Jeremy Burke, Ward One Alderman

Jeremy Burke, business owner of Bay Books, is Ward One Alderman in Waveland, Mississippi, and he has a plan for steering Waveland in the right direction. Jeremy sat down with Coastal 90 writer, Joshua Holmes, recently to discuss his goals and hopes for Waveland for the his term of office. Jeremy really wants to be a voice for Ward one Waveland. I have to say that as a resident of Ward One, I already feel the effects of his actions in Waveland. Jeremy has been committed to helping restore and grow Waveland for many years. As a graduate from St. Stanislaus in Bay St Louis and the University of Southern Mississippi, Jeremy is familiar with the area and has lived in Ward One for many years.


Jeremy’s main conversation with me was about improving the quality of life for Waveland residents and keeping Waveland beautiful. Jeremy really wants to focus on infrastructure and putting local Waveland businesses to work. He wants to make it very easy for businesses to move to our beautiful city as well. If we are in need of new and innovative services and jobs, Jeremy wants to welcome them with open arms. Affordable living is another main point of focus for Mr. Burke. “Waveland needs to make sure we are supporting and helping families afford to live here through cost of living, as well as public works and jobs,” Mr. Burke said. “My hope is to bring a vision to the City of Waveland for growing and improving our way of life,” Jeremy added.


Jeremy Burke also spoke to me regarding the empty lots and structures needing repair or reconstitution. “We need to focus on local businesses and bringing people back to Waveland,” Jeremy said. Mr. Burke really wants to help grow jobs and alleviate financial strain on the families of Waveland. He has ideas for economic development that could really help grow and prosper Waveland for years to come.


Jeremy is a member of the many civic, professional, and alumni organizations. Mr. Burke’s commitment to Waveland’s return on investment is paramount to his plans for the future. As a businessman in Hancock County and a family man at home, Jeremy Burke has the innovative tenacity to get the job done and make Waveland strong!
