There are few problems, that cannot be turned into opportunities by simply interjecting the appropriate creative and resourceful individuals into the mix. A good Mayor is a connector, and Mayor Dabbs has an incredible ability to connect people with other people, designing solutions for opportunities.

Serving as Mayor since 2011, Jill Dabbs wants Bryant to be a place that continues to grow in the direction of one of the healthiest, smartest, and economically vibrant cities of the 21st century.

Mayor Dabbs has also been able to pass policies like a master Walk Bike Drive master street plan along with a master lighting plan that encourages sprawl repair where needed and better guides new development.

When she is not passionately working with others to build an even better Bryant she is spending time with her family, bicycling with friends, snow skiing or talking about any of the three mentioned above. Energy is her middle name. She loves to travel as well as offer her services and experiences when needed as a presenter on many topics affecting municipalities. Mayor Dabbs recently spoke in Atlanta at the National Association of Chronic Disease Directors where she showcased all that is being done in her amazing, fast growing, friendly city. Just to mention a few recent accomplishments the city adopted its first multimodal transportation plan, passed a bond reissue with 71% voter approval for multiple capital improvements, she was instrumental in the passage of the recent Bryant School Millage and the city in partnership with ARDOT just this week opened new exits to Bryant Parkway which is under design and soon to be under construction.
