NASHVILLE — Tennessee lawmakers who returned to convened the 112th Tennessee General Assembly voted Wednesday to reelect the secretary of state and treasurer and newly elected comptroller Jason Mumpower.
“I have a great tradition to uphold,” Mumpower said. “I have learned from the best.”
The Tennessee State Constitution provides for three constitutional officers: the secretary of state, the comptroller of the treasury, and the treasurer. All three are elected by a joint session of the general assembly; the secretary of state serves a four-year term, and the other two officers serve two-year terms.
