By |

mabrie_jacksonThe North Texas Commission has named its first female president and CEO. She is Mabrie Jackson, the former Plano City Council member who lost a raucous GOP primary for state House District 66 in April to Van Taylor. Jackson (pictured) succeeds Dan Petty, who’s moving into a “consultant’s role” in connection with the 2011 Super Bowl. Petty served 17 years as head man at the commission, which is a nonprofit consortium of North Texas businesses, cities, counties, chambers of commerce, economic development entities and higher education institutions.
