The City of Kingsport’s government is based upon the Council-Manager form of government. This form of government was established in 1917 when the City was re-incorporated into what is now known as the modern city of Kingsport.

The City is governed by a seven member Board of Mayor and Aldermen, elected at-large and on a non-partisan basis for four-year staggered terms. The exception to this rule is that the Mayor is elected at-large for a two year term. Elections are held in May during odd numbered years. The new Board of Mayor and Alderman is seated on 1 July of each election year.

The current Board of Mayor and Aldermen is comprised of the following individuals: Mayor John Clark, Vice Mayor Mike McIntire, Alderman Darrell Duncan, Alderman Colette George, Alderman Michelle Mitchell, Alderman Tommy Olterman, and Alderman Tom Parham.
