Bollinger appointed to Greenbrier City Council


During the monthly Greenbrier city council May meeting, Richard Weaver made a motion to appoint Jason Bollinger to serve in the newly vacant Ward 1, Position 2 on council. The vacancy was due to a recent move by former alderman, Matt Reynolds. Kelly Knowland seconded and all voted in favor. Bollinger then joined the council for the remainder of the meeting. While many might sit back and wonder what is going on with the city, Jason has showed interest by attending the public monthly meetings over the past year and being active in the community with his personal businesses and family. It seemed like an easy choice when considering the appointment process.




Jason shares, “I’m wholly invested here at home and our future and want to serve the community in any way that I can be most effective. With the growth our community has faced, we are encountering new and more difficult challenges every day.” Like everyone in our community, they could choose to live anywhere, but Greenbrier is home.


Jason and his wife Kerrie previously worked at a children’s home for at-risk youth in foster care and are the proud parents of one son. Kerrie is an Occupational Therapist at Baptist Health, while Jason has served in non-profit ministry with children and families for over 20 years.“I have taken what I’ve learned, and started a consulting business where I can equip and empower those that are on the frontlines for kids. I want my experience and knowledge to live on past myself,” said Jason. He also owns Bollinger Trailers located on Highway 65 in Greenbrier. “At every stage of my life, doors have been opened for me to help make a difference and it has become my life’s passion. Whether it’s the families I’ve been able to minister to through my work, serving on the board at Life Choices Pregnancy Center, the great people I get to meet selling a trailer, or with my church family at Crosspoint Church- Greenbrier, my biggest passion is people, building relationships, and working where the Lord leads me and where I’m best able to serve.”




While on council, Jason is excited for the opportunity to accomplish several of his goals. “To do this job well, I need to be accessible. I’d like to organize regular opportunities to meet in person with the people of Greenbrier through scheduled events like “coffee with your councilman” and utilizing technology” said Jason. He also wants to focus on transparency and efficiency. He adds, “While on the council, I’m going to do what I can to continue to make city government more transparent where people in our city are able to easily see and respond to the details of city operations and plans. In regards to efficiency, one of the highest responsibilities of government is to be good stewards of resources. Continuing to make sure dollars are allocated appropriately of course, but also as policies and procedures are updated, making sure that the workers of the city have the tools and processes they need in order to do their jobs well.”


Even though Jason will have to run for this newly appointed position in November, he is eager to get involved regardless. “This city is ours. All of ours. Whether your family has been here for generations or moved in yesterday, when you live in Greenbrier you are inheriting our community, traditions, values, and heritage.” He adds, “Beyond looking to the past, heritage is also what we leave for future generations. In order to preserve that heritage and

ensure that our great grandchildren are still proud to call Greenbrier home (even with a few more roundabouts) we need to be involved and personally work towards that future.”
