Biography

State government is broken. We need a champion who will fight for us: Democrat Jolanda Jones. Republicans have broken health care and public education. They’ve cut the funding that pays to keep us safe from crime – and then lied about it. They’ve made a mess of the economy and made corporations and campaign contributors even richer. They can’t even keep the lights on when it freezes.

Republicans may have broken our government but they can’t break Jolanda Jones. Authentic and unafraid, Jolanda will never stop fighting for us. Jolanda rose from a childhood of poverty to the Academic All American Hall of Fame, a successful career as an attorney reforming our criminal justice system, and a life of public service fighting for our kids, families and seniors.

Now Jolanda is carrying the torch to Austin to be a champion for affordable health care, better jobs, safer streets and stronger schools – for all of us.

Jolanda will use her proven experience as a successful city councilwoman, school board member, Democratic Party leader and devoted mom to keep our families safe – not just from crime but also from the politicians in Austin whose first priority is cozying up to Donald Trump.

Jolanda Jones always fights hard for Democrats, just as she did as the elected Democratic Party committeewoman for Senate District 13. She will do more than just stand up to Republicans – she’ll run circles around them. On March 1, vote for a champion: Democrat Jolanda Jones for State Representative, District 147.
