MARINE CORPS VETERAN

A LIFETIME OF
Commissioner Joe Smith grew up on a tobacco farm right here in Sango, where the values of hard work and dedication were instilled in him from an early age. After graduating from Clarksville High School in 2002, Joe enlisted in the United States Marine Corps, deploying to combat as part of Operation Iraqi Freedom. He was honorably discharged in 2007 and decided to move back to Clarksville to serve the community he loves so much.
Upon returning home, Joe was immediately hired by Clarksville Fire and Rescue, where he served as a firefighter, an emergency medical responder, a hazardous materials technician, and as a fireboat coxswain. Even through his busy schedule as a first responder, Joe found time to work in his family’s growing business, and, in 2021, he took charge full-time as the owner and operator of Jodi’s Cabinet Sales here in Clarksville.
Joe's commitment to serving the community was furthered in 2018 when he was elected to represent District 3 in the County Commission. Since then, he has been an outspoken conservative voice and one of the most efficient problem solvers on the Commission. He works diligently every day to represent his constituents and the entire county through effective legislation and policies.
Joe is the son of Jeff Smith (Barbara Jo) and Jodi Vaughn (Darrell). He is married to the love of his life, Una Smith, who is a local realtor and the office manager for the family business. They have been married for 9 years and live in their forever home in Fredonia, TN. Together they have 5 children.
