Tennessee State Representative for 74th District Jay Reedy spoke at 108th annual Lone Oak Picnic

Election 2016Cunningham, TN – Tennessee State Representative for 74th District Jay D. Reedy talked at the 108th annual Lone Oak Picnic put on by the Central Civitan Club on Saturday, July 30th, 2016.

“The delegation from Montgomery County has done a lot for Montgomery County and we plan on doing a lot more. The election two years ago I ran on less government, more local control and more personal responsibility. With that we have kept Tennessee at the lowest debt in the entire nation,” said Reedy.

Of course, per the constitution, we balance our budget every year unlike the Federal Government. So we need to keep pushing conservative ideas to Washington to get them to come in line as well,” Reedy stated.

“With that, I do need to mention that Blue Lives Matter. In our law enforcement, I appreciate those folks keeping law and order not only in Montgomery County but across the whole state. We need more support in their efforts,” said Reedy.
