Jonathan Mason on Thursday announced his intentions to run for the District 30 state House seat covering East Hamilton County, including areas of Chattanooga, East Ridge, East Brainerd, Apison, and Collegedale.

Current State Rep. Marc Gravitt is not seeking re-election, but is running for Hamilton County Register of Deeds.

Mr. Mason said, "Seeking public office is an endeavor that has required much prayer. Having worked diligently to ensure principled, conservative representation within District 30 and areas across Hamilton County, I now ask for the privilege to serve. I am honored by the many community and business leaders that have offered words of encouragement and support, and thankful to my wife and family for taking this step by my side to represent the citizens of District 30.

A graduate of Carson Newman College, he recently moved back to East Brainerd with his wife Rachael and their two children after many years in East Ridge. He is a past chairman of the Hamilton County Young Republicans, served as treasurer of East Ridge Revitalization, and has been a member of several community advisory boards. He currently works in the insurance sector and owns a salon with his wife. Together they are long time members of Morris Hill Baptist Church.

Mr. Mason is seeking the Republican nomination for the office of District 30 Representative. The Republican Primary will be held on Aug. 2, 2018.

Tired Of Property Tax Increases

Why is it every time the city of Chattanooga and Hamilton County want to raise money they have to punish the homeowners?  I'm sick of the few paying for the many.   If you want to be fair, I would not complain on a 1/2 cent local sales tax raise since everyone would have to contribute their fair share.  Or how about a wheel tax which would get everyone who owns ...
