Councilwoman Becky Kennedy

Councilwoman Becky Kennedy

Becky Kennedy grew up in Polk County and has lived in Columbus for 43 years. After retiring from the Polk County Clerk of Court office, she became very active in the community. Councilwoman Kennedy has served as Chair of the Polk County Board of Elections, Chair of the Columbus ABC Board, and the Tryon Women’s Golf Association president. Councilwoman Kennedy also served on Thermal Belt Outreach, Columbus Planning Board and is currently on the Tryon Country Club Board.

Being a firm believer in helping others, she helped raise funds for ten years in the Big Brothers/Big Sisters program. In return, the program honored Councilwoman Kennedy with induction into the 2nd Wind Hall of Fame.

Running for Town Council has been on her mind for a few years. Finally, in 2021, she decided to put thoughts to action.       

“I care about our town and what direction it takes. I want to be part of that direction & help make it a positive one.”
