Jackson Mayor Daniel Mahoney delivers 2023 State of the City Address
JACKSON, Mich. (WILX) - Mayor Daniel Mahoney delivered his 2023 State of the City Address at the Martin Luther King Jr. Recreation Center Wednesday.
It was his second address as Jackson’s mayor.
“I have to say it has sincerely been my highest honor to serve the citizens of the city of Jackson and I am inspired and motivated to continue serving as we look upon the horizon of the future,” Mahoney told the crowd.
Mahoney covered public safety, building up neighborhoods - specifically Jackson’s south side - supporting local businesses, diversity, roads and sustainability.
He even announced a broadband task force for people in Jackson who have little to no internet access.
“I look forward to the challenges and opportunities we will face and the work ahead to bring all of our plans to fruition,” Mahoney said. “I am confident that we have what it take to get this all done, just look at what we’ve been able to accomplish in the last year. But we can not do it without your help, your input and your support.”
