Jones County and Gray elected officials met with a state representative and senator last week to discuss how the state could help with local issues.

All of Jones County’s state delegation was invited to the Nov. 12 session, but Rep. Bubber Epps and Sen. David Lucas were the only ones able to attend. Rep. Susan Holmes had a family health emergency, and Sen. Bert Jones had a previous commitment.

Jones County’s Board of Commissioners was represented by Chairman Preston Hawkins and commissioners Jonathan Pitts and Daylon Martin. The Board of Education was represented by Chairman Ginger Bailey and board members Deloras Moon and Larry Haskins.

The City of Gray was represented by councilmen David Tufts and Benny Gray and Mayor-elect Stephen Tingen.

Sheriff Butch Reece represented the Jones County Sheriff’s Department, and Donavan Head attended representing Congressman Austin Scott.

Following a welcome by Hawkins, Epps was the first to speak. He gave an overview of how he expects the 2014 legislative session to shape up.
