Mayor Mark’s Remarks

January 2, 2020

Happy New Year!

I hope this finds you in good health and ready for a prosperous 2020.

The City of Newton, Jasper County, Jasper Economic Development, Inc. (JEDI), Unit 1, Chamber of Commerce and Tourism have all joined forces to lead some serious planning for the next decade. All governmental entities in Jasper County will be invited to send representation as well as any interested citizen and/or business person. There will be several meetings, so come for one or all with positive ideas for the future. The name and slogan for these gatherings and eventual plans for our future is Jasper Together “Pathways to Progress”. I can’t take credit for the name, but it is kind of catchy.

The holidays were such a blur, I didn’t come up with my New Years resolution(s). I’m hoping to keep them longer than last year. LOL!

As always, Catch the Spirit! Live the Dream!

Mark Bolander, Mayor

City of Newton
