Ryan King Files Papers To Run For Chattanooga City Council District 4

Friday, September 21, 2012

Ryan King officially launched his campaign for Chattanooga City Council District 4 on Friday, filing his candidate petition with the Hamilton County Election Commission.   

Mr. King is a lifelong resident of East Brainerd and a realtor with Keller Williams Realty. 

“I love the East Brainerd area and Chattanooga, and I believe that with a more accessible and transparent local government this city can reach its potential,” said Mr. King. “For far too long, city council has segregated themselves and their decisions from the will of the people they represent, and that has been very apparent here in District 4. It is time we return the reigns of Chattanooga to its residents.”


Mr. King attended East Brainerd Elementary, as well as Ooltewah Middle and High Schools, before he earned a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga in Chemistry.  He currently serves on the Hamilton County Zoning Board of Appeals, is vice president of Friends of East Brainerd, Secretary of the Brainerd/East Brainerd Board of the Chamber of Commerce, is the vice president of the East Brainerd Elementary PTA where his son attends school, and is a 2011 graduate of Leadership Chattanooga.

“When people ask me what kind of platform I’m running on, I tell them that I don’t have a platform so much as a vision for Chattanooga,” said Mr. King. “I envision a Chattanooga that maximizes its potential by creating a safe and businessfriendly environment, which values the inclusion and opinions of all its inhabitants, and is always mindful that an innovative spirit is the fundamental element moving us forward. This vision can be a reality and I’m committed to working to make that Chattanooga exist.”

The Committee to Elect Ryan King is comprised of Sherri Anderson (treasurer – Johnson, Hickey & Murchison), Matt Hullander (Hullco Exteriors), John Eaves (Unum), Dr. Charles Ankar (Shallowford Family Dental Group), Daniel Anderson (Keller Williams), and David Martin (La Paz Chattanooga).
