Councilman Tony Yarber Announces His Candidacy for Mayor of Jackson. He says he is prepared to lead Jackson from day one.
On Tuesday, March 11, Yarber will officially announce his candidacy for Mayor of the City of Jackson. A two-term, experienced councilman and administrator, Councilman Yarber is prepared to lead Jackson.
"It is time for Jackson to become a great place for work, recreation, rest and raising a family," expressed Yarber.
Yarber's three-point plan includes:
- Continued infrastructure improvements, with Jacksonians tracking the progress as streets are repaved and pipes are repaired.
- A plan to reduce crime by working, from the "street" level, in partnership with businesses and communities.
- Support for new and existing businesses, with a creative, incentive-based approach to economic development.
Yarber says with knowledge, experience, and a passion for progress, he will work, from day one, to make Jackson a place that we all can be proud of. Yarber is married, with three children, and is a native of Jackson.
His official announcement will take place at City Hall at 9 am.
