SACRAMENTO – Assemblyman Brian Jones, R-Santee, today announced that Assembly Republican Leader Connie Conway, R-Tulare, has promoted him from Assistant Republican Leader to Chair of the Assembly Republican Caucus.
“I am honored to have been appointed Caucus Chair by Republican Leader Conway to help advance the shared principles of our caucus – creating jobs, keeping taxes low and reforming a broken government,” said Jones. “These are the principles that a majority of Californians share, especially among the East County constituents that I represent. I look forward to serving them in this new position.”
The Republican Caucus Chair plays an integral role on the Assembly Republican leadership team. The Caucus Chair assists the Leader in advancing the Republican policy agenda and achieving the Caucus’ political goals. Additionally, the Caucus Chair regularly communicates with Republican leaders throughout California on key legislative issues and party matters.
Assemblyman Jones represents the 77th Assembly District and is presently Vice Chair of the Assembly Human Services Committee. He also serves on the Assembly Legislative Ethics, Budget, Judiciary, and Water, Parks and Wildlife Committees, as well as the Select Committees on San Diego Trade, Tourism and Job Creation, and Job Creation for the New Economy. Before his election to the Assembly, he served as a Member of the Santee City Council.
“As Republicans continue to serve as the last line of defense for California taxpayers, it is imperative that we stand united in our goal to get more Californians working again,” said Assembly Republican Leader Connie Conway. “Brian Jones is a strong and principled leader for our Caucus. He has fought to advance our common-sense Republican solutions for true pension reform and balancing our budget while protecting our students, and will continue to serve our Caucus well in his new leadership position.”
