Matt Adams joins race for Hamilton County Mayor
Adams is the only Democrat in the race so far
CHATTANOOGA (WDEF) – The list of candidates in the race for the upcoming Hamilton County Mayor election grew to four today.
Hamilton County Mayoral candidate Matt Adams filed his petition at the election commission, this afternoon.
Currently residing in District 6, Adams is the only registered Democrat running in the election.
“I look at the Mayor’s office as a way to accomplish a mission, and that mission is something that is greater than me. I don’t really look at it as a democratic position or a republican position. I look at it as, you know, “how can I accomplish that thing that is greater than me.”
Adams has listed his top priorities as community engagement, public education, and cohesion among local governmental bodies.
Next Wednesday at 6:30, Adams will be holding a virtual education forum with local educators and community members.
