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 has served as President of the 501(c)(3) nonprofit Bristol Baseball, Inc. since 2003 and as General Manager of the Bristol State Liners (previously the Minor League affiliate Bristol White Sox and Bristol Pirates) since 2007. Additionally, he has been a member of the Jacobs Creek Job Corps Community Relations Council, and serves on a number of 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 served as Mayor from July 2020 through January 2023.
