From our new Lieutenant Governor-Elect:

Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Ginger Riggs and I have been married to my husband, Rock since 1996. We live in Sevierville and we have two children. Madison age 20 earned her Gold Award in Girl Scouts and is a junior at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville. Parker age 17 recently earned his rank of Eagle Scout and is a senior at the Gatlinburg-Pittman High School.
I have been in real estate since 2005 and was a co-owner of a real estate company from 2008-2013. I decided to retire my real estate license in November of 2016.

I have been a proud member of the Kiwanis Club of Sevierville since 2009 and served as the treasurer from 2012-2017. I am currently serving as the President of the Sevierville club and was honored to be asked to be the Lieutenant Governor for the 2019-2020 term. I look forward to serving as your Lieutenant Governor and I look forward to meeting each and every one of you.
