HUNTINGTON – Mayor Steve Williams announced Tuesday, April 15, that he has received a letter of resignation from Brandi Jacobs-Jones, the director of administration and finance for the City of Huntington

Jacobs-Jones’ resignation takes effect April 30. She won't be going far away. She's becoming Marshall University's Vice President of Operations. She replaces Karen Kirtley.

“I have a great deal of admiration for Brandi, her professional talents and her soul,” Williams said. “She has effectively served the citizens of this city. Fortunately, she will remain in Huntington, and we expect to call upon her talents as we continue to pursue excellence.”

Jacobs-Jones entered city government in 2004 when she was elected as the City Council representative for District 5. Former Mayor David Felinton hired her as the director of administration and finance in October 2007.


The director of administration and finance oversees the divisions of Finance, Human Resources, IT and Purchasing. Williams said he will consider his options of filling the position in the coming days.
