“Your Vote Is Powerful—Use It” is the slogan of City Councilwoman Carol Berz’s re-election campaign in District 6. Despite running unopposed for the seat, Councilwoman Berz said she plans an active schedule of town hall meetings, voter registration and get-out-the-vote efforts.

“I am very appreciative that those in my district believe I am doing a good job, allowing me to run unopposed,” said Councilwoman Berz. “But we want everyone in District 6 to continue to tell us what priorities they see for the area, and by registering to vote and voting in this election, they become part of the democratic process for the future as well.

A strong voter turnout is powerful, and goes a long way in getting things done for the district.”

The first town hall meeting sponsored by the Berz campaign will take place Thursday, Jan. 24, at 6 p.m., at Tyner/East Brainerd Recreation Center, 6900 Ty Hi Dr. The Chattanooga Police Department will offer child I.D. photos. The public is invited to attend.
