John has earned a reputation for challenging the status quo and fighting for citizen’s rights in Sumner County. As County Mayor, John will bring his transparent, citizen-involved style of governance that is grounded in our inalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness to represent the interests of Sumner County. Building on this governance philosophy is answering a fundamental question that drives policy decision-making… Is this the role of government? For more information on John please visit here.
John's Sumner County Republican Roots
John has been an active member of the Sumner County Republican Party for over twenty years. It was in 1999, that he signed up to change the face of politics in our great county. In the back dining room of Shoney's restaurant, a small ,but dedicated, group of conservatives embarked on a bold initiative to hold a primary for the Constitutional Officers, District Attorney, Judges, and County Commission members. The party believed that is important that citizens know the party affiliation of candidates seeking their important vote. John Isbell, candidate for Assessor of Property, and Art McClellan, candidate for Judge, were the first to challenge the good ole' boy politics of Sumner County. Since this first election in 2000, Sumner County is decisively RED with every Constitutional Officer, the District Attorney, every judicial seat, and the majority of County Commissioners being elected as Republicans. Moreover, our Congressional, State Senator, and all three State Representatives are elected as Republicans. The party is proud of its hard work building a party of conservative leaders and John is honored to be part of this groundbreaking initiative that changed the face of politics in Sumner County.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
No one enjoys paying taxes. I take pride in my conservative values and my reputation as a fiscal hawk. I ran an Assessor's budget that was considered one of the most fiscally responsible budgets in the state with no audit issues throughout my tenure. We were able to deliver exceptional services to the citizens at a cost to the taxpayers that was consistently under the national average.
Accountability is best achieved with policies of transparency and open government. I will leverage technology to provide citizens with the ability to access information and easily interpret data. I will be diligent in ensuring citizens have a voice and will continue to fight those who wish to silence that voice. In short, I am battle-tested voice for the citizens of Sumner County.
The date is approaching fast. Join our team to put Sumner County values first.
