Our Vision for Jackson

  • Create a Dignity Economy which will reflect the inherent value of every Jackson Resident

  • Conduct a major overhaul of our water metering and billing system

  • Continue to pave roads in disrepair across the City

  • Implement more holistic solutions to solve crime

  • Generate youth engagement centers to provide constructive outlets for our Young People

  • Launch demolition program to eliminate blight across the City

  • Create inclusive development across the City (i.e.: Highway 18 and Highway 80 corridors, South- & West Jackson)


"This is a moment that will define what kind of city we will be."

For the last three and a half years, our administration has been working hard to build what we’ve been calling a “dignity economy.”


The dictionary definition of dignity is “the state or quality of being worthy of honor or respect.”  We believe every single one of us is worthy of respect and that our economy should reflect that.  


So, when we talk about Jackson becoming better and stronger, we mean good jobs.  We mean making sure our JPS scholars are prepared to lead.  We mean safe, affordable housing and affordable access to quality internet.  We mean rebuilding and repairing our streets, sewers, and water system so that we have the infrastructure we deserve.


We have been busy working to make improvements to bring Jackson closer to the more livable, more accessible city we envision.  


My commitment has always been to ONE city, ONE aim, ONE destiny.  All neighborhoods matter and we will not rest until each and every neighborhood has what they need to thrive.
