Andrew Roberto was elected as City Councilman for the 2nd District on November 7, 2017 and sworn in on December 16, 2017.

A Knoxville native and a graduate of the Knox County public school system, Andrew graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of Tennessee in 1999 with a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science and a minor in Psychology. He received his Juris Doctorate from the UT College of Law in 2002 and later served as a Workers’ Compensation Specialist with the Tennessee Department of Labor. Since 2008, Andrew has been a local attorney and became a partner with The Lawyers of Brown & Roberto. 
 
Swearing in ceremonyPrior to serving on City Council, Andrew served as a Knox County Election Commissioner from 2014-2017, where he worked to encourage voter registration and participation. Passionate about community, Andrew served on The Salvation Army of Knoxville’s advisory board from 2012 to 2018, and as board chairman from 2015-2018. During his time on the advisory board, Andrew would frequently serve lunch at the soup kitchen and volunteer during the annual Red Kettle campaign. In recognition of his service, the organization presented him with their Partner in Mission Award in 2012. He was only the 33rd person nationwide to receive this honor.

Andrew served on the Sertoma Center board from 2016 to 2018, and in 2014 he served on the executive committee of the Congressional Medal of Honor Convention held here in Knoxville. As a small business owner, Andrew has led his firm in partnering with Celebrate Recovery in North Knoxville, the Epilepsy Foundation of East Tennessee, and the Tennessee Veterans Business Association over the past nine years.

Councilman Roberto and his wife, Sarah, reside in the Rocky Hill area with daughters Kylie and Hannah, who both attend Bearden High School. Sarah presently serves as the Director of Development and Outreach with the Sertoma Center.
