City Council elects new chair and vice-chair

Darrin Ledford will be the chair, Raquetta Dotley will be vice-chair

CHATTANOOGA (WDEF) – The Chattanooga City Council elected a new chair and vice-chair at Tuesday’s meeting.

Darrin Ledford from East Brainerd will be the new chair of the city council.

“I am overwhelmed by the support and trust my colleagues have placed in me to serve as chair, and I look forward to working alongside vice-chair Dotley and the City Council in continuing to foster communication and relationships as the building blocks of our community,” Ledford said.

Raquetta Dotley will serve as the new vice-chair.

She was just elected last year to the council, representing a district from Alton Park to East Lake.
“I deeply appreciate the faith my colleagues have placed in me, and as vice-chair I look forward to representing the amazing residents of district 7, and collaborating at a deeper level with my fellow council members in order to accomplish our urgent work,” Dotley said.

Both roles begin immediately.
