Election 2014Cunningham, TN – Joe Sweeten, Register of Deeds candidate, attended the 106th Annual Lone Oak Picnic held by the Central Civitan Club talking to the people there on Saturday, July 27th, 2014.

“I am from Missouri originally, been here here 30 years. I’m pretty sure that mom, she’ 79 years old, is chopping mutton at an event just like this. That’s where I come from,” stated Sweeten. “”I am a veteran, law school graduate, and a computer programmer with 15 years experience.”

“So all the education in the world is not the ticket here. It’s the experience you have with it. Which I have the experience to bring this office forward where we need to be and take it into the future and save you a lot of money in the long run,” said Sweeten.
