Campaign themes

Customer Focused

  • Asking Why Families Choose LPS (and Why Some Don't)
  • Motivating Students and Families to Take Ownership of Their Own Education
  • Providing a Fulfilling, Rich, and Varied Set of Educational Opportunities and Activities at Every Grade and at Each School
  • Creating Early Student Awareness about What is Possible after LPS and Communicating to Students What It Takes to Get There

Taxpayer Focused

  • Listening to the Concerns of Our Community
  • Recognizing the Economic Challenges Facing Our Community
  • Developing Self-Sufficient Individuals, Responsible Citizens, and Future Leaders

Balanced Approach

  • Balancing Educators' Needs with Our Community's Limited Resources
  • Balancing Good Intentions with Sound Reasoning
  • Balancing Short-term Workloads with Long-term Initiatives
  • Balancing a Working Knowledge of LPS with an Independent Perspective that Looks Beyond the Education System

Stance on Amendment 66

Jones was opposed to Amendment 66, which was reject by voters in this election. His view was that the increased tax rate would be detrimental to job growth and a burden to tax payers. He also stated that under Amendment 66, "LPS residents will pay substantially more in taxes than our school district will receive back from the program."[6]

What was at stake?

Three seats on the Littleton Public School Board were up for election. Current board members, Board President Bob Colwell, Board Treasurer Renée Howell and Board Assistant Secretary Sue Chandler finished their second four-year terms on the Board and could not run again due to term limits. As a result, all three members elected to the board were new.
