Senator Frist names Steve Smith VolPac National Finance Chairman



U.S. Senator Bill Frist (R-TN) today announced that Stephen B. Smith of Nashville has been selected to serve as the National Finance Chairman of Frist’s Volunteer Political Action Committee, known as VOLPAC.

“Steve brings a wealth of campaign and financial experience, which will be important to VOLPAC’s continued success,” said Frist. “The advancement of common sense, conservative, citizen legislators is a significant element to ensuring a government that encourages personal and fiscal responsibility. I’m honored Steve has agreed to lead our VOLPAC effort. I look forward to continuing our work together to support the Republican Party both in Tennessee and nationally.”

Smith is a principal at Haury & Smith Contractors, Inc., a 48-year-old development and home building company in Nashville. He has served on numerous boards, including the Metro-Nashville Parks and Recreation Board of Directors, the Nashville Planning Commission and the Tennessee Regional Transit Authority. He is currently serving a two-year term as an appointed director of the FHL Bank and member of the Board’s Credit Policy and Personnel Committees. Smith has also been involved in local and national politics as a member of the finance leadership for former Tennessee Governor Lamar Alexander’s presidential and senatorial campaigns and as a supporter of U.S. Congressman Van Hilleary’s congressional and gubernatorial campaigns. He is married to the former Denise Stinson and they have two sons, Stephen, Jr., a sophomore at Princeton University and Matt, a junior at Montgomery Bell Academy in Nashville.

VOLPAC was established by Senator Frist in 1998 to assist candidates who support personal responsibility, individual freedoms and opportunities, and lower taxes. The committee has been helpful in providing support for candidates in Tennessee and across the country.
