Tabbotha Adams Jones runs for city council, Ward 2


Meridian native Tabbotha Adams Jones has joined the list of candidates running for the Ward 2 city council seat.

“I want to take my city back. I want to take the young people back to the community I knew growing up,” said Adams Jones.

If elected to city council, one of her plans is to turn the former Witherspoon Elementary School into a trade school.

“Everybody is not born for college. We have students that’s riding around the neighborhoods that are good artists. Let’s give them a way with their art. They may be good singers or drama students, or they may be awesome with their hands like me. I started off at Jackson State, but when I got there, I realized I was great at being a stylist. My father gave me $1,500 to start my own business. I haven’t looked back,” said Adams Jones.

She also plans to create a safe-haven for children.

“I want our community to be more neighborly. I want us to be a more communicative service neighborhood. I want to see community gardens,” said Adams Jones

She explained why residents should vote for her.

“All this started my life right here in Ward 2. I am a product of this community wholeheartedly. I went to school here. I raised my children here. I’m going to put the love back in my community that my community has put in me.”
