With a background in business management, leadership, team building, business operations, and human resources, Price has the experience and passion to make a difference in Memphis.
In 2018, Mayor Jim Strickland appointed Price as Commissioner for the City of Memphis' City Beautiful Commission.

Price's commitment to a cleaner, more beautiful Memphis is evident in his involvement in numerous city cleanups and beautification projects.

Advocacy for Mud Island Amphitheater
Jerred Price, a dedicated community leader and entrepreneur, has been actively involved in advocating for the restoration of the Mud Island Amphitheater in Memphis. As the past president of the Downtown Neighborhood Association, he engaged the community and hosted meetings to discuss the restoration, which resulted in a $4 million commitment from the City of Memphis. Price has been persistent in following up on the progress of the project and calling out the City of Memphis and Memphis River Parks Partnership for the lack of investment and prioritization. As a candidate for Memphis City Council Super District 8, Position 3, Price's commitment to Mud Island and its Amphitheater demonstrates his passion for improving the city's public spaces and cultural offerings.
