Rep. Brian Jones, D-Freedom, was present for 98.2 percent of roll call votes for the legislative session that wrapped up in May, finishing his first two-year term with near-perfect attendance.

“As a legislator, my job is to represent the people of my district,” said Rep. Jones. “Being the voice of my constituents in Augusta means making sure they have a say when important issues come before the House for a vote.”

The 126th Legislature took a total of 793 roll call votes during its two regular sessions and one special session. Roll call attendance percentages are compiled each session by the Clerk of the House.

Rep. Jones represents Burnham, Freedom, Knox, Montville, Palermo, Thorndike, Troy and Unity in the Maine House of Representatives. He serves on the Joint Standing Committee for Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry. A former high school teacher, Rep. Jones is currently an adjunct professor at both Unity College and the New England School of Communications. He also serves as a selectman and volunteer firefighter in Freedom.
