Rep. Brad Jones Re-Elected Minority Leader

Representative Bradley H. Jones, Jr. (R-North Reading) was recently re-elected by his Republican colleagues to serve a seventh term as Minority Leader of the Massachusetts House of Representatives.

“As we embark upon the 189th Biennium of the Great and General Court of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, I am pleased to announce my re-election as Leader of the House Republican Caucus,” said Representative Jones. “Having the resounding support of the largest House Republican Caucus in my tenure as Minority Leader means a tremendous amount to me, and I thank my colleagues for their continued confidence in my ability to lead our Caucus.”

While Representative Jones anticipates a busy legislative agenda, he remains focused on working with the incoming Baker Administration to advance an agenda that residents and small-businesses from the Berkshires to the outer Cape and Islands and points in between, regardless of party affiliation, can all agree upon – making Massachusetts great.

“The swearing-in of Governor Charlie Baker and Lieutenant Governor Karyn Polito is an extremely momentous occasion for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. With a combined vision of making Massachusetts great, our state will only benefit from the guidance and leadership of the Governor and Lieutenant Governor,” said House Minority Leader Brad Jones. “Governor Baker’s outlook for Massachusetts is one of optimism and promise. His aggressive plan to create jobs and deliver a world-class education to children across the state is the exact tone and direction that this state’s residents so desperately need and want from the incoming administration.”

Jones, a North Reading native, was first elected to the House of Representatives in 1994.  This past November he was elected to his eleventh term representing the 20th Middlesex District on Beacon Hill and continues to maintain his perfect voting record.  Representative Jones has cast 5,995 consecutive roll call votes and hasn’t missed a single vote in his nearly 21 years in the Legislature.
