Fighting 4 You Jefferson County

We are dedicated to promoting the common good for the residents of Jefferson County and conducting research and publicizing the positions of elected officials concerning issues related to economic prosperity in Jefferson County. 

The Mission

Jefferson County Prosperity supports equal opportunity for all residents of Jefferson County. We believe that economic opportunity is the basis for every resident’s ability to earn more than a living wage, to raise a family and to create the stepping stones for prosperity. We believe in supporting policies that are to the benefit of the collective community.  We strive to support lawful business of all sizes in our county. We seek to simplify the tax code and regulatory environment at both the local and state level in order to foster an environment friendly to entrepreneurs and established businesses equally and those who will benefit from the jobs created by these economic engines. These goals can be achieved through collaboration among all interests in our community – from the arts community to the ag community; the tourism industry to manufacturing and beyond.
