Representative Jesse Chism (D) Member, Cities and Counties Subcommittee, Departments and Agencies Subcommittee, Local Government Committee, and State Government Committee.

Rep. Chism is a Shelby County Democrat. He serves on four committees, all concerning state and local government. His vote score of 50% is among the top of the democrat caucus. A leadership grade of D+ indicates a big-government-leaning political philosophy, which is antithetical to our Tennessee Rising political philosophy of “We the People,” free-market, and limited government, as dictated in the Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution.
