Although he was originally born in the coalfields of southern West Virginia, Mahlon Luttrell has called Bristol home for more than 60 years. He graduated from high school in 1972 and, at the age of 17, enlisted in the Tennessee Army National Guard. After serving proudly for nearly 8 years, he was honorably discharged at the rank of Staff Sergeant, having served as a Tank Commander and Squad Leader.

His educational background includes coursework completed at Virginia Highlands Community College, Northeast State Community College, East Tennessee State University, and the University of Tennessee. Professionally, he spent more than four decades in skilled trades and advanced manufacturing, conducting business across the globe. He also performed a number of administrative duties and held a variety of senior level positions before retiring in 2015.

Of all of his experiences, he is most proud of his work in the Bristol community. He is currently in his 16th year as President of the 501(c)(3) nonprofit Bristol Baseball, Inc. and has served as the General Manager of the Bristol Pirates (previously the Bristol White Sox) for the past 12 seasons. Additionally, he has been a member of the Jacobs Creek Job Corps Community Relations Council, and serves on the Bristol Tennessee Planning Commission, the Bristol Tennessee Parks and Recreation Commission, the Bristol Train Station Foundation, and many other boards throughout the community. He was elected to the Bristol, Tennessee City Council in 2019, serving as Vice Mayor for his first year, and was chosen to serve as Mayor in July of 2020.
