From the Mayor's Desk
I am excited and honored to serve as Mayor of our great city. I elected to run for mayor because public service represents a fundamental belief of mine….that we have an obligation, not just to belong to a community, but to participate in its betterment. I did not want to just sit on the sidelines and observe its development…. I wanted to do my part to lead it forward.

I am also looking forward to working with all the other agencies in our community to continue to improve our economic development to create more job opportunities for the people.

It is an honor and privilege to be able to serve the citizens of the City of Jesup. As mayor, I will continue to strive to make decisions to better our community and work hard to assist in the development and promotion of the great City of Jesup.
