ABOUT VICTOR JONES

THAT'S MY KIND OF MARINE...THAT'S MY KIND OF MAYOR

My entire adult life has been dedicated to serving others. I enlisted in the Marine Corps one month after graduating high school. I spent the next 13 years in the Corps and received my honorable discharge as a Sgt. I am a disabled veteran, but I have not let my disabilities prevent me from using God's gifts to make my community a better place. I spent the next 13 years serving my customers through my business...Royal Limousine. Over the last 6 years, I have tirelessly served the citizens of Ward 5 and the city as a whole as the representative for Ward 5. I have utilized my leadership experience to work with the other 8 council members over two terms to move this city in a positive direction. The role of the Mayor is critical to the successful functioning of an effective city council. We must "hire"/elect the most qualified candidate for the job. Experience and wisdom are essential to leadership and possessing the ability to relate to all of our precious citizens. I know that I am that candidate and I will honor and treasure the importance of the position.

I have over 30 years of business owner experience and have employed hundreds of people over those years. I've tackled nearly every challenge that a business owner and leader can face in this world. I know serving in the role of Mayor will be a challenge, but if I can survive the trials of war, I believe I can lead the next council to greater heights.
