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.

- 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.
