As Mayor of East Ridge, Brent Lambert worked towards building partnerships to grow the city. He collaborated with the city attorney and city manager to be the first municipality in the state to submit an application for a “Border Region” designation. The mayor helped draw the district map to include all of Ringgold Road so that both new development and redevelopment would be possible, bringing in several new and growing businesses. This was all accomplished whilst keeping property taxes far lower than the surrounding area.
Mayor Lambert is committed to growing Hamilton County in the same way by working with the state, the local tourism board, and the Hamilton County schools so the entire region can prosper.
