Salary Expenditures

During the 2011 campaign, I made a public pledge to give half of my salary back to the city, and to give the other half to local non-profits. You can find links to the literature on my pay pledge here: Front / Back. Below, you'll find out how I am putting half of that salary to good use for city taxpayers, and what local non-profits the other half of that money is going towards. 

Here's some information on a few of those organizations:

  • Jackson Eyeopeners Lions Club: Lions are best known for fighting blindness, but we also volunteer for many different kinds of community projects – including caring for the environment, feeding the hungry and aiding seniors and the disabled. 
  • AWARE, Inc: Aware, Inc. strives to eliminate domestic and sexual violence while promoting social change and empowering survivors by offering shelter and services in the Jackson community. 
  • FOP Local 70: The Fraternal Order of Police is the nation's largest police organization with a membership of 310,000. Founded in 1915, the F.O.P. represents professional, full-time officers from all agencies of law enforcement.  
  • Jackson Downtown Kiwanis Club: The Kiwanis Club of Jackson has a long history of helping children and our community and of having fun. The club gives back about $80,000 each year, whether it be providing children with shoes and boots, renovating the Kiwanis Park or planting hundreds of flags at local homes and businesses.  
  • Arts & Cultural Alliance of Jackson County: The Art sand Cultural Alliance is a non-profit organization created to strengthen, support, and promote arts and culture throughout Jackson County.
