Cecilton is a place my wife and I love to call home and have for the last 20 years. I have been an active member of the Cecilton Town Council since 2002 and the Planning and Zoning Commission prior to that.  I’m a 16 year member of Station 1 – Cecilton Volunteer Fire Department where I serve on the board. I’m an avid hunter and very much enjoy watching my son Steven play football.  I work to make things happen for our communities youth having served on dance committees and boosters.

I’ve been very fortunate to have lived the majority of my life in Cecil County.  While I love to travel, I enjoy returning home just as much.  I can’t think of a better place for my husband and I to be raising our boys.   When I’m not spending time at Town Hall I can be found watching my boys play football, baseball or wrestling.  I’m so excited to see what the future holds.   Cecilton is a place where it’s still important to check on your neighbors, keep the community clean, welcome a stranger and continue to build a firm foundation for the next generation.   I will continue to preserve the integrity of this community by investing in all that makes this community great.  In the future, I envision streets lined with benches and trash receptacles, community activities in the park, lots of landscaping and controlled growth that allows Cecilton to keep its small town charm.  I will do my part in keeping Cecilton friendly and live by its motto “The Way Life Should Be”

As a resident of 15 years, I’m honored to call Cecilton my home. Having served on council for 9 years I’m passionate about preserving everything that makes Cecilton great for my children and yours. When I’m not at Town Hall I can be found coaching for Bohemia Manor Junior Football or Chesapeake City Little League. I spend a lot of time investing in our community’s youth. I believe in making a difference and work everyday to do so. I’m a proud Veteran of the United States Coast Guard. When you see me in town please don’t hesitate to share your vision for Cecilton. 

Bubby Jackson, Maintenance SupervisorBubby Jackson, Maintenance Supervisor

Born and raised in Cecil county, Bubby Jackson is new to the Cecilton team. He moved to Galena 2 years ago with his wife Lauren, who he met in high school and his two sons, Gavin (8) and Emmett (6).

During the summer you can usually find Bubby on the rivers of the Chesapeake Bay crabbing with his family and friends. His goal is to always find a crab bigger than the last and his mission is to not leave the river unless the basket is packed. Bubby also coaches his boy’s baseball team in Millington. During the winter he is coaching indoor soccer with his boy’s and trying to teach them the guitar.

Bubby has an old soul; he comes to us with years of experience as a guitarist and can play many instruments. He loves blues and rock, especially Hendrix, Vaughan and CCR. Look on his face book to catch the date of his next show.

Husband: John  |  Children: Jennifer, Michael, Jessie, Robbie

I was born and raised in a small town in upstate NY that was a lot like Cecilton. As soon as we moved into our house on Main St I felt right at home. I absolutely love being a part of this community. I have served on the Zoning Board of Appeals, the Cecilton Board of Elections, and am looking forward to contributing my time as a Town Council member. To me, it is extremely important to shepherd our local youth towards becoming strong, independent, and productive members of society. I work towards that goal by working with youth organizations such as scouting and Civil Air Patrol. I am also active in local faith organizations and a member of the Cecilton Lions Club. I work as a mental health counselor in Delaware and substitute teach at Bo Manor from time to time.

In my free time I enjoy putting around the Bo on our pontoon boat, backpacking, camping, and occasionally riding my motorcycle.

I am excited for this chapter and look forward to serving this incredible community in support of our motto: “The Way Life Should Be.” Please feel free to let me know the best way I can serve your needs in this town.

I was a Rising Sun High School graduate and once I graduated from college, I became a Cecil County Public School teacher. I taught in Elkton Middle, Chesapeake City Elementary, and finished my career with 16 years at Cecilton Elementary.  In July of 2017, I retired from teaching and was looking for a new career. I love small towns and the sense of friendship and community that are within them.  I have always liked the community of Cecilton and was excited to continue to work here. It is comforting to see familiar faces and meet new ones.  I hope to be part of keeping Cecilton friendly and beautiful.
