JONESBORO CITY COUNCILMAN
Alfred Dixon, 29, plans to use the city council position to help the youth of Jonesboro. His dedication, consistancy, and will to perservere will help the council become more effective in benefiting ALL of Jonesboro as well as influence Jonesboro's quality of life.
Jonesboro resident since 2003 and an active particpant within the community serving as a volunteer for Lee Street Park Events and our Summer Concert Series. I am also employed at QuikTrip, a graduate of Mundy's Mill High School, and I've attended Clayton State University.
There are numerous ways we, together, can improve our city. One being bridging the generational gap by providing our youth an outlet and opportunity to participate. I want the city to purposefully allocate resources to make youth involvement key to the overall direction of the city. With this fresh approach we, as a community can improve the overall crime rate and perception!
I'm only 29. I don't have any kids, yet, but when that time comes, God willing, they will have the greatest opportunity to succeed right here in Jonesboro. Why can't Jonesboro be known as the best city in America to raise your kids? Or the friendliest city in America for entrepreneurs and business owners? The opportunity for development here in Jonesboro is amazing. I look forward to working with the current council, mayor, residents, and community partners to implement refreshing branding and advertising strategies that will help attract more quality businesses and residents to our city.
The people, our small town vibe, and the untapped areas of opportunity to make the city greater are the best parts about living in Jonesboro. I represent 70% of the population, an intricate part of the city that is not fully represented today. My relatability to our current and future generations alongside the tenacity to cherish and improve the quality of life for the ones who came before us is why I am your councilman.
