NASHVILLE, Tennessee (WDEF) – Greg Vital from Harrison was formally sworn in to the Tennessee State Legislature on Wednesday.

He will represent House District 29 which includes Ooltewah and Collegedale.

Rep. Vital won a special election to replace Mike Carter who died earlier this year.

“I’m humbled and so very honored for this opportunity to serve,” Vital said. “I am committed to fighting for the people of District 29 and Tennessee by upholding their conservative values in Nashville. I look forward to the upcoming legislative session.”

Vital is a Republican party official, operator of Vital Buffalo Farm and co-founder of Morning Pointe Senior Living.

House Speaker Cameron Sexton said “Greg’s health care experience, his advocacy on behalf of Tennessee patients, and his passion for supporting small businesses and agriculture give him unique experiences and insights that will enhance the General Assembly. I appreciate his willingness to answer the call to serve; the citizens of his community are fortunate to have him representing them in Nashville.”

The legislature reconvenes early this year, with a special session beginning next week. The regular session begins in January.
