    Mayor Jazzmin Cobble
    www.cobbleformayor.com

    Mrs. Jazzmin Cobble was sworn-in as the second Mayor of Stonecrest on June 17, 2022. 

    Mrs. Jazzmin Cobble is honored and excited to serve as the Mayor for the City of Stonecrest. As a fellow resident, she has a vested interest in seeing that each generation in the City of Stonecrest has the representation, resources, and services to enjoy a quality of life. Ensuring that the city can directly provide these simple yet necessary elements to its residents is of the utmost importance to her.

    During her 5.5 years on City Council, Jazzmin built a reputation for being a strong voice for her constituents while also demanding fiscal responsibility and accountability from the city administration. She dedicated herself to setting up the city government with a foundation of fiduciary integrity and servant leadership. Mayor Cobble led by being vocal about improprieties and vigilant about instituting effective solutions. She worked in partnership with my fellow city council members to implement legislative solutions that have resulted in the unified government you see working today.

    In 2019, she created her signature, annual community event, "Screen on the Green and Entrepreneur Expo" featuring both youth and adult entrepreneurs in Stonecrest with free food, live DJ, children’s activities, live performances by resident artists and a family-friendly movie in the park to culminate the evening. Mayor Cobble has also served as the Chairwoman of the Finance Committee of the City of Stonecrest working closely with the city staff to ensure that contracts and purchases were compliant with state laws and city policies.

    Mayor Cobble believes that future of the city rests in the critical work that lies ahead in rebuilding and reforming Stonecrest. Continuity between both branches of government is the stronghold that will reinstate confidence throughout her beloved community. Under her leadership, the Mayor’s Office works in lockstep with the City Council to advance one unified agenda that will make the city one that everyone can be proud of. Restoring hope to the residents and resetting the level of expectation for the business community helps move the city forward, together. She believes this is accomplished by bolstering sustainable policies, processes, standards, and principles throughout all the lines of service that the city provides.

    Mayor Cobble holds a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from her beloved alma mater, Albany State University. She also holds a Master of Public Administration with an emphasis in Government and Nonprofit Management from DeVry University. Additionally, she holds certifications from the State of Georgia in both Procurement and Fiscal Management.

    Mayor Cobble has served in state government for over 13 years through various state agencies. Currently, she serves this great State of Georgia as the State Director of Fleet Management. Immediately preceding that position, she served as the Operations Manager for the Department of Audits and Accounts.

    Mayor Cobble is a member of the Albany State University National Alumni Association (also DeKalb Alumni Chapter), DeKalb Chapter of the NAACP, DeKalb County Democratic Party Post Seat Hold

    WHERE I COME FROM
    I'm from Greenville, SC. I'm the son of Bernard & Sharon Smith, the wisest folks I know. I have a big little sister named Cassandra who has the cutest dog named Cooper. I was fascinated by Martin Luther King as a child so it was only fitting that I graduated from Morehouse College. There I met my beautiful wife Shun on the library steps and we married on 07/07/07- God's day of completion. We now have 3 little boys, Elijah, Emmanuel, and Ezra. Being there dad is my life and everything I do I do for Shun and the boys. I tell them we groom leaders in this house.
    A THRIVING CAREER
    My background is in marketing. I received my bachelor's degree from Morehouse in Marketing. I dabbled in marketing and advertising for a while, but most of my work was done in the financial banking industry. After my firstborn child, Elijah was in a terrible car accident that left him in a coma for about four months, I never went back to work. He is the soul of our family. He now suffers from Cerebral Palsy. 
    After Elijah came home, I started having my visions and started The Wise Men Group, and although it didn't pay anything it kept me busy. I day trade for a living and work as a consultant for GM. What started as a hobby, I'm also a professional photographer. I own www.CelebrityPhoto.co. You can go there to check out my art or read about my son's story at wwwElijahsLife.com

Bravo

Thanks for taking the time to make this podcast. I recently purchased a townhome in Stonecrest and while I was waiting the 6 months for its completion, I made sure I viewed every YouTube video posted about Stonecrest. I was pleasantly surprised to find your podcast on Apple and immediately binged your episodes. The interviews with the candidates were especially helpful. Keep up the good work! This podcast is needed. Perhaps you can add a little trivia to learn more about the history of the city. I would also love to hear more interviews. Thanks again!
