Montgomery County Sheriff John Fuson spoke at the 106th Annual Lone Oak Picnic

Election 2014Cunningham, TN – Montgomery County Sheriff John Fuson talked to the crowd at the 106th Annual Lone Oak Picnic held by the Central Civitan Club on Saturday, July 27th, 2014.

“I took over as sheriff when we lost our incumbent Norman Lewis who passed away from a battle with cancer back in October of 2012,” said Fuson. “I took his position in December 2012 to finish his unexpired term, which is coming up here in August.”

“I’ve been involved with the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office for 17 years,” Fuson stated. “I began under then Sheriff Billy Smith as a reserve deputy. Norman Lewis hired me and put me in the courthouse as a court deputy. Then after a short period, I went over to the patrol division where I led the day shift as a supervisor and I also led our tactical unit.”

“I know what’s going on in this county. I’ve been here long enough to do it. I have worked with all the departments in county government to help get that job done,” said Fuson.
