Elizabeth Jones, Virginia Representative
|Virginia House of Delegates, District 16|
|Place of birth||New York, NY|
Jones holds an associate's degree, a bachelor's degree, and two master's degrees. Jones worked in the New York public school system as a classroom teacher, district coordinator, and assistant principle. Jones worked in public education for 32 years, and also worked for 25 years as a licensed real estate broker and businessperson.
Jones's website highlighted the following campaign themes:
Excerpt: "Elizabeth would bring common sense to Richmond and bring attention to the suffering of the 16th District. Through her efforts Elizabeth would fight to bring a 21st century economy to the people of Southside, an economy that will stay in America and more specifically the 16th District instead of escaping overseas to places like China for cheap labor."
Excerpt: " For too long she has seen politicians push standardized tests, larger class sizes, and cuts in teacher’s salaries to only improve their poll numbers. The days of using the 16th District’s children as pawns in Richmond’s political games are over. Elizabeth brings an educator’s mind and experience to the conversation on the 16th District’s schools and will fight for smaller class sizes, better paid teachers, and a renewed emphasis on students and their development, not SOLs or other standardized tests."
- Uranium Mining
Excerpt: "Elizabeth Jones has and will continue to fight against lifting the uranium mining ban in Virginia as the 16th District’s Delegate. The 16th District’s natural beauty and the health of the people of Southside VA will not be sacrificed for sheer profit and business interests on Elizabeth’s watch. Uranium mining would be a job killer for the 16th District and impact the health of future generations of Virginians in Southside. Keeping uranium mining out of Virginia and the 16th District is not only the right decision morally but financially."
Jones ran in the 2013 election for Virginia House of Delegates District 16. Jones ran unopposed in the June 11 Democratic primary. She was defeated by Les R. Adams (R) in the general election on November 5, 2013.
