Saying Sheriff Terry Ashe has had an impressive career is an understatement.For the past 30 years, Ashe has dedicated his life to law enforcement, making him the second longest serving sheriff in the state of Tennessee. From the time he was elected in 1982 until his resignation in September, Ashe has run for the office unopposed all but four times.
That credit goes to my staff and the people I have hired, Ashe said. The public had trust in me that humbles you. Running unopposed says that if we are in trouble, this is the guy we want to come to our house.

Saying Sheriff Terry Ashe has had an impressive career is an understatement.
For the past 30 years, Ashe has dedicated his life to law enforcement, making him the second longest serving sheriff in the state of Tennessee. From the time he was elected in 1982 until his resignation in September of this year, Ashe has run for the office unopposed all but four times. That credit goes to my staff and the people I have hired, Ashe said. The public had trust in me that humbles you. Running unopposed says that if we are in trouble, this is the guy we want to come to our house.
On Monday, Oct. 29, the public will once again voice their appreciation for Ashe at an event to be held in the East/West Building at the James E. Ward Agricultural Center.
We feel like his years of service in Wilson County deserve recognition. So many people would like to say thank you and job well done, Lebanon-Wilson Chamber of Commerce CEO Sue Vanatta said. The event will be open from 4:30 to 7 p.m. and is being hosted by a group of friends.
Ashe said that he had heard rumor of such an event and was honored. It would humble me that the community felt I had done the type of job that would be worthy of any type of function, he said. In addition to the event, Lebanon Mayor Philip Craighead, Mt. Juliet Mayor Ed Hagerty, Watertown Mayor Mike Jennings and Wilson County Mayor Randall Hutto have proclaimed Monday to be Terry Ashe Day.
With anyone who has dedicated themselves to the community, it is very important that we acknowledge that, Craighead said.
Since resigning as sheriff, Ashe has taken on a new role as the Executive Director of the Sheriffs Association. In the position, it is Ashes responsibility to use his years of experience and expertise to train other sheriffs throughout the state. It is very complex. These guys need to know from somebody who has been sheriff a long time how to do the job successfully, he said.
Ashe said it is an awesome responsibility with a little bigger badge, but that his heart will always be in county government.
It has been rather emotional to make this move. I miss my employees I cant say it any plainer than that, he said. It has been business, but it has also been personal. Ive been thru issues with them When you risk your life with another person, you have a closer bond with the. Im not ashamed to say I love them Im not that macho.
Midnight comes to every Cinderella, but I have a passion in county government and want to stay involved, he continued.
Ashe will also serve as the Legislative Liaison for the sheriffs in Tennessee to the Governors office and the General Assembly.
