By Staff | Mar 17, 2016

State Representative Megan Jones (R-Sioux Rapids) has filed nomination petitions to seek re-election to the Iowa House. Jones, a Republican, currently represents Iowa House District 2, which includes all of Clay and Palo Alto Counties as well as southern Dickinson County.

“It is a privilege to represent the great people of House District 2, and I am honored to be your voice and vote in Des Moines,” said Jones. “I have introduced several bills to address issues brought to me by people in the district and I have worked hard to turn many of those issues and ideas into law.”

A resident of Clay County, Megan graduated from Spencer High School and went on to attend Drake University. She balanced a full-time job with her studies and graduated with degrees in Law, Politics and Society and Business. She then went on to earn her J.D. from William Mitchell College of Law. She is an attorney at Hemphill Law office in Spencer.

In the House, Jones is the Chairwoman of the Environmental Protection Committee, and also serves on the Judiciary and Local Government committees. Additionally, she is a member of the Administrative Rules Review Committee and the Agriculture and Natural Resources budget subcommittee.

Jones will continue her work to spur economic growth and rein in government spending.

“We must get government out of the way so that small business owners and entrepreneurs who are already in Iowa can succeed and grow. At the same time, we must develop bold strategies to bring new businesses here,” said Jones. “I will continue my efforts to keep our state moving forward.”

Jones and her husband, Will, have one son, Anchor. The family has made their home on the Jones family farm in rural Clay County. Megan is a member of the Spencer Daybreakers Kiwanis group and also serves on the Keep Iowa Beautiful Board.

The Primary Election is scheduled to take place on June 7, with the General Election on November 8.
