Jones to serve out former Councilman Powell’s remaining term through 2019.
Lawrenceville Mayor and Council have named Victoria Jones to serve out former Councilman Powell’s remaining term in Post Two (2). This term will expire December 31, 2019 and is up for election in the fall of this year with the new 4-year term beginning January 1, 2020. Council reviewed a number of letters from qualified candidates and chose Jones for her extensive public sector experience and recent engagement in local affairs.
“As a resident of Lawrenceville, I have a keen interest in the growth of our community and its impact on our infrastructure,” said Jones. “I am excited about the City’s effort to become a walkable activity hub and look forward to serving our community as a voice for the people and a leader who desires excellence above all.”
Jones comes to the Council with work and volunteer experience in public sector from both Gwinnett County and the City of Lawrenceville. She is a retiree of 26 years with Gwinnett County Water Resources, maintains a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from Shorter University and is a graduate of the leadership program, Glance Gwinnett. Jones also serves on both the Lawrenceville Development Authority and the Downtown Development Authority of Lawrenceville Georgia where she worked with other board members to support the progress of projects such as the South Lawn development, the Lawrenceville Performing Arts Center expansion and the future Downtown hotel and parking deck initiative. She is a member of the Lawrenceville Neighborhood Alliance and resides in the City as a registered voter with her husband, Clay Jones.
Jones will begin her appointment as an official Council member at the regularly scheduled work session on February 20.
