Mayor Daniel Mahoney

Mayor Daniel Mahoney officially began his term as Mayor on Dec. 1, 2021 with a Swearing-In Ceremony at Jackson City Hall. The former Jackson County Commissioner and life-long Jackson resident is the City’s first African-American Mayor. New City Councilmember Angelita V. Gunn, who is representing the Third Ward, was also sworn in tonight, along with First Ward Councilmember Arlene Robinson and Fifth Ward Councilmember Karen Bunnell.  

The City Council chose Councilmember Arlene Robinson to serve as Vice Mayor for the new term and Sixth Ward Will Forgrave as the Council’s Chief Parliamentarian. The Vice Mayor runs meetings in the Mayor’s absence, or fills the position of Mayor if it becomes vacant before an election is held. The Chief Parliamentarian makes sure City Council rules and procedures are followed during meetings.
