Mayor Wess Ward was born and raised in Perry County coming from a long line of public servants in local leadership; beautiful place to start a family, educate our children, work, play and retire. There is something for everybody here.
Now Mayor Ward looks to move forward with more renovations planned, such as a Splash Pad for the city park, more sidewalks on every main road in the city and implementing a new paving plan. Mayor Ward sees the need to increase the utilization of the Buffalo and Tennessee River as many travel from abroad for the peaceful serenity found in Perry County’s naturally beautiful creeks, rivers and land.
Perry County offers the best outdoor hunting and fishing in the state. There are a wide range of recreational opportunities such as hiking, boating, kayaking, canoeing and more.
We are home to Cultural Arts and economical growth with Outdoor festivals and special events such as Blooming Arts, Remembering WWII, Music On Main, Buffalo River Fest a new downtown marketplace and so much more!
“I am Humbled, honored and dedicated and to serve the fine people of this amazing town. I promise to continue to move Linden forward every way I can.
I invite you to visit our Facebook page and look forward to your next visit to Linden, a family kind of place!”

Important Community Service Announcement from the Mayor
October 23, 2020
As of now, Perry County has the highest rate of positive COVID-19 cases in the State of Tennessee, and ranks 39 over all in the nation. As citizens of our great county, we have a responsibility to come together at this crucial moment and stop the spread of this virus.
Many of us who were vigilant in the beginning have let our guard down in the past few months. We have been guilty of seeing this as a “city problem” that can’t affect us country folk. That could not be further from the truth. The sad fact is that the death rate in rural Tennessee is 2x higher than that of our urban populations. We must continue to work together to keep families and our communities safe.
We want our children to continue to benefit from in person learning. We want our small businesses to thrive, and we want our families to stay safe. For that to happen, we must fight this battle as diligently as we did in the beginning of the pandemic. Wash your hands, stay six feet apart, stay home if you are sick or feel ill, or have been exposed to someone who has contracted COVID, and wear a mask in public areas.
These are small undertakings, but they can have a huge impact on the health and safety of Perry County if we do these things together. I am confident that we can make that happen, as we always have in the past.
