Isiah Hester, small business owner, minister, and lifelong Tennessean, announced his intentions to run for the office of Hamilton County Commission, District 5.

Mr. Hester is the owner of a locally-based commercial cleaning company and a husband and father of two. Additionally, he works as a para-professional with the Hamilton County Department of Education. He serves the community as associate minister of New Horizon Church and as a member of Washington Hills Neighborhood Association (vice president) and the Hamilton County Democratic Party.

A fierce advocate for the citizens of District 5, Mr. Hester is committed to improving education, creating jobs, strengthening infrastructure, and increasing accessibility to local government. 

Mr. Hester said, “I am concerned about the challenges facing District 5. There will be a negative impact for all of Hamilton County if these challenges are not adequately addressed by the commission. I have spoken with many citizens of District 5 and they share the same concerns. This community needs an informed, enthusiastic leader with a vision who will actively represent all the needs of District 5 and balance those needs with the overall vision for Chattanooga and Hamilton County.”
