Issues

Campaign themes

2012

Jones' website highlighted the following themes:[1]

  • Fighting Foreclosures: ."..as State Senator I will crack down on the illegal foreclosure practices that have ravaged our community."
  • Investing in Small Businesses: ."..I believe we have the people to get our economic engine moving again, but we need to foster that growth with continued incentives and innovative solutions. We also need to ensure our workforce is educated in the new high tech, bio tech and engineering jobs of the future. We will only attract and keep businesses in Nevada if we invest in improved K-12 and higher education."
  • Educating A 21st Century Workforce: ."..We must fund education so that teachers have the resources in the classroom and students have ever opportunity to excel. By investing in better schools, we will attract companies to invest in creating jobs in Nevada."
  • Energy Independence and Conservation: ."..The economic benefits of protected lands can not be overlooked and we need to make sure we invest in promoting our Nevada public lands as tourist destinations. I also believe in harnessing the natural resources we enjoy in Nevada--solar, geothermal, wind. These can be great job creators, not just to construct and run the plants, but also in the manufacturing of equipment such as solar panels and wind turbines. We need to cut the red tape that stifles renewable energy development and work to create a comprehensive plan for the state that identifies locations suitable for renewable energy projects and then puts them on the fast track"
