Brown, the Tennessee State Director for the National Federation of Independent Business, has been an advocate for thousands of small companies, working with leaders at the state and federal level on general interest issues for entrepreneurs. While not telling too much of Brown’s story, he was deeply troubled by the dysfunction in federal government and the extreme ideological polarization in the national conversation that was turning neighbors, colleagues, friends, even family members into enemies.
