Washington, DC – Representative Chuck Fleischmann (TN-03) released the following statement announcing the hiring of Daniel Tidwell as his Chief of Staff.

“I am very pleased to announce that Daniel Tidwell will serve as my new Chief of Staff. Daniel has served on my staff for seven years as my Legislative Director and has shown time and time again that he is the best person to serve as my Chief of Staff,” said Congressman Fleischmann. “Throughout his time working for me, Daniel has shown his devotion to the people of Tennessee’s Third Congressional District and to public service. I am proud to have him as my Chief of Staff, and I know that he, and my entire staff, will continue to work hard for my constituents.”
