Rep. Marc Gravitt recently announced his candidacy for Hamilton County register of deeds.

Gravitt—owner of Gravitt Auctions & Appraisals—seeks to replace incumbent Register of Deeds Pam Hurst, who chose not to seek re-election.

“As a professional real estate broker and auctioneer for more than 25 years, I have worked directly with the register’s office on behalf of local businesses and clients across Hamilton County,” Gravitt said in a prepared statement. “I have also witnessed firsthand how Pam has done a terrific job in leading this office. I believe understanding the office’s operations from both the side of Tennessee statute and regulations and as a frequent customer in this office will drive my approach to this critical administrative position that serves the public.”


Gravitt currently represents District 30 in the state House, which includes parts of Chattanooga, East Ridge, East Brainerd, Apison and Collegedale.

“Serving the people of Hamilton County using the business experience I’ve obtained for more than 25 years is a true privilege,” he said. “We continue to see at every level of government that when elected leaders come from a business background, applying conservative business principles, taxpayers will benefit from improved services and cost efficiencies.”
