My name is Mark Alan Jones, I'll be on the ballot as Mark "MAJIC" Jones.
You may have seen my Company trucks running around town: MAJIC Painting & Wallcovering. Those driving billboards have been touring the Midwest since 1993. The goofy spelling is an acronym of my initials M.A.J. incorporated. I was born and raised in Springfield, and have experienced many aspects of Greene County life. I've alternated from training myself to eat on five dollars a week, to making six digits a year. I've sent clients on weekend getaways at the finest Bed & Breakfasts, I've rolled loose change from my coin jars on Thursday night to make payroll Friday. My philosophy is "Hope for the best, but prepare for the worst." My integrity is unsurpassed: If I say it, it's real. I actually entertained the idea of getting an, if you will, "responsible productive member of society haircut," after a VERY short deliberation, I concluded those responsible productive haircuts have gotten us so far in debt, it'll take an individual who's not afraid to look outside the box, or as I prefer "CAGE" to make things right! Stop the apathy, vote according to what you want, not what they say you can have. In my church bulletin recently, was a quote by Thomas Paine, "Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom must undergo the fatigue of supporting it." Greene County is in serious financial trouble. It's time to roll up our sleeves and do the best we can with what we have. WE PAY ENOUGH IN TAXES; we need to get real people in here with fresh ideas. In my opinion, the failing public school system is the beginning to the end. I believe, as many others do, that the bureaucracy has taken over, and hopefully an open mind able to think outside the "cage" can correct the damage that's been imposed. I have a pragmatic optimism that the people of Greene County would prefer to roll up their sleeves and get busy, than roll over and accept the consequences of apathy. If elected and awarded this position, I'll conclude the people of Greene County are willing to accept this responsibility and slowly work to take our local government back. Complacency at this point is not an option...This is for our kids... What are you willing to do?
