REQUEST BOOKING INFORMATION

 Debra Maggart Biography

Debra Maggart is a politician and former Republican Caucus Whip of the Tennessee House of Representatives. She served as the representative for the 45th district from 2004 until 2012.

Debra Maggart's experience as a legislator willing to take a stand for property rights -- and stand up to the NRA -- made her a hot commodity on the international media circuit. Debra's commentary on Second Amendment issues has made her a popular on-camera guest on high profile shows such as Christiana Amanpour Live, ABC Nightline, Anderson Cooper 360 and Huffington Post Live. Her story has also been featured in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, The Tennessean and other publications.

After her election to the Tennessee Legislature in 2004, Debra Maggart quickly rose to prominence as one of the most influential leaders in Tennessee. Maggart represented District 45 in 104th through 107th Tennessee General Assemblies (2004 2012); served as Republican Caucus Chair; member of House Education Committee, House Government Operations Committee, House Judiciary Committee, House Calendar and Rules Committee, and House General Subcommittee of Education.

She championed bills that resulted in the following legislation: Collaborative Conferencing Act (Gave teachers in the State of Tennessee a voice at the negotiating table); Voter ID Requirement; Sex Offender Crackdown (Her legislation brought Tennessee into compliance with the Adam Walsh Act); Protections for Child Abuse Victims (Allows video-taped evidence of a child testifying against his or her alleged offender to be admissible in a courtroom); Tort Reform (Enabling businesses to operate on a level playing field throughout the State); Tax Reform (Eliminated the gift tax and death tax in Tennessee to attract jobs and investment); SJR127 (Restores the Tennessee State Legislature's power to regulate abortion in Tennessee); and Gun Rights (pro-Second Amendment voting record).

Debra also runs a unique organization that serves as a partnership-builder for public schools and private businesses. As the director of COMPASS, Debra seeks out the best and brightest minds in her community to partner with schools. These gifted individuals are tapped to mentor and guide their partner schools to new levels of success. In addition to pairing local businesses, organizations and individuals with Sumner County schools, Debra fundraises for school improvement grants and student scholarship opportunities.

Debra makes time for her friends and family. As a mother of one, Debra's pride and joy are her daughter, granddaughter and grandson. She is a member of St. Joseph of Arimathea Episcopal Church, the Hendersonville Rotary Club, several area Chambers of Commerce, the Western Kentucky University Alumni Association Board of Directors and Phi Mu Fraternity for Women.
