Cunningham, TN – On Saturday, July 30th, 2016 Tennessee State Representative for the 67th District Joe Pitts spoke at the 108th annual Lone Oak Picnic put on by the Central Civitan Club.
“10 years ago you took a chance and elected me to the State House of Representatives and I promised you a couple of things. First of all, that I would stay accessible and available if you needed something and hopefully we’ve done that. Secondly, you wouldn’t have to read my name in the scandal sheets and we’ve tried to hold ourselves to a high standard ethics and integrity and certainly we’ve done that as well,” Pitts stated.“It’s always good to be in the company of my colleagues like representative Reedy, Senator Green and others. Just know that we work hand in hand to help Montgomery County and the surrounding counties,” said Pitts.
“Just thank you for the honor of serving you and the house of representatives for the last 10 years,” stated Pitts.
