Candidate has right skills to serve

I support Harold Jones II as our next state senator. It has truly been an honor and privilege to observe and get to know Harold for many years.


One aspect that has always impressed me is Harold's unwavering commitment to his family, community and profession. A graduate of Glenn Hills Comprehensive High School, he implemented the Harold Jones Social Studies Award, which goes to a senior planning to major in political science in college. This shows his commitment to his community and his willingness to motivate and cultivate a new generation of potential public servants.

This example also serves as a small sample of just how Harold views his role in the Augusta community -- a role based on giving back and helping others. His passion and selflessness is certainly a rare commodity in a political and cultural climate of cynicism. He has proven his ability to work with others, completing training for both Leadership Augusta and Leadership Georgia, and serving as president of the Greater Augusta Arts Council.

Lastly, Harold has the experience to be our next state senator -- serving for many years as solicitor general, overseeing a department that handles more than 35,000 criminal cases per year. He has a commitment to faith and family, and an unwavering support and dedication to community and profession.

The people of Augusta and the state of Georgia will be well-served when Harold Jones II is sworn in as the next state senator for District 22.
