apprenticeship of Robert Davis construction.
After being with Robert Davis construction for 10 years he founded David F. Jones and
Son Construction LLC in 2001. In addition to having his own company he started
coaching with Richmond Parks and Recreation, moving on to start the first 9th grade
football team at Thomas Jefferson High School. David's experiences with rps desire to
stay involved with the youth led him to create TH-JAW foundation.
David will be running for 5th district school board because he wants to fight for equality
for all rps kids, higher pay for teachers, and better facilities for our kids. He would like to
see rps students get the opportunity to have the same advantages that students in our
surrounding counties have. David would like to see all our rps teachers get higher
salaries, and by giving the teacher greater pay we could keep the outstanding teachers
of rps. David wants to continue to see rps upgrade their facilities. He also is looking
forward to working with the superintendent and school board to bring change to rps.
