 Greenbrier Mayor Candidates

City Of Greenbrier Mayor 2 Year Unexpired Term

Joe Viaches Ad

Joe Viaches – I’ve lived in Greenbrier Robertson County for over 25 years. I was a Greenbrier Police officer for over 16 years. I was also given the opportunity to become the Police Chief of Ridgetop and have a total of 30 years in law enforcement. I have experienced first hand how city government runs, how to save money and cut costs and I would like to be your Mayor. I also want to grow the community such as a civic center at Louise Martin Memorial Park so that our children have something to do besides standing on the street corner or getting into mischief when they are out of school because I know, I’ve had to chase them. We need new businesses and we could use more factories but to achieve that we need to change some policies and how we conduct business in Greenbrier city Hall. I am willing and eager to work with the board if they are willing to work with me. I would also like to see more restaurants in Greenbrier. We already have liquor and liquor stores which despite varying opinions is a sign of the times but I would like to offer other suggestions to create incentives for new restaurants.  If I am elected by the good people of Greenbrier I would like to put a suggestion box for citizens to present their ideas and concerns to the city.  I promise that no idea will fall on deaf ears and that I will strive to be the best Mayor Greenbrier has ever had.


Bonette DawsonBonnette A. Dawson  – I am a life-long resident of Greenbrier and currently serving as Mayor.  I was educated at Greenbrier High and the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.  I am the CEO of Old Hickory Credit Union. I have served as an Alderman and Vice Mayor for the past nine years as well as being a member of the Planning & Zoning Board and the Park Board.  If elected, I want to see the city move forward with controlled growth and utilization of our tax dollars in the most efficient ways possible.  I would like to see the City obtain more businesses. I am married to W.I. Dawson and we have one daughter, Bethany who is married to Jeff Ballard and they are the parents of our two wonderful grandsons Grant and Ethan.

I was born in Frankfort, Germany in 1965 at an Army Hospital. I grew up in Nashville and graduated from Stratford High School. After High School, I attended multiple automotive related schools and developed my career. I started my own successful body shop, Brown’s Paint & Body in 1989.

I intend to bring the following to Robertson County. I will focus on better pay for our teachers. The future is in our hands and I want updated schools for our students. I want to bring better paying jobs all across our county by welcoming new businesses and factories to build inside our county. I want to build support for our local farmers. I see far too many taxes, and if elected, will not raise county taxes. I will seek a property tax cap for our senior citizens. I will have an open door to hear your grievances.

Robertson County Trustee 

Kendra Shelton banner ad 155 a


Kendra L. Shelton – for TRUSTEE: I am an accountant for Robertson County Finance Department for 8 years where I am responsible for the retirement, insurance, and investments of the all the County Government and Board of Education employees. I reconcile over $70 million of County funds annually. I have a total of 17 years accounting and finance experience.

I was born in Adams, TN and raised on the family farm where I learned the priceless value of having to work hard for the things that are important. This is my first time seeking public office. My desire is to be an “elected official” who serves the people, not a “politician.”

Goals if Elected:

  • Take care of the County’s money… I will use my education and experience to best account for and invest all the money taken in by Robertson County.
  • I will treat everyone as I want to be treated. I will be sure that you leave the office with an answer to your question or a way to contact someone else who can help…
  • And as I have said to all who asked if I could reduce their property taxes, I do not control the amount, but I will be nice to you when you come to pay!
  • Transparency and Trust… Too often distrust and apathy cause us to be critical of our government leaders. The only way to change that is to place honest, trustworthy, reliable people with proven track records in office. I am a person of such character and I ask for you vote as the next Robertson County Trustee.
