Darrell Denton

My name is, DARRELL DENTON, I’m asking you for your SUPPORT on August 6th. Our Property taxes are our Counties & Cities number one yearly source of income to provide us services needed. For the Counties Sheriff dept or the Cities Police dept., Emergency medical services to Fire Services, our County & City Municipal depts., County highway & City roads, our School System Countywide, Our County Mayor & Commissioners, and other services provided by our County & Cities. All these paid for by US with our monies from our property taxes. Regardless we PAY our share & they will continue to increase when needed. But to have someone come and walk your property to see if you have made an improvement to your house or farm? You added a new fence, had siding put on your home, got a new storage building, repaired your old barn, or you paved your drive! WHATEVER? Then have the AUTHORITY to penalize you for improving your property & the POWER to RAISE YOUR TAXS because you’ve tried to better your property ??? I DONT AGREE !!! You will never see me on your property trying to find a REASON to RAISE your TAXES, just because you have worked hard for years to have your dreams come true. IT’S JUST NOT RIGHT! I spent over 24 years as an elected official as an Alderman & then Mayor in the City of Ridgetop, until 2016 when I didn’t seek re-election. I ran for office 6 times & never lost because the citizens knew I STOOD behind them. IF you Elect me, YOU ARE MY BOSS!!!! I will work for you & always represent you & your best interest! Jesus Christ is my Savior, & I can promise you I will always be available for you & your needs NOW & AFTER the election. Anytime my phone is on 615-714-6153. It’s TIME FOR CHANGE & WE CAN MAKE THAT CHANGE TOGETHER!!! I need your VOTE on August 6th, Thank you SO MUCH !!!!

 

City of Greenbrier Mayor

Lanny Adcock – 

I want to introduce myself to the citizens of Greenbrier, that may not know me.

My name is Lanny Adcock and I am a lifetime resident of Robertson County. I served as a county commissioner for 22 years. During those 22 years, I served 12 years as chairman of buildings and grounds, eight years on the Robertson county sheriff Law enforcement community, four years on the Robertson County fire department committee and three years as chairman of the Robertson county budget committee. During the three years as chairman of the budget committee, two of the three years were with a balanced budget of 160 million.

*Conservative*
*Believe in operating with a balanced budget*
*100% support local law enforcement*

I also want to answer a few questions about where I stand on a few subjects.

• I am a conservative
• I am not in favor of raising property taxes
• My focus will be to do what is best for the city of Greenbrier and its citizens
• I believe functioning with a balanced budget is a necessity
• I feel workers should be placed based on their qualifications to do a specific job
• I believe in being fair but firm
• I am for giving back and helping others in our community

Jeff De Long –

Delong is a long time resident of Greenbrier and has served as Alderman for 14 years.

“A family man with a wife and 3 children, 11 grandchildren and 3 greatgrandchildren. I am a member of Ebenezer Baptist Church where I serve as Deacon and Sunday school director, ” Delong told Smokey Barn News.

“I recently retired from the Tennessee Army National Guard where I served 34 years including 2 deployments Operation Southern Watch and Operation Iraqi Freedom. I am in my second year serving as County Commissioner. I own and operate a service business in Greenbrier. My life has been dedicated to serving.

“I know the struggles of working every day trying hard to raise a family. I know what it is like when one flat tire or a dead battery can set you back and cause something else not to be paid, I have been there.

“I also know what it is like for a small business owner to try to survive with all the regulations and rules. I believe that a person that works hard should be rewarded not regulated. My family has had 3 generations graduate from Greenbrier schools and a 4th started this year.

“I care about this city and will always do my best to put the will of the citizens 1st and would appreciate your support.

Burtis Ridge – 

“A Fresh Start” My name is Burtis Ridge and I am a citizen of Greenbrier and have lived in Robertson Co for most of my life. I love this town and as Mayor my plan is to make this city safer and cleaner for the residents who enjoy living here.

•We need to add sidewalks near our schools so, our kids do not have to walk on the edge of the highway.

•We need to slow folks down as they use our highways and roads.

•We must add signaled crosswalks in the town square.

•We need to get a severe weather warning system in place that works.

•We need to add an auxiliary fire station on the opposite side of the railroad tracks equipped for emergencies.

•We need to enforce codes so that our city remains beautiful and inviting to visitors and citizens of Greenbrier.

•We need to add American flags in prominent places throughout the city.

•We need to maintain a balanced budget while providing the services that Greenbrier needs and requires while keeping taxes low.

I would appreciate your vote and will work hard for you if you give me a chance.

Sincerely,

Burtis Ridge
Candidate for Mayor

Sabi (Doc) Kumar

Thank You Robertson County!

It is an honor to serve as your State Representative in the Tennessee Legislature! I am proud of my service since 2014! I ask for Your Vote and Support because:

1. I Have Served the People.
As a surgeon, I always return my patient’s calls. I have done so for the last 43 years. As your State Representative, I have always responded to your calls, messages, emails and letters. In the time of the Covid-19 pandemic and the economic downturn, my office and I have worked to help all citizens who have called us for help with state matters including unemployment benefits. I, and my staff, give advice or connect you with the right person in government. We follow up and make sure that you received the help that you needed. Life being what it is, not all problems can be solved. When such is the case, we explain why and folks understand.
A particular joy has been to attend the eight High School Graduations in Robertson County. Sadly, this may not happen in 2020. We will always invite young graduates to come and shadow with me as a Surgeon or as a State Representative. It is a blessing to guide and inspire them!

2. I Have Served The Community.
I was elected to be your State Representative on November 4, 2014. Just ten days later, on November 14, 2014, I met with the TDOT Commissioner. I had not even been sworn in, yet! The plans about widening of highway 431 and a traffic signal at the junction of highways 49 – 257 have existed for years. I worked to make it happen. Construction is inconvenient, but the new roads are going to be beautiful!

3. Support Our Veterans
My wife Linda’s dad served in Korea. Linda and I have a special place for Veterans in our hearts. We visit, support and honor our Veterans!

4. I Have Served The State.
I have stood for our Common Sense Conservative Values: Love of God, Country and Sanctity of Life. I have worked to lower taxes, improve government, support 2nd Amendment and a balanced budget (Yes!). I have pushed for the largest ever increases in funding for our public schools and raises for our teachers.

5. I Give Back to Our Community.
I donate my salary to local causes and civic organizations.
This is my way to give back to a community that has given me everything that I have, including my wife Linda – 38 great years!

6. Keeping in Touch
Linda and I greatly enjoy and visit people, organizations and community events. My newspaper articles have regularly kept you informed.

7. Looking Ahead
I have set a foundation of trust, friendship, and honesty with citizens and fellow legislators. They seek and value my opinions. I am grateful to my wife Linda and our daughter Nina for love, support, help — and a little criticism, when necessary!
Please, pray for God’s Guidance. I ask for your vote and thank you for the trust you have placed in me! God Bless You and Our Nation!
