MADISONVILLE-When republicans decided to redraw Tennessee districts, Monroe County lost John Duncan Jr., its long time congressional representative, but Chuck Fleischmann said Thursday he's determined to offer the kind of leadership Duncan was known for.

Fleischmann was in Madisonville for what he called a "mayor's round table." He said he was going to all the counties in the third district and meeting with town/city and county mayors to see what needs they might have he could help with.

"You'll see a lot of us," Fleischmann said. "The new 3rd District is great. Local government is the best government we have. The mayors know they going to see their constituents in stores and at church, so they do the best they can to manage their towns and make sure everything is running smoothly."
