“It’s hard to believe that in less than one year from the last election, that I will be launching a new campaign, but let me be clear, regardless of how the appointment process plays out, I intend to seek the Republican Nomination to fill this trial court vacancy. I still believe it is more important than ever to make sure we elect candidates to office who share our core conservative values. If elected Judge, I will serve the citizens of Rutherford and Cannon Counties by upholding the laws of Tennessee, protecting the rights granted by our State Constitution, and the Constitution of this great Nation,” Jones continued.

The general election will be held on August 1st with early voting July 12 - 27, 2024. The 16th Judicial District contains all of Rutherford and Cannon Counties.

“I was honored by the support across the 16th Judicial District in 2022. Our message of electing someone to the bench who shares our core conservative values resonated with over 12,800 voters, and I’m excited to spread that message again in this election,” Jones concluded.
