Elect Chas Jones for City Council


Benton County Historical Society and Museum, Philomath, Oregon

Thank you for supporting my 2018 campaign to run for Philomath City Council. I hope that you will vote to elect Chas Jones in November. There are many reasons that I am running for the position, but my ultimate goal is to continue to make Philomath a community that we are proud to be a part of.  I see a lot of hope and future opportunities for the city, especially with many recent business investments. These new businesses add to the city’s thriving enterprises that are well established and revered across the region.

As a City Councilor, I will work to maintain Philomath’s appeal as a small rural community. Recently, there has been a push for rapid economic and residential growth. I am supportive of developing the city’s tax base and business opportunities, but additional development should be intentional. I will work to ensure that our economic and community development efforts are good for our community and economy, while adding to Philomath’s cultural vibrancy and not being detrimental to our resources. This will continue to improve the high quality of life we enjoy in Philomath.

I will support our economy by backing well-planned residential development that is in the long-term interest of the city. I will promote our community as the smart choice for expanding businesses and entrepreneurs to increase our tax base. Hopefully these efforts will allow the city to reduce or eliminate the special utility fees being charged to our residents. Finally, I will be a champion for our teachers, police, and fire fighters and will be a strong advocate for education and public safety. In short, I will stand with our residents to foster the best opportunities for growing a Smart Philomath.

I ask for your support in the November 2018 election. So please vote to Elect Chas Jones to the Philomath City Council.  I promise to support city initiatives that are in the best interest of the city and its residents.
