Mayor Jazzmin Cobble
Mayor Jazzmin Cobble
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
