Congressional candidate to address local Democratic Club
Dr. Kermit Jones is coming to Mariposa, via Zoom, and plans to address the local Mariposa Democratic Club on Saturday, October 9 at 10am.
After growing up on a farm, Jones attended medical school (as well as law school) and was inspired to serve in the US Navy after 9/11. He served as a flight surgeon in Iraq. Upon returning to the US he was assigned to Washington, DC and worked in the Obama administration as a White House Fellow assigned to the Dept of Health and Human Services to work on improving healthcare for veterans.
Dr. Jones says, “I’m running for Congress because too many people are struggling with the skyrocketing cost of care and prescription drugs. Meanwhile, career politicians like my opponent put partisan politics ahead of the health of our families by ignoring experts and opposing policies to encourage masks and the vaccine.”
Currently Dr. Jones is a physician for Kaiser Medical Center in Roseville. His website, www.kermitjonesforcongress.com, lists his positions on a variety of issues. He is married with children and adds, “After 13 years of a career politician who cares more about politics than people, I think our families deserve a representative who puts us first.”
Dr. Jones will be on the June 2022 primary ballot running against Congressman Tom McClintock.
This meeting is open to the public and is sponsored by the local Mariposa Democratic Club. The public is invited to listen and ask questions. For a link to the Zoom meeting, email Maripsoademclub@gmail.com. Members of the club will receive an email with an invitation to the meeting.
