INSIDE THE PINK CITY COUNCIL OFFICE OF JOLANDA JONES!

STAFFERS: THIS IS THE FUN OFFICE AT CITY HALL!



The Insite made a stop by the ‘pink office’ of newly elected City Council Member Jolanda Jones. She takes the at-large post once held by Michael Berry. The buzz around city hall was that Jones had painted her office pink. So what better way to find out than to just go there. To my surprise the office was actually pink when I arrived. Jones also repositioned her space to ensure her chief of staff had a window view of Bagby just like her. When you walk into the office you get a sense that those who work there enjoy their jobs. Jones describes what used to be several cubicles and beige walls as the fun office. But don’t get it twisted, there’s still a lot of work going on there according to staffers. Jones says helping constituents in the community is also a lot of fun. Her staffers also chime in saying, “this is the fun office.” I asked Jones, who’s an attorney by trade and ham by nature, to take some photos. She didn’t hesitate. I also invited her staffers to get into the photos. Pictured from Jones’ staff: Linda Layton (Agenda Director), Guillermo Trevino (Constituent Director), Mechelle Phillips, and Patricia McFarland (Chief of Staff). Hey guys, thanks for dropping by the Insite!
