Meet the Mayor

Dear New Resident,

Welcome to Rutherfordton! We are so happy that you are here. As you’re settling into your new home, we hope that you’re finding your way around the community, meeting other residents, and enjoying what the town has to offer.

Your local government is here to help you get everything you need by providing the guide below. The Town staff works hard to provide residents with high levels of service in all that we do, so you should expect excellence from each and every one of us. Since we don’t directly provide all of the services you use in your daily life, we work hard to make sure that we partner with the organizations and agencies around us to provide you with seamless customer service.

Though our town is small, we believe that there is something for everyone. Our town staff has worked hard to create an inclusive environment to support our residents. Our goal is to ensure that residents experience the quality of life they deserve. Safe, livable neighborhoods; recreation and leisure activities; and a strong local economy are just a few key objectives we always keep in mind when serving you. We are truly here for you. Keeping these goals at the forefront, we strive to live up to our motto of being “A Minted Original.”

Again, welcome to Rutherfordton, and we are pleased to have you join our community. Please don’t hesitate to call upon your local government for any questions you may have. We hope you love Rutherfordton as much as we do.

No matter what you call it- Rutherfordton, Ruff’ton, Rolphton, Rudder4ton, Rullerfourton- we’re glad you’re home.


Mayor Jimmy Dancy
