Mayor- J. Nicole Jackson
The mayor is the city's chief executive officer. The mayor presides over council meetings and is generally recognized as the ceremonial and governmental head of the city for most purposes. The mayor's most important duty is to carry out the legislative responsibilities he or she shares with other members of council identifying the needs of the city, developing programs to satisfy those needs, and evaluating the extent to which municipal services satisfactorily reflect the policy goals of the council.
