Joda grew up in East Ridge and graduated from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. He runs a nonprofit that advocates to end predatory lending in Tennessee, greater funding for education, and investments to revitalize neighborhoods.
Steve West, equipment operator and SEIU member from Chattanooga said, “Joda has made expanding access to healthcare and raising the minimum wage a centerpiece of his campaign and he has demonstrated that he will put the interests of Tennessee’s working families first when he is elected.”
