Speaker Tim Jones has issued the following statement in response to today’s special elections held in three districts throughout the state, which resulted in the restoration of the House supermajority.
“After months of waiting for Governor Nixon to call a special election to fill vacancies in the House, today Republicans won two of these seats, restoring our record 110 member House supermajority. Next month, the House will reconvene for veto session, and we will put this supermajority to good use for the people of our great state,” said Speaker Jones.
Tim Jones was elected to the Missouri House of Representatives in 2006 and was elected as Speaker of the House in 2012. During his time in the House, Tim has become known as a consistent conservative, passing major pieces of conservative legislation including the Missouri Health Care Freedom Act, multiple bills defending our Second Amendment rights, the largest tax cut in Missouri history, and a variety of pro-life measures which have made Missouri one of the safest places in the nation for unborn children.
Speaker Jones currently represents the 110th District, including parts of St. Louis and Franklin Counties. In addition to his legislative duties, he is an attorney at the Chesterfield law firm of Doster Ullom, LLC. He and his wife, Suzanne, live in Eureka with their two daughters, Katie and Abby.
