School Board Democrat Running for Berke’s Senate Seat

David Testerman, a Democrat with a longtime career in education, has announced he will run for the state District 10 Senate seat now held by Democrat Andy Berke, who announced he won’t seek re-election.
From the Chattanooga TFP:
Testerman joined the Hamilton County Board of Education two years ago after retiring as assistant principal of East Ridge High School in 2007.
“I am dedicated to public service and always have been,” he said. “My politics have always been local. I think there are some issues going on in the state legislative body and I could provide some experiential knowledge.”
He said he could provide a voice in issues that affect educators.
“I hate to see public education get such bad reviews. I think we’ve got to change that perception that there are a lot of bad teachers out there,” he said
….Republicans Greg Vital and Todd Gardenhire also have entered the District 10 Senate race.
