Alderperson Ward 2

More Information



A long-time resident, Jerry Klipsch and his wife purchased property in [what is now known as] Byrnes Mill 44 years ago where they would later build their home (in 1973).  He ran for aldermen just to learn what the City was all about and ended up staying over 20 years now. "I like the fact that as residents we get to know our police officers in a friendly and on a first name basis,"  he said.  "In the past, the same thing has been true of our public works personnel, especially with our retired director.   I expect that will continue in the future."  Two main services that Mr. Klipsch feels make the City attractive to developers are the ever-improving Police and Public Works Departments.  He explained, "Our homeowners need to take a proprietary interest in their City because, for many, it is probably their biggest investment."  His vision for the City is to keep the country atmosphere and keep it from getting too "cityfide".

More Information



Since moving to Byrnes Mill in October 2013, Jason Matthews and his wife, Ali, have had two children—Juliet (4) and Abram (2).  Having both grown up in smaller towns, the fact that Byrnes Mill is much more rural than the majority of other towns in the area was a draw to raising a family here.  Jason was appointed to fill the vacancy for Ward 3 through April 2019 saying, “I thought it would be a pretty good way for me to participate even more in the City.”
