Jenkins said he was attracted to Broken Arrow because of the opportunity to work and manage a growing city with a multitude of opportunities.
“When I selected public administration as a career, I chose it in order to improve the quality of life for the citizens I serve,” Jenkins said. “I became interested in the Assistant City Manager position with Broken Arrow because it provides me the chance to work closely with Thom Moton, who is a highly experienced public administrator. I believe together we can use our skills, experiences, and public administration tools as a team to effectively manage the City into the future.”
