Pledge For County Commissioner Candidates - 2010 Primary Election


In the final months of 2009, we began compiling a list of county-related issues that are important to the residents of Rutherford County. That list was added to and edited during the R912 Group Meetings.

At the December 2009 R912 Group Meeting, we (the R912 Patriots) voted on the top 9 issues that we feel are most important to us and our friends and neighbors.

Those 9 issues were combined with the 12 912 Project values and the Rutherford 912 Pledge was born.

Copies of that pledge were given to each candidate for Rutherford County Commissioner. Their responses are posted on this site. Once the filing date for the election was closed (Feb. 26th), the list of signers was formatted and put into a Voter Guide and is being distributed to voters throughout the county.
