Jones' website highlighted the following campaign themes:
Education vs Politics
- Excerpt: "As a former instructor I understand how hard it is to teach in large groups. It does not allow for special attention to the students and the ability to teach the different learning styles. Good education has always proven to provide a strong economy. Let's work together to restore education in North Carolina."
- Excerpt: "It is my intention to hold community meetings when elected. This will enable me to serve the citizens in my district by having an open dialect. I plan to have a website where citizens can easily communicate their problems and concerns and have them addressed as quick as possible."
Agriculture = Jobs
- Excerpt: "Once I take office, I will work on bipartisan legislation that will create immediate jobs for hundreds if not thousands of sustainable jobs in North Carolina. This bill will not raise taxes but utilize funds from the NCDOT budget and other areas to offer past, present and future farmers resources like low interest loans, crop co-op and grants."
- Excerpt: "When elected I will begin working on the people's agenda. While in today's legislature, political parties are split down the aisle. No one wants to work with the opposing party. I plan to work hard on non partisan legislation that will create jobs and opportunities for North Carolinians through out the state."
