a new vision for Tennessee


About Demetrus

Principled. Proven. Progressive.

Demetrus is proud to hold the title of Chattanooga Councilwoman, but the most important titles she has are Mom and Grandmother.  As the oldest of four children, she grew up in a working-class family in East Chattanooga. She has risen from humble beginnings, including a felony conviction, to live a purposeful life of service in a city she's proud to call home. 

Demetrus is running for Tennessee House 28 to give everyone, regardless of zip code or what they look like, representation on the issues that matter. It's time for a new voice in Nashville, someone who understands the struggles of the people in this district and will fight for them in the Capitol- someone who will stand alongside others fighting for equitable opportunities for all. Demetrus is that person, and she hopes you'll join her on this journey to become your next State Representative.
