Pontiac, MI – Kiesha Jones is one of ten people running for six seats on the Pontiac Library Board on Nov. 7. Also on the ballot are Aleda J. Brisbon, Vernita L. Duvall, Perry Earl, Jr., Janiece Gage, Mattie McKinney Hatchett, Rosie Lance-Richardson, Holbert Maxey, Malkia M. Newman and Malanie Sharee Rutherford.
Jones works as an employment specialist with Community Network Services and sits on the board of Community Housing Network. She also has been a track coach and served on the Oakland Schools Advisory Committee.
“I am running for the Pontiac Library Board because I felt like it was an opportunity for me to give back to Pontiac. I was born and raised in Pontiac, and I have two children who are a product of the Pontiac School District, and so I felt like this was a way for me to give back,” she said. “As a single mom I didn’t have time when they were younger, but I have that now and so I think that’s what I want to do.”
