New Johnsonville, TN – Tennessee State Representative John Tidwell is announcing his re-election bid as the Democratic nominee for State House District 74, covering Humphreys, Houston and the western part of Montgomery County.

Fort Campbell Troop Cuts Under Review
Clarksville, TN – 16 days remain in the public comment period by the United States Army Environmental Command, which is looking at the reduction of active duty troop strength of our armed forces. The US Army Environmental Command is currently taking public comments about this plan through August 25th, 2014.
“The time is now,” said Tennessee Representative Joe Pitts (D-Clarksville). “Unrest in the world anywhere means the national defense of the United States must be at full strength in terms of numbers and resources. We need everyone, veterans and the civilian community alike, to send letters, emails and make telephone calls in support of our U.S. Army generally and Fort Campbell specifically.”
