SPENCER — Alderman Kevin Jones announced his resignation at the end of the Nov. 13 Spencer town meeting.

Jones was elected Nov. 6 to represent the North Rowan area on the Rowan-Salisbury Board of Education. He will be sworn in Dec. 10.

“Last November, I ran for re-election to this board and promised once again to do all I could do to improve the quality of life for everyone who calls Spencer home,” Jones said. “I believe that this new position allows me to continue to do this; although in a different capacity.”

Jones has been an alderman since 2011.

He added he will not be leaving Spencer and will continue to work with the town through collaborations.

“I look forward to continuing to work with the board, staff, and citizens to fight to make Spencer as good of a place to live as we can,” he said. “In addition, I want to challenge the mayor and the board to continue to do everything they can do for the betterment of our town. Advocate for our residents, push for development and new opportunities, strive to make Spencer beautiful, and work to protect our resources. We have a lot at stake in Spencer. Work for me, my children, and all of the citizens of this great place.”
