District 8 isn’t on the same playing field as the rest of Chattanooga. We’ve been left behind and overlooked for millions in support and economic investment. Everyone deserves access to career paths that grow wealth, support our community and protect our future.
Here’s how we’re going to get it done: 

Connect residents to future-ready job training. By 2025, millennials will be 75 percent of the workforce. Younger generations must be trained to work in the jobs left vacant by baby boomers, and we will connect them with future-ready jobs that capitalize on our city’s world-class internet. Chattanooga is an emerging regional technology hub, and it’s time for District 8 to capitalize. Click here to read about job training already happening in Chattanooga. 

Ensure promised funds reach our small business owners. The American Rescue Plan sent Chattanooga $38 million. Via Executive Order 13985, these funds are set aside for economic repair and historically underserved communities. As councilwoman, I want to ensure that a portion of those funds is budgeted for minority business and workforce development. Funds should be allocated for business startup capital to cultivate, grow, promote and support small businesses, improve broadband access and close the racial entrepreneurship gap.

Invest in career pathways. District 8 is home to 14 different education centers, ranging from elementary to college. At these sites, we will organize and host popup events teaching about labor unions, employee relations and all the opportunities Chattanooga offers District 8’s young residents. 

District 8 is home to some of Chattanooga’s brightest business minds and hardest working hands–throughout the District, you’ll see small businesses on every corner. We don’t lack talent or ability, we only lack support. With your help, I’ll make sure our District gets that support. Vote Marie Mott for City Council on Aug. 4.

Let’s see if I have this right. Taxpayers are to foot the bill to the tune of $80 million for a new baseball stadium that will be designed to hold 6,000 people. We must not plan on a great deal of attendance. Research reveals that during pre-pandemic in 2019, the average attendance was 3,948. Furthermore, under the current proposal if you attend a game, you must pay to park. So, … (click for more)

They shot fireworks at AT&T Field for the second straight night as 4,264 baseball fans gathered to celebrate the Independence Day weekend. We all have lots of reasons to celebrate as we enjoy the freedom to watch minor league baseball in a nice ballpark, but a victory by the host Chattanooga Lookouts wasn’t included. The Lookouts didn’t have much to cheer about as their … (click for more)
We all know that good pitching, timely hitting and solid defense gives any baseball team on any level a good chance of winning, but when any of the three falter, those odds drop way down. Facing the Birmingham Barons for the fourth straight day at AT&T Field Friday night, the Chattanooga Lookouts were lacking in two of the three, so it’s not a real surprise that the guys … (click for more)
