Mike Sparks
Sparks represents District 49 in the Tennessee House of Representatives, which covers a portion of Rutherford County. He serves on the Commerce, Education Instruction and Finance, Ways and Means committees. He is also a member of the Finance, Ways and Means Appropriations Subcommittee. Sparks can be reached at 615-741-6829 or by email at rep.mike.sparks@capitol.tn.gov.

State Rep. Mike Sparks, R-Smyrna, has been ranked as one of the most conservative members of the Tennessee General Assembly by the American Conservative Union (ACU).

During the 2021 legislative session, Sparks supported conservative positions 90 percent of the time, according to an analysis of roll call votes by the ACU. The rating was the third highest score given to any member of the Tennessee House or Senate.

“It’s an honor to be recognized as one of the top conservative voices in Tennessee,” Sparks said. “I promise to continue to be a voice for the people and stand strong for our U.S. Constitution and conservative values.”

Sparks is among six members of the Tennessee House of Representatives who will receive the Award for Conservative Excellence from the ACU for his support of conservative issues. The award will be presented during the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) scheduled to be held Feb. 24-27 in Orlando, Fla.

As part of its analysis, the ACU looked at votes on legislation that addressed a variety of issues including bills that prohibit government from mandating COVID-19 vaccinations or imposing vaccine passports, strengthen Second Amendment protections by establishing “constitutional carry” in the state and ban critical race theory in schools.

According to its website, the ACU believes that the Constitution of the United States is the best political charter yet created by men for governing themselves. It is also the organization’s belief that the constitution is designed to guarantee the free exercise of the inherent rights of the individual through strictly limiting the power of government.

Thank you....
To stache or not to stache is the most important question.
If only the constitution could guarantee the free exercise of the inherent rights of individuals in Rutherford County and strictly limit the power of its Republican government! Then we might see the return of Justice and Freedom in Rutherford County, TN. Congratulations on your Award for Conspiracy Theory Excellence, Mr. Sparkler!
The ACU say they believe "The Constitution is the best political charter created by man etc".....I totally agree. Unfortunately, their "conservative awards" are given to elected Republicans who rip off and bastardize the brilliant document. Sparks is a perfect example of this. He has no original thoughts, never has. A follower of extreme rightwing diatribes, and an idiot of the highest order with the vision of Helen Keller. At least the ACU is consistent: give these awards to the bottom of the barrel in the Republican Party. Unfortunately for all of us, these morons are the ones that have become the leaders in a Party that used to have their shit together.....no more.....sad....very sad.
