The most important titles that Councilwoman Demetrus Coonrod will ever hold are “mom” and “proud Grandmother.” Coonrod, the oldest of four children, grew up in a working-class family. Her mother was a nurse by trade and her father was in the military. She experienced the impact of income inequality firsthand as she watched her parents battle drug addiction. The experience exposed for Coonrod the serious problems with determinants of health, especially for Black and lower-income families.

Demetrus Coonrod was first elected to the District 9 seat of the Chattanooga City Council on April 11, 2017. She was sworn in for a second term on April 19, 2021. She is currently serving as Chair of three Council committees: Economic Development Committee; Equity and Community Development Committee; and Human Resources Committee.
Councilwoman Coonrod is a graduate of Chattanooga High School for Paideia and Performing Arts Phoenix Three. She is a first-generation college student majoring in Sociology with a minor in Criminal Justice.

In January 2022, Councilwoman Coonrod was appointed to the National League of Cities 2022 Public Safety and Crime Prevention Federal Advocacy Committee. She was elected to a one-year term, where she will help guide and shape the NLC’s federal advocacy policies and priorities. 

She is a Leadership Chattanooga Alumni who holds membership in several other organizations: the Hamilton County Schools Leadership Program, Chattanooga-Hamilton County NAACP, National Black Caucus, National League of Cities, Order of Eastern Star Zia #1081, and Tennessee Municipal League. In addition, she serves on A Step Ahead Contraceptive Access Advisory Committee, Human Development Committee, Criminal Justice Reform Task Force, and Equity and Leadership Council.
