Joshua Rogers is candidate for District 7 Commission seat A


Joshua Rogers has announced his candidacy for District 7 Seat A on the Bradley County Commission.

“My family has been in this area for generations, and we continue to work hard every day for Cleveland and Bradley County as a whole,” Rogers said.

Rogers is a Business graduate from Lee University where he studied Business Marketing and Management.

He currently works at Wholesale Business Supply Group on Keith Streets as the Director of Marketing and Public Relations along with his grandfather, Lloyd Rogers, and his father, Jeff Rogers.

He currently serves as the treasurer for the Bradley County Republican Party, a position which he says allows him to work with many of the elected officials on a daily basis.

Rogers’ platform for his campaign is, “I believe in conservative values that will increase the prosperity of our county.”

Rogers cites six topics that he says will have priorities as he sits as a Bradley County Commissioner. They are:

1.Emphasizing buying, hiring, spending and acting locally
2.Taking care of seniors and veterans “who took care of us.”
3.Supporting our teachers and creating the best schools in the state.
4.Keeping taxes low so taxpayers can “keep their money in their own pockets.”
5.Growing the local economy by creating high-paying jobs.
6.Building the infrastructure for future generations to come.

“I spoke with [County Commissioner] Mark Hall when he announced he would seek the state representative seat being vacated by state Rep. Kevin Brooks,” Rogers said. “Serving as the treasurer for the Bradley County Republican Party for the last year and a half, I have always said I would never run against another Republican who is doing a good job.”

“When Mark announced he was stepping down from the Commission, I decided to step up and to run,” he said. “Through prayer with my wife, my mentors and my family, we decided it was the best opportunity and time to run. We want to keep conservative values in Bradley County and we want to make sure we keep Bradley County conservative.”

He added that on every level of government, it was important to have the next generation of Republicans get involved in politics.

“The County Commission has done a great job for a long time and there are a lot of people who are on there now that I look up to and are friends of mine” Rogers said. “But, I feel there is an opportunity there to get a younger generation started in taking on this responsibility and to help continue the growth and the prosperity that we have,” Rogers said.

“Our entire family is so proud that one of our family members stepping up and putting themselves forward for a political position here in Bradley County,” said Jeff Rogers.

“The Rogers family have all worked so hard for this county and city, as well as many cities across the southeast creating jobs and creating business,” Lloyd Rogers said. “We’re excited to have Josh be able to run for a political position that is going to continue that growth and job creating here in Bradley County.”

“I look forward to meeting everyone in the 7th district and I encourage all of the District 7 voters to call me at 423-303-2345; email at; visit my Facebook page; or visit my website at,” Joshua said. “I will be more than happy to discuss the issues you care most about and I will appreciate your vote for Joshua Rogers, County Commission, District 7, Seat A, in the May 1, 2018 Bradley County Republican Party primary.
