The Mayor holds the executive power of the City of Chattanooga. It is ultimately their job to figure out how the laws that the City Council passes should be implemented. The Mayor (with the approval of the City Council) also organizes the city departments, appoints department and committee heads, and writes the city budget. There are currently 15 candidates running for Mayor. Below you can view each candidate website as well as their Chattanooga Civics interview if available.
