Jones talks about his selection as deputy mayor on Action Line

    Juenau Deputy Mayor Loren Jones

    Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - Loren Jones will serve his last year on the Juneau Assembly as the town's deputy mayor.

    He'll be term-limited after serving three terms and thus barred from seeking re-election next year.

    Jones was asked on Action Line about becoming deputy mayor.  "I was asked if I was interested being my last year and I said 'yes.'  And so I was nominated and voted in by my peers which I'm very grateful to.  I take it as a real honor."

    The deputy mayor chairs the Committee of the Whole.  He talked about the importance of that panel's work.  "It is the one time we can work as a group.  Not take public testimony,  Have conversations between us and staff to work through lots of issues."
