Vice Mayor Chris Bratcher announced he will run for re-election, continuing to make jobs his No.1 priority.

“My position as Vice Mayor allowed me, along with state and local officials and the Chamber of Commerce, to recruit Amazon.  The Amazon fulfillment center will provide 1,150 jobs with an average pay of $16.50 an hour,” said Bratcher, who was first elected to the Council in 1988.

“The new Wal-Mart on South Church Street will employ about 300 people.  The production of the Nissan LEAF in Smyrna represents a $1 billion investment that will provide jobs countywide.  There are other developments in the works,” Bratcher said, adding that the Chamber of Commerce saw a record increase in ribbon cuttings.

Bratcher also cited the development of the Avenue and the new hospital on Medical Center Parkway as job producers.  The City owns 100 undeveloped acres in the Gateway, an area where Bratcher would like to see corporations locate their headquarters, producing more, higher paying jobs.
