Meet: Nicole Jones

Mar 7, 2024 | by

Sarah Huffman at Richmond Magazine has a nice interview with interim City Council 9th District representative Nicole Jones:

RM: What do you hope to achieve during your time on the council?

Jones: The 9th District is an incredibly diverse section of the city with equally diverse needs. I aim to create an environment of citizen empowerment for all residents and to work collaboratively with the administration to meet their needs. I will also use my experience as a proven changemaker and consensus builder to work to address pressing issues present across the city but increasingly so in the 9th District, such as speed mitigation, deconcentration of poverty, infrastructure improvement, affordable housing and activities for young residents.

Jones was appointed the City Council in December to replace Michael Jones, who vacated the seat after being elected to represent the House of Delegates 77th District. Ms.Jones was previously the 9th District’s School Board representative.
