Longtime resident Billy Borchert launches campaign focused on local issues

Election 2018New Johnsonville, TN – Billy Borchert launched his campaign Wednesday for Tennessee House District 74, in a bid to unseat Republican Jay Reedy and represent residents of Waverly, McEwan, Erin, New Johnsonville, and parts of Clarksville in the Tennessee legislature.

As a career pipefitter who now operates a farm with his family in New Johnsonville, Borchert says he’ll bring the same mindset of principled hard work to Nashville to fix the area’s most pressing problems.

Election Day 2012

 

Election 2012Clarksville, TN – On Election Day polls opened at 7:00am, but I didn’t get going till 9:30am. My first stop was to vote at Smith school. After I voted, I took a few pictures before I headed off to the Election Commission.

“The elections today have been busy, very busy,” said Rita Wilson, the chairwoman of the Montgomery County Election Commission.  A lot of people decided that they wanted to vote today, but they had not bothered to check and see where they were supposed to vote.  So we are having a big backlog of them coming in and phone calls about that.  But I think that people are really excited about election day,” according to Wilson.

John C. Tidwell

Election 2012Clarksville, TN – District 74 State Representative John Tidwell makes the first impression of a “good old country boy” who just climbed out of the combine to greet you.   Once you get him started, he’s like your country neighbor talking about the crops and the livestock, he’s probably not going to stop talking until you tell him you’ve got to get home for dinner, but make no mistake, he’s just as comfortable roaming the halls of the Tennessee Legislature as he is leaning against the fencepost “shooting the breeze.”

Tidwell was a guest on “Clarksville in Review” this weekend on WJZM 1400am with host Hank Bonecutter, on the heals of last Thursday’s primary where Lauri Day defeated Nick Steward for the republican nomination.

I ran into two of the Democrats who were working the crowd on Saturday and both had a lot to say about what is going on in Tennessee and what needs to be changed.

First, I talked with Credo Amouzouvik who is running for against Republican Representative Marsha Blackburn in the Seventh Congressional District of Tennessee. Credo is a combat-wounded Iraq war veteran and is medically retired. He immigrated and became a U.S. Citizen from the West African nation of Togo.
