Quickly following his announcement to run for Mayor of Jonesboro, GA, City Councilman Alfred Dixon held an organizational meeting at the venue housing Village Talk Radio. Alfred Dixon has always been authentic in his approach to problem solving on behalf of the citizens of Jonesboro.
His engagement hashtag, #ittakesavillageinjonesboro, will provide strategic dimensional plans to elevate the City towards workforce diversity training, purpose-driven experiential education, job skills development, housing, and more. Solving problems for the community will continue to be his trademark, while engaging all community cultures to enable a successful, sustainable city.
Councilman Dixon’s humility and discipline while serving, being committed and consistent, gained him special credibility–from running the campaign for the City Council seat, to being consistent on campaign promises, and during his term.
The village concept seems to be taking shape at the family level with his brother also running for City Council to fill his now vacant seat. Their energy provides a signal to the constituency that service does matter and so does the dream for a cleaner, safer, perpetually empowered city. This is a race the nation will be watching.
