Jewell Jones is the newest Michigan State Representative, before even graduating college at the University of Michigan-Dearborn. Jones was selected to replace the late Judy Plawecki, as soon as he got back from his military assignment.
Proceeding with a campaign, Jones won the 2016 election. The Inkster native has really big ideas while in office. He plans on working on bill and legislatures on sexual assault on college campuses, cyber security, and criminal reform as well.
“My broad plans to increase capacity and engagement. Within being in the democratic party as well in general, and really focusing on getting young people, not necessarily just in office, but engaged in general and getting a diverse and inclusive crowd,” said Jones.
Until graduating from University of Michigan this May, Jones will be balancing his position, classes, and commuting to Lansing.
