Voters are invited to “meet and greet” Ward 5 City Council candidate Lewis Baggett at the Anchor Mortgage Company meeting room, 107 Center Point Drive, on Saturday, August 2, at 5:00 P.M. In 2006, Baggett made an unsuccessful bid for the mayoral seat in Clarksville.
“It is time for thoughtful leaders, and long past time to end the “yes” mentality to spending. We can no longer afford to have bobble-head council representation. The future will be what We make it, and we will not leave it to others to decide! Self-interest must never be allowed to be a consideration when conducting public business.”
— Lewis Baggett, Ward 5 City Council candidate
