Jeff Edwards was hired to work for the City of Mar­i­on on Jan­u­ary 2nd, 2017. As the Direc­tor of the Trans­porta­tion Depart­ment and the Mar­i­on Tran­sit Sys­tem, Jeff Edwards brings fun and excite­ment into his depart­ment and into the community.

Edwards took a kind­ness move­ment that orig­i­nat­ed in Plain­field, and brought it to Mar­i­on through a kind­ness event which was held on Sep­tem­ber 18th, 2018. On that day, all Trans­porta­tion employ­ees wore shirts hand­made by the group of chil­dren from Plain­field that say a sim­ple mes­sage, Just Be Kind.’ Through­out the day, employ­ees served cake & punch at the Down­town Bus Depot, and gave away Just Be Kind’ items to the community.

He had also imple­ment­ed a Hawai­ian Day over the sum­mer which served as a way for both the depart­ment and the com­mu­ni­ty to have some fun.

I love how he pro­motes great morale with­in his depart­ment. He also gives them new train­ing oppor­tu­ni­ties, and dri­ves his work­force to be of high stan­dard in the trans­porta­tion field.” – Lay­la Price-Bod­kin, Direc­tor of Mar­ket­ing & Com­mu­ni­ty Relations

Jeff Edwards exem­pli­fies a true leader. He is always pro­vid­ing guid­ance and sup­port for his employ­ees and is a true ser­vant leader when it comes to work­ing with employ­ees and the cit­i­zens of Mar­i­on.” – May­or Jess Alumbaugh
