Weekly Recap


News From The Office Of Deputy Majority Leader Brenden Jones

It has been an honor to represent the 46th House District in the General Assembly, and it was a privilege today to file for re-election to seek a fourth term as your Representative. My district has changed quite a bit over the years, and this new district makes Columbus County whole again and part of Robeson as well.

I’ve been fortunate during my time in the House to have been entrusted with the gavel to two committees as well as the Deputy Majority Leader of the Republican caucus. As a small businessman, I’ve been able to help right some wrongs with the behemoth that is the government to make it easier for all across the state. There is much more work to be done and I look forward to enacting more reforms to benefit everyone.

This campaign is going to be yet another grueling undertaking, and I deeply appreciate all the well wishes, prayers, and words of encouragement already. I couldn’t do this without my incredible family, and it is for them that I charge once more unto the breech.

We are now accepting applications for the 50th Annual Youth Legislative Assembly! If you know someone interested in politics, send them to this link and apply to be a part of a great tradition.

With the House in skeleton sessions until December 30th, this will most likely be the final Dispatch until after the holidays. I hope you and yours have a very Merry Christmas and have a safe and Happy New Year!
