State issues

Don Jones, housing, homeless supporter, chief of staff for State Rep. Jose Melendez, passes away

The Quorum Report is reporting this sad news.

Don was a proud veteran who cared deeply about the plight of the homeless.

Don was a fierce advocate of affordable housing.

Don was a good guy.

Don will be missed.

I started my commitment to housing justice for people and communities with low incomes in 1975 in Austin's Clarksville community. These years of working side-by-side with dedicated community leaders to find solutions to housing and community development challenges have taught me some things and I’m learning new things every day.
