is not afraid to do it again in Tennessee’s 5th Congressional District.
Kurt is pro-life, believes that every life is precious, and will fight to protect the unborn when elected to Congress. He is an avid hunter, gun owner and lifetime member of the National Rifle Association. Kurt understands that law abiding citizens are not the problem and that there is no need for more gun laws or restrictions. General Winstead fought to protect the 2nd amendment while serving in the military and he will defend it when elected to Congress. Kurt supported and voted for President Trump and will do everything he can to defeat Joe Biden and the Democrats in the next election.
General Winstead believes that America is the greatest country ever created, that freedom is precious, and that every generation has a mission to successfully complete for those that follow.
Kurt was raised in Tennessee in a home of educators and farmers who knew the importance of hard work, integrity and keeping your word. He served for more than thirty years in the Tennessee Army National Guard, including serving as Director of the Joint Staff, Tennessee’s Staff Judge Advocate, and Brigade Command Judge Advocate during Operation Iraqi Freedom III – all of this service to his country while also building a successful law practice in Nashville.
Kurt is a graduate of Centre College where he was captain of the football team, and received his law degree from the University of Richmond School of Law in Virginia. He also holds a master’s degree in Strategic Studies from the U.S. Army War College. Kurt and his wife Beth attend St. Matthew Church in Franklin. They are the proud parents of two adult daughters raised and educated in Williamson County.
