Rosabelle Gorman, a realtor with Crye-Leike Hixson, has picked up qualifying papers as a Democratic candidate for the Hamilton County District 3 County Commission seat.

Greg Martin, a Republican, is the incumbent.

Ms. Gorman said her top priorities are attracting high-quality employers who provide living wages for local citizens, offering equal public education opportunities for children in all areas of the county, and giving small, local businesses the advantages they need for growth.

Ms. Gorman said, “Our government should be working harder to make our community better. I’m eager to contribute.”

The 20-year resident of Chattanooga moved to Middle Valley in 2008. For two years she owned and operated Brix Nouveau, a wine bar in the North Shore. “I have a unique perspective on the joys and challenges of running a small, local business,” she said.

Ms. Gorman’s additional experience includes three years in vendor relations and budget/cost management with Volkswagen of Chattanooga and facilities/operations management with First Tennessee and CB Richard Ellis.

Ms. Gorman holds a B.S. in Business and Organizational Management from Bryan College and is a graduate of the Bill Holmberg Arts Leadership Academy.

Ms. Gorman and her husband Marshall have a young son. She is part of a military family and lived in various parts of the U.S. and across the world. She said, “I can definitely appreciate what a wonderful place Hixson is to live, work and raise a family. We need to keep our community’s identity while we promote responsible development here and throughout the county.”

The election is Aug. 2.
