The City of Pacific needs strong leadership and experience through individuals that can effectively get the job done. I was appointed to City Council in 2013 and again in 2014 and was elected in 2015. I have spent the last six years serving you on City Council, and my record proves my dedication to making Pacific a city that one wants to live, work and raise a family in.


Our city is growing fast and is ever changing, allowing for a better future for us all. Your support would allow me to continue assisting and moving our city forward.


My goal is to continue to make city leaders accountable for its spending and to keep it on track with future endeavors seeing to it that your tax dollars are spent efficiently. It would be my honor to continue to serve you, and I would be privileged to earn your vote.

My name is Jaylynn, my family and I are residents of Pacific. It’s my home, my community, bringing me to the decision to run for City Council. My goal is to be an active member in this city’s government. In this position I recognize there are current issues we need to address. At the same time, there’s the bigger picture of ongoing city improvements, growth, safety and welfare for Pacific. As a council member, I want you to know, if it’s important to you, it’s important to me. I live here too so I’m asking for your vote to keep and maintain Pacific as our proud home.


Work: I have 14 years of experience in the construction industry, leading, bringing work crews together, meeting contract requirements and deadlines.
