In 2004, Tres’ family moved to Cleveland, Tennessee where he went to high school. Tres' father, Charles, works in global supply chain management, and his mom, Sherry, worked as a hairdresser while raising Tres and his sisters, Mary and Meagan. A member of the Sons of the American Revolution, Tres’ family tree dates to two 1st generation American Revolutionaries.
Tres earned his BA in Mass Communications from The
University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. Upon graduating, he immediately began serving the great state of Tennessee. For eleven years, he served State Senator Bo Watson as Sr Policy and Research Advisor to the Senate Speaker Pro Tempore and Senate Finance Ways and Means Chairman - fighting every day for Tennesseans and our conservative principles.
While attending the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, Tres flourished in many student activities, eventually becoming State Chair of the College Republicans, as well as started the first Christians United for Israel on campus chapter. He also served as an anchor and reporter for the campus TV station, MOCS News.
Tres lives in Nashville and works tirelessly to fight for our conservative values every day. He speaks face-to-face with as many residents of Tennessee’s 5th District as possible so that he can be true to their concerns and represent them accurately and passionately. Tres looks forward to engaging a new generation of involved citizens to participate in the public arena for the future of Tennessee and our great nation. He’s ready to bring the America First Agenda to Congress for Tennessee.
“It’s time to bring Tennessee Conservative values to Washington D.C & Fight for America First. For too long, corruption and the good ol’ boys have plagued our nation's capital - being bought and paid off to keep their jobs in Washington. As our next generation’s leader, I’m ready to bring energy, fresh ideas, and fight for the values of Tennessee to make America First." - Tres Wittum, Candidate for Tennessee 5th Congressional District
