Emily Beaty recently announced her candidacy for Republican State executive committeewoman for the 10th Senatorial District.

Beaty is currently serving as the committeewoman for the 9th Senatorial District which includes Bradley, Polk, Meigs, and McMinn counties.

“People do not like what is happening in Washington,” said Beaty.

“I believe conservative polices, those that limit the size and reach of government, are the best policies to improve the lives of the American people. We can make a difference by electing officials who share our values and beliefs. As a current member of the State Executive Committee, I have seen firsthand that all politics are truly local.”

Beaty, a Bradley County native, has been interested in politics since an early age.

“My grandfather, Leon Beaty, would make his rounds in town on Saturday mornings and would take me with him,” said Beaty.

“I remember sitting at Hall Chevrolet many mornings and listening to a group of men argue about political issues. My grandfather believed that elected officials had a responsibility to use taxpayers’ money in the most efficient and effective manner. I often wonder what he would think about the state of our economy and the massive amounts of debt we have amassed for future generations to repay.

“As a parent of a young child, I believe we must find a way to turn our country around. Government must learn what we already know — you shouldn’t spend more than you make. It is that simple.”

Beaty is married to Jason Hildebrand and has a daughter, Sophia Grace Hildebrand. She is the daughter of Keith and Vicki Beaty and granddaughter of Mildred Beaty Maples.

She graduated from Bradley Central High School in 1994 and attended Middle Tennessee State University, where she earned a bachelor of business administration and a master of business administration from the Jones School of Business.

While in college, she was vice president of Alpha Delta Pi Sorority, president of the Raider Coordinating Council, president of Golden Key National Honor Society, a member of College Republicans, and a member of the nationally ranked MTSU Mock Trial Team. During graduate school, she was a graduate assistant and held several internships in Gov. Don Sundquist’s office. In 2001, she was also awarded an internship by the Appalachian Regional Commission with Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development. Later that year, she was appointed by Sundquist to the Commission on National and Community Service. While in college, she also spent time volunteering in the state Republican headquarters. “I cannot tell you how many envelopes I have stuffed over the years,” said Beaty. “Everyone is important in grassroots organizations. I believe it is time we return to that mentality. I am definitely not afraid of doing any job, no matter how small, to ensure we elect the right people.”

In 2008, Beaty attended the Republican National Convention as an at-large delegate and was a media correspondent to the 2008 Belmont Presidential Debate between Sens. John McCain and Barack Obama. She also attended the 2012 Republican National Convention as a delegate for the 3rd Congressional District. In 2012, she was named Bradley County’s Republican Woman of the Year. Currently, she also serves as a member of the Tennessee State Republican Party Finance Committee.

Beaty is the director of marketing for Pioneer Credit Company. She is a co-host for Cleveland’s Midday Buzz on Talk 101.3 and has also been a guest on Channel 45, WTCI TV’s “Tennessee Insider.” She is treasurer of the Cleveland Pilot Club and the immediate past president of the Benwood Homeowner’s Association.

“The State Executive Committee is the governing body of the state Republican Party,” stated Beaty. “The committee is responsible for establishing by-laws which govern county Republican organizations. I understand the importance of the committee and will continue to work hard to ensure the Republicans of the 10th Senatorial District are well represented. We can make a difference, and it starts here in our local community.”
