Erica Davis Announces Campaign For Bradley County Commission District 6, Seat B

Thursday, February 8, 2018

Erica Davis has announced her intention to seek the County Commission District 6, Seat B in the upcoming Republican Primary on May 1.   

“I see greater opportunity for Bradley County and the 6th District in particular," said Ms. Davis, when asked why she is running. "I look forward to earning the trust of the voters so that we can work together to make that opportunity a reality."

Ms. Davis, a Southeast Tennessee native, earned her undergraduate degree in Business Administration from UTC.  She went on to earn a masters degree in Special Education from Lee University.  She currently serves as a behavioral intervention specialist with the Bradley County School system, giving her, as she says “a unique perspective into the needs in Bradley County” through her daily interactions with students. 

She is married to James, her husband of 14 years. Together they have three children; Wyatt, Emmarie, and Evelynn.  They are also small business owners, operating James Davis Trucking, a custom and contract hauling company based in Bradley County. 

“Small business is a significant driver of the economy in Bradley County," said Ms. Davis. "As a small business owner myself, I know too well the challenges small businesses face. I am committed to supporting small business growth and economic development in Bradley County.  I am eager to see the potential that the Spring Branch Industrial Park will bring to Bradley County in the 6th District.” 

It is not a surprise that education is also a top priority in eyeing a potential role on the County Commission.  As a teacher in Bradley County, Ms. Davis said she firmly believes that education is critical to the continued growth and success in Bradley County.   

“We need to do all we can to prepare our students for the future," said Ms. Davis. "That means investing in STEM, and the latest technology.  There are exciting opportunities in the near future for the students of Bradley County.  We need to be ready to act on those opportunities in order to prepare our kids for life after graduation.” 

Community safety is also a key concern for Ms. Davis.  “As a mother, the safety of my children is a high priority.  I am committed to ensuring our law enforcement and first responders have all the necessary resources to do their job well.  We owe them a great debt of gratitude.  I will do my part as a County Commissioner to equip them, so that they can continue serving and protecting with excellence.”

Ms. Davis is asking local businesses, organizations, and voters to contact her to share their concerns.  “I will be responsive to the people in my district.  I look forward to meeting you over the course of this campaign, and hearing directly from you.  I ask for your support, and your vote.  Together we can continue to make Bradley County a great place to live, work, and raise a family.”
