Eddie Jones for Paducah City Commissioner nikkidale
Eddie Jones is a local attorney, military veteran, small business owner, proud father, and intent on providing real solutions for Paducah.
Family & Education
My daughter and other young people are the main reason I’m running for city commission. It’s imperative that we continue to build a strong and supportive community in which our children can grow, prosper, and raise families of their own.
My career as a lawyer, both in private practice and in the military, has provided me with the knowledge and skills to ask the tough questions and then develop real solutions for the real problems people face.
A significant part of my job at our law firm includes being a part of an employment team that is sensitive, fair, and responsible. Boehl Stopher & Graves is one of Paducah’s oldest law firms in Paducah and employs fifteen people.
Paducah has a lot to offer and is poised to be one of the greatest cities around. Our unique historic character is a defining asset that we should protect. With partners, I have helped restore 6 historic structures, one of which is in downtown Paducah.
Eddie Jones is focused on Paducah becoming a vibrant community that our children will call home in years to come.
Create a more accountable organization structure
I believe that to keep growing this community we must attend to the basics, affordability. We need to rethink the relationship between the city commission and Paducah Power and create a more accountable organization structure to Paducah Power Systems.
Safer roads can create healthier residents and a more connected city
Our parks are not just places to play, but rather they are living monuments to our democracy. Through our parks, all people enjoy ownership in the beauty of our country, state and city. Past Paducah leaders have wisely made investments in Paducah’s parks.
Support the growth of schools, businesses and non-profits
Because it is our local workforce that pays for services, debt, and infrastructure, I believe we need to use local resources to solve local problems. Co-creation and co-design of solutions allows citizen engagement and a deeper affection for our town.
Building on what makes us unique and preserving our distinct culture
I believe that Paducah is truly the chief among other western Kentucky towns. I will work to preserve the historical charm and continue to improve the quality of life for both ourselves and our children so that we can be as proud of our future as we are of our past.
