Friends and family will hold a re-election campaign kickoff event for Wilson County Mayor Randall Hutto on Thursday from 5-7 p.m. at Five Oaks Golf and Country Club.
Hutto was elected to the seat in 2010 and said he has been honored to serve Lebanon, Mt. Juliet and Watertown.
“I’ve known Randall and his family all my life,” said Ken Davis, campaign manager. “He is one of the finest people I have known. He brings to politics what it should be like. I was happy to be involved in his campaign last election and haven’t changed my mind about his hard work and character during his term. He promised to work together for the betterment of the whole county and that is what he has done.”
Hutto is a lifelong resident of Wilson County. Growing up in Watertown, he attended Watertown Elementary School and graduated from Watertown High School. He earned a bachelor’s degree from Middle Tennessee State University in 1984, and would continue his education with a master’s-plus-30 degree in education from Trevecaa Nazarene College.
He began his career in education at Lebanon High School in 1984, teaching U.S. history, math and physical education. During his tenure at Lebanon High School, he utilized his passion for both young people and athletics as an assistant varsity football coach for 18 years. Hutto led the Blue Devils boys varsity basketball team as head coach for 12 years.
After an 18-year career at Lebanon High School, Hutto accepted the opportunity to serve as assistant director of schools for the Lebanon Special School District in 2003.
He and his wife, Paula, have been married for more than 27 years and have three children, Alex and Megan, both students at Tennessee Tech, and Brett, a student at Lebanon High School. Hutto and his family are members of Immanuel Baptist Church, where he teaches Sunday school and serves as a deacon. He is a member of the Lebanon, Mt.
