“We need change in this court. We have got a crime epidemic in Montgomery County and Robertson County,” stated Dean. “We got some of the finest best trained law enforcement in both counties. What we got a problem with is a court that is creating a revolving door for people getting in trouble over and over again.”

“I am an attorney in both Springfield and Clarksville. I’ve got roots here in Montgomery County. Although I live in Robertson County, half my family branch comes from Montgomery County,” stated Dean.
