Cunningham, TN – Montgomery County Commissioner for District 6 Dalton Harrison spoke at the 106th Annual Lone Oak Picnic held by the Central Civitan Club.
“I’m going to do something a little different. This afternoon you’ve heard people tell you want you want to hear to get elected. I’m not going to do that,” stated Harrison. “I’m going to tell you the truth and let you make up your own mind.”“The truth is, it’s a whole lot easier to stand back and tell people what your against. It’s takes a little more character and courage to step up and tell people what your for,” said Harrison.
“20 million dollar renovation at Montgomery Central High School, I was and am for that. Our children deserve that. They deserve a good place to learn,” Harrison stated. “New volunteer fire station in Cumberland Heights, I was and am for that. Our people out here need quicker response times and a reduction in their homeowners insurance.”
About the Lone Oak Picnic
The Central Civitan Club has sponsored the Lone Oak Picnic since 1975. Lone Oak is a tradition for candidates in Montgomery County. All the money raised is used in the communities south of the Cumberland River through several projects sponsored by the Central Civitan Club. The Central Civitan Club, for example, supports the local Boy and Girl Scout troops. The club provides financial assistance to victims of house fires in the community.
They also fund scholarships for and support many educational and extra-curricular activities of the students, teachers and staff at Montgomery Central High School, Montgomery Central Middle School and Montgomery Central Elementary School as well as Cumberland Heights Elementary School.
