ASSEMBLY MEMBER JONES NAMED DEPUTY FLOOR MANAGERCONTACT: Bob Giovati (916) 837-0340 December 13, 2010
SACRAMENTO – Assembly Member Brian Jones, R-Santee, today announced that he has been appointed by Assembly Republican Leader Connie Conway, of Tulare, to serve in an important leadership role as Deputy Floor Manager for the 2010-12 legislative session.
“I am honored to be appointed Deputy Floor Manager, and to work with my Republican colleagues to protect California taxpayers and root out waste, fraud and abuse,” said Assemblyman Jones. “We need to get government out of the way of the private sector if we are to help create jobs and put people back to work. This will be one of my top priorities in my new role as a part of the Assembly Republican Leadership team.”
The Deputy Floor Manager works closely with the Assistant Republican Floor Leader helping to ensure the smooth operation of the business of the Legislature during Assembly session, and that common-sense measures receive full and fair consideration during legislative debate.
Prior to his election to the State Assembly, Jones served on the Santee City Council for eight years. Under his leadership, Santee has become one of the safest, most family-oriented communities in San Diego County. As a Vice Mayor and City Councilman, he led the city’s planning and approval of new retail projects, the Town Center Corporate Campus, long awaited move-up housing and the new YMCA Aquatic Center and Santee Sports Park. An active community volunteer, he also serves on the board of the directors of the local Boys and Girls Club. Jones and his wife, Heather, have three children.
“As a city council member, Brian Jones earned a well-deserved reputation as a champion for taxpayers and a staunch opponent of unsustainable government spending,” said Assembly Republican Leader Connie Conway. “In his new role, Brian will bring that strong track record of leadership to Sacramento, fighting hard for our common-sense Republican ideas and protecting Californians from any attempt to raise their taxes. I am pleased to have Brian serve on my leadership team and look forward to working closely with him to advance conservative ideas.”
Assembly Member Jones represents the 77th Assembly District, which includes the communities of Alpine, Borrego Springs, Bostonia, Casa de Oro – Mount Helix, Crest, El Cajon, Granite Hills, Harbison Canyon, Jamul, La Mesa, Lakeside, Ramona, Rancho San Diego, San Diego, San Diego Country Estates, Santee and Winter Gardens.
