Smyrna businessman Jeff Hollingshead to run for mayor

A Smyrna businessman announced Monday he is running for mayor.

Jeff Hollingshead and his family gathered at the Smyrna Train Depot for his candidacy announcement.

Hollingshead is the general manager at Smyrna Ready Mix.

He says working for a small company has taught him a lot.

“We just went through the worst recession and we made it through it, succeeded through it, hired and grown and all that's due to the fact that everyday we get up, and we don't take no for an answer,” he said.

The Smyrna mayor race is in November of 2014.  Three Smyrna council seats will also be up for grabs.
