Jim Joiner has announced that he plans to seek re-election as mayor of Jefferson.
“I feel that I offer the leadership Jefferson needs at this point because of the many projects that we have working,” he said. “Two examples are the streetscape project and the Parks Creek Reservoir. Also, I am continually working with the chamber of commerce on economic development as we have commercial and industrial prospects interested in locating in Jefferson. Working with these prospects is one of the things that I really enjoy. It’s a great feeling to get new industry here not only because of the tax base, but also the job creation. Jefferson will continue to grow. It will grow whether we want it to or not."
