As Mayor of Jefferson, I invite you to consider making Jefferson your home.

Jefferson is a great place to raise a family! Our small town quality of life is safe and friendly. Our schools and health care are excellent. Our new Greene County Early Learning Center provides education-based child care. Our parks and recreational programs give kids and adults plenty of free time choices. Our location within an hour of Des Moines and Ames gives easy access to additional cultural events and attractions, while our distance eliminates the hassles of metropolitan living.
