I want to introduce myself. My name is Leigh Rosser Wilburn. I am a lifelong resident of Fayette County, Tennessee, as were the seven generations before me. I have been married to Steven Wilburn for eleven years. We are both small business owners. I am a partner in Fayette County Title Company with my father and I have a law practice focusing on probate and estate matters, small business startups and family matters. Steven is a builder and a partner in Wilburn Construction.
I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting and a Master’s Degree in Taxation from the University of Memphis, and a Law Degree from Nashville School of Law. I am an active member in the First Presbyterian Church in Somerville, Secretary of the Board of the Fayette County Historical Society, and founding member of the Fayette County Young Republicans. I am also a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution, Daughters of the Confederate Veterans, Rotary International, Federalist Society and NRA.
As previously mentioned, I was born and raised in Fayette County aka small town USA. I have always been interested in history and politics. When you overlap the two interests, it is clear the direction that we are headed as a country if we stay the current course. Our state legislature is our strongest, best and last line of defense against a Federal Government that has grown too powerful. We live in a land of entitlement, and it cannot be sustained at the current level. I want to go to Nashville to represent the people of Fayette, Hardeman and McNairy counties. I want to do everything within my power to protect our small towns and keep them feeling like the homes we’ve always known.
If given the opportunity, my goals in Nashville are to reduce the size and scope of government in our daily lives, oppose a state income tax, create jobs, oppose common core, oppose Obamacare and defend our second amendment rights, unborn life and traditional marriage.
