State Rep. Vince Dean responded Monday to 20-year incumbent Gwen Tidwell's announcement that she will be seeking re-election for Hamilton County Criminal Court Clerk.
"My priority right now is to continue to serve the citizens of House District 30 in the Tennessee General Assembly and as Chairman of the Transportation Committee," said Rep. Dean. "As a candidate for Criminal Court Clerk, I am running a grass roots campaign focused on being an effective steward of Hamilton County's tax dollars and making critical improvements to our local government."
Rep. Dean is seeking the GOP nomination for Hamilton County Criminal Court Clerk in the May 6 primary. He will potentially face Democrat Tidwell in the county general election on Aug. 7.
"I will gladly contrast my vision of effective leadership and significant improvement in the Criminal Court Clerk's office with the incumbent's record of poor performance," said Rep. Dean. "I think the contrast will be
clear and the right choice easy to see."
Early voting for Hamilton County Criminal Court Clerk runs from April 16 to May 1, followed by the regular voting period. The county primary election day will be Tuesday, May 6, and the general election will be Thursday, Aug. 7.
