My name is Elizabeth (Beth) Porter, and I am running for Covington City Council Position 6. A Covington resident since 2004, I served three years on Covington’s Planning Commission before being appointed to City Council in August 2020.  As Councilmember, I will continue advocating for preservation of our natural spaces, traffic and safety solutions, and creating a vibrant community. I will always champion to give Covington residents final ratification power (by ballot) of major capital projects such as a new Aquatics/Recreation center and City Hall.  I will represent you as our city navigates regional issues and our own growth.


My guiding principles are simple: Represent constituents. Collaborate with council and staff.  Inspire community involvement.  It won’t always be easy, but I believe in finding balance, having respect even when disagreeing, and being accessible to Covington residents.


If you agree with me, I respectfully ask for your vote. Together…We Are Covington!
