It is a privilege to serve as the Executive Director of the Jefferson County Mayors Association. The opportunity to work with the mayors of the county’s thirty-six cities, other elected representatives and our partner organizations to move our county forward is extremely exciting.
I believe by building relationships, unifying resources and focusing on common goals, the JCMA can have a great impact for the citizens of Jefferson County.
