Elliott Jones would like to announce his candidacy for Luverne City Council District Four. Jones currently serves Crenshaw County as the Emergency Management Agency (EMA) director, but would now like to take a position as one of the city’s leaders.

“Luverne needs experienced leaders who come to the table with ideas, not ideology,” Jones said.

“I look forward to being an independent voice, while working in a collaborative manner, and will represent our district, embracing our youth, our seniors and all other citizens throughout our neighborhoods with dedication and hard work.”

Jones stated that he has been an independent voice in public service for over 25 years, and will bring that independence to the Luverne City Council, as well as his experience and knowledge that he has obtained throughout the years.

Jones believes that some of the most vital needs of the community are enhanced public safety, infrastructure improvements and community outreach programs. Funding for these types of improvements can be secured through federal grants, which happens to be one of his specialties, he says.

Jones says that if allowed the opportunity, he will focus on doing whatever it takes to help advance the city and help it become the best that it can possibly be.

“I care deeply about our community. I consider serving on the council not as a political decision, but as a public service for our citizens,” Jones said.

“I want to do all I can to contribute to preserving all that’s great about Luverne, and to making it an even better place to live, work and raise a family in the future. I appreciate your consideration, and please remember to come out on August 23 to cast your vote. Basically, it’s all about us doing what we can to help take care of one another.”
