Dylan Earley, Knox County Commission (At-Large Seat 10)

Dylan Earley was born in rural East Tennessee just outside of Knoxville. Through his childhood, Dylan and his brothers were raised by a single mother. Like any mother would do, Dylan’s mother worked multiple jobs, scavenged for any overtime work she could find, and always managed to put food on the table for her kids. After witnessing his mother’s struggles, Dylan knew he could make an impact through public service.

Throughout his childhood, Dylan watched his father become a victim of the opioid epidemic that has impacted families across our state. After watching his father struggle with addiction for years, Dylan vowed he would use his own platform to fight the opioid epidemic and help struggling families. 

Dylan attended college at Carson-Newman University where he obtained a degree in History with a minor in Law and Policy and is currently studying Strategic Communications through American University. 

Since moving to Knoxville, Dylan has dedicated his time to serving those in the Knox County community. Dylan has mentored college students from the University of Tennessee & Maryville College in career development, has provided pro bono marketing consultations to small business owners, and is extensively involved in Knoxville’s ever-growing soccer community.
