Tammy Davis seeks post as District 7 commissioner, Seat A


“Today I’m formally announcing my candidacy for Bradley County Commission, District 7, seat A,” noted Tammy Davis.

“I’ve lived and worked in Bradley County for the past 22 years raising a family, growing a business and working with families and industry leaders to grow the community. I’m a single mom with three great children and one perfect grandchild.

“I’ve been a licensed Realtor for the past 14 years with memberships in River Counties Association of Realtors, Tennessee Association of Realtors and National Association of Realtors. As a Realtor, I’m extremely knowledgeable with the area and what is needed to grow a strong innovative economy. Along with my real estate business, I process accounting for a local supply company part-time and co-chair for the Bradley County Democratic Party, and have been active with the party for many years,” she said.

“I believe education is essential to growing our community and encouraging new industry to our area for higher paying jobs. Technology is ever changing and we must work with teachers, corporations, and families to promote school-to-work programs, job shadowing and internships that benefit not only the students but also businesses,” Davis said.

This allows students the opportunity to see firsthand how businesses operate and to find the career that best suits their needs and wants.

“Budgeting and limiting spending is also an area that can always be improved. Working in different aspects of accounting and bookkeeping for over 10 years, I know how to account for expenses and as a single mom, I know how to stretch every penny,” Davis said. “As your elected commissioner, I would be conscientious of the money received and try in every way possible to find ways of cutting waste and misuse, while funding programs to support our first responders, law enforcement and veterans. As a mom of an active-duty Marine, I know they need our help now and when returning home.”

“In today’s contentious political environment, we tend to hear only one point of view, but I believe we’re missing new ideas, and new concepts that may have answers to problems. We live in a diverse country with a wide range of ages, races and backgrounds. I feel we need more representation for women on the board, in the state and nationwide. As your county commissioner, I’ll listen to all those voices and do my best to represent everyone,” she said.
