State of the City Address 2019 – Jackson
Feb 20 @ 6:30 pm
State of the City Address 2019 - Jackson

Last year, Mayor Derek Dobies was the first Mayor of Jackson to deliver a State of the City Address. That tradition continues in 2019, with the second annual State of the City taking place at the Martin Luther King Community Center on Wednesday, February 20.

Jackson residents are welcome to attend this event. Doors open at 6:00 p.m. with the program starting at 6:30 p.m.

The Martin Luther King Community Center is located at 1107 Adrian St. in Jackson. Unlike last year’s State of the City, tickets WILL NOT be required for entry.

Mayor Dobies says for this year’s speech, he intends to reflect on goals for Jackson laid out last year, and set new priorities. The mayor says he chose the Martin Luther King Community Center as this year’s State of the City venue to highlight ongoing efforts to reinvest in Jackson’s south side neighborhood.

If you cannot attend, you can watch a livestream of the address on the The City of Jackson, Michigan Facebook page.
