Welcome Jackson County Residents!
As chairman of the Jackson County Legislature, I welcome you to our official webpage. This site is designed to help you stay informed about your County Government.
I am very excited and privileged to serve as your 2024 Chairman for the Jackson County Legislature. Working with the County Executive and administration, we will continue to work tirelessly to improve the lives of our constituents and county associates while moving the county forward. Progress is only possible if the bodies of government work together.
As Chairman, I would like to spark a sense of unity among all branches of government, Executive, Legislature, Judicial & and Law Enforcement. With shared purpose and mutual cooperation, we will be able to complete significant projects that are finished on time and within budget.
It has been an honor and a privilege to represent the hardworking men and women of the 5th district for the past 5 years.
