To my fellow Red Bank Citizens,

 

                I want to introduce myself to those of you who don’t know me, and hopefully earn your vote on Nov. 3 to continue serving in my current role as City Commissioner. I was appointed by the Commission in 2019 to succeed the late Terry Pope.

I was honored to be selected and have worked every day to carry Terry’s mantle as a forward thinking and visionary community leader.

 

                I was born and raised in Hamilton County, right up the road on the side of Signal Mountain. I graduated from McCallie (2005), Belmont University (B.S. Business/Communications, 2009), and Trinity International University (M.Div., 2017). When my wife Lindsey and I got married and had our first son, we decided to move back home and got a house in Red Bank. We made a great decision six years ago to come to Red Bank and we have loved living and serving in our community. We have three little boys who make every day a great adventure: Oliver, Henry and Arthur.

 

In addition to my current role as Commissioner, I represent Red Bank on a number of county boards, including our local Chamber of Commerce council that meets regularly at the community center (or via Zoom nowadays). We attend the Red Bank Chapel and are active in our church community. Over the years I have met many of our business and civic leaders and built relationships with them to move our city forward.

 

My goal as commissioner is to continue the momentum we have already built. I have a proven track record and have consistently voted:

·         For new neighborhoods and residential development; 

·         For commercial development along Dayton Boulevard;

·         To fund and improve our great parks and public spaces;

·         To update our design review process to make our city more beautiful;

·         For sidewalks and crossings to make our city more pedestrian friendly;

·         To fund and repair our infrastructure, including bridges and roads.

 

The work is still ongoing – but the vision is already happening. I would very much like to continue the work and see our city reach full potential. I would really appreciate your vote. Red Bank for Business – Red Bank for Life.

 

Thank you,

Tyler Howell – Commissioner, District 1
