I am local artist Hollie Berry and am running for Red Bank City Commission District 1. My husband, Rudy Elizondo, and I relocated from North Chattanooga to Red Bank five years ago, delighted to find an affordable dream home less than five miles from downtown. 


Putting down roots in Red Bank has given me a vested interest in the long-term success and livability of the area not only for my own family but for all residents.

I am is running for office because I, like many of my neighbors, envision added infrastructure including a library, parks, curbside recycling, and public transportation. 


My primary goal is to meet the needs of this growing community with a family-friendly focus that includes walkable and bikeable areas for all ages to enjoy. 


Red Bank residents want to see more small, locally-owned businesses and fewer national chains that can dilute the unique character of our city. I want to see our city come alive. Red Bank is a hidden gem that deserves to shine.

 

My experience as an artist brings a promise of creative problem-solving to the table and provides a unique view of the importance of the physical design of a city. From streetlights and trees to the placement of buildings - these considerations add up to give residents pride and a sense of belonging in their community. 


The people are the heart of our community. My hope that my neighbors will vote to give me the opportunity to advocate for a beautiful and functional Red Bank that meets everyone’s needs. I pledge to serve our community with transparency and dignity.
