My name is Tim Clifton. I was born in Lawrence County, Tennessee, My parents were the late Connie and Elaine Osborn Clifton, and I am the second oldest child out of six brothers and sisters. I am a graduate of Lawrence County High School, class of 1973. Following high school, I enlisted in the Navy SeaBees.
After my enlistment ended, I moved back to Lawrence County. I then enrolled in the Pulaski Vocational Technical School, where I obtained two certifications, one as an Industrial Electrician and the second as an Industrial Machinist. Later, I started my own business as a residential and commercial electrician.
In 2004, I went to work for the Lawrence County Highway Department. I remained with the Highway Department for 13 years and five months. After retiring, I purchased a house on Kennedy Street in Lawrenceburg and have lived there ever since.
A few years ago, I volunteered to help at the Election Commission as a poll worker and signed up as a volunteer driver with MyRide Lawrence.
I also volunteer with the DAV to help build handicap access ramps for disabled veterans. My efforts with the DAV led to an invitation to serve on the City of Lawrenceburg’s Veteran’s Park Planning Committee.
I must add that I am an active member of the Pulaski Street Church of Christ and take my commitment to serve Jesus Christ seriously.
I look forward to the next several years while serving as a County Commissioner from my district.
