Jerred will be the first out gay man elected to the Memphis City Council!
I’m Jerred. Some of you know me through my work as Commissioner of Memphis City Beautiful, some of you may know me through the Downtown Neighborhood Association. And many of you know me through my music & my show “Almost Elton John”. If you don’t know me, I hope this website helps give you a little information about who I am and my passion for a better Memphis. As the quote above says, I live by a motto of “Be seen serving, don’t serve to be seen”. Let’s do all we can, for as many as we can, for as long as we can. This city has so much opportunity, but we have to lift up EVERYONE from EVERY neighborhood for our city to reach its fullest potential.
It’s time we elect leadership with a proven track record of being there for the community and delivering real results for the people – Memphis has had enough of candidates who just show up when it’s election time for their own personal benefit.
As you read through our website, you will see that over many years, I have had the honor of working shoulder to shoulder with some amazing Memphians for some amazing causes. I hope that you will elect me to represent you as your next councilman so I can continue to work with you all and help bring fresh ideas to Memphis and take our city to the next level.
Let’s ask not what Memphis can do for us, rather, what we can do for Memphis – together!
