I was born and raised in Cannon County and have been a resident living in the Doolittle Road / Pleasant Ridge community my entire life. My father was the late Macon A. Davenport and my mother was the late Wanda “Moore” Davenport. I have one sister Michelle “Davenport” Hale who lives in the Auburntown Community.
I am married to Dana “Morris” Davenport and we have one daughter Courtney Davenport. I also have two sons Zachary Davenport of Murfreesboro and Alex Davenport who lives in the Lake Ann subdivision here in Cannon County.
Prior to being elected to the role of Commissioner representing the 2nd District which includes Aubuntown, Pleasant Ridge, Gassaway and part of the Short Mountain communities I served on several boards here in Cannon County.
In 2010 I was asked to join the Cannon County Republican Party Board of Directors in the role of Secretary. In 2011 I was elected to be the Chairman of the Cannon County Republican Party and held that role until 2015. I served as the Past Party Chairman on the board until 2017.
In 2011 I was asked to join the Board of Directors for the Cannon County S.A.V.E. program that assists those people seeking help with Domestic Violence. I served on that board in the role of Secretary for two years.
In June 2012 I was asked to join the Cannon County Industrial Development Board by then County Commission Chairman Bob Stoetzel for a six year term. I served as the Secretary for that board until 2016. In 2016 I was asked to be the Chairman of the board and held that position until 2018 when my term ended.
In July 2012 I was appointed to the Cannon County Election Commission by then State Senator Mae Beavers and was reappointed in 2013 by Representative Mark Pody. I served as the Chairman of the Election Commission for two years until 2015.
In 2018 I made the decision to run for County Commissioner representing the 2nd District. I had been attending almost every Commission meeting since 2002 until I made my decision to run for the position. I believe that time gave me valuable insight to what problems the county faced and how the Commission made decisions concerning those problems.
Since being elected in 2018 I have tried to do as much research into all of the issues that have been brought before me in this role and make the best decision I could make based on the information in front of me. I enjoy the role very much and enjoy helping the citizens of Cannon County.
My phone is (615) 848-5478 and I am always available if anyone has any questions or concerns no matter what District they live in. Feel free to call, email or message me anytime. It is an honor to serve the citizens of Cannon County and I consider it the greatest place on Earth to live.
