City Manager

David Bolling, City Manager

City Manager David L. Bolling began his position with the city on June 3, 2013. He returned to this area after spending two years in Newcastle, Maine where he served as the Town Administrator. Prior to moving to Newcastle he served as the City Manager of Oliver Springs for six years and on the Anderson County Commission for four years. He has two children, son Carter and daughter Caroline.

Exposed to the importance of public service at an early age, through the example of his father who spent 20 years as the County Executive in Anderson County, he follows his belief that “if you want to make things better, roll up your sleeves and pitch in,” as a guide for his own career.

Prior to becoming a City Manager, Mr. Bolling served in banking and finance and has 14 years of combined public and private sector management experience. He attended Tusculum College in Greenville, Tennessee.
