State Representative Terri Lynn Weaver is getting a first hand look at what a typical day is like for a Trooper with the Tennessee Highway Patrol.
Following her monthly public forum she calls “Coffee and Conversations” this morning (Friday) at Angie’s Diner in Smithville, State Representative Weaver took a ride with Trooper T.J. Withers for a day of job shadowing.
“The State House Transportation Committee doesn’t just deal with pavement and bridges. We are actually over Homeland Security and Safety. Today I am shadowing Trooper T.J. Withers of the Tennessee Highway Patrol just to see what his day is like,” she said.
State Representative Weaver, who serves as Sub-Committee Chairman of the State House Transportation Committee, said she has a deep appreciation for the THP and wants to learn more about their job and the challenges they face each day.
