Kerry Roberts is one of us. He's a husband, father, part-time farmer, and small business owner. Like many folks, he has experienced good times and bad, including losing his business in the aftermath of the Nashville flood of 2010 and almost losing his home and small farm to foreclosure.
And because of those experiences, Kerry, his wife, and his kids know. They know what it's like to face an uncertain future. To look at a nearly-bare cupboard and wonder how to pay for groceries. To wake up on Christmas Day with no presents. To drive a car with over 300,000 miles and hoping today isn't the day it breaks down. Or the humiliation when it does.
In short, he knows what many of us go through each and every day. And that's what sets him apart from many elected officials. He listens, he cares, he helps. He's one of us.
