About the Candidate: 

Mark writes, “My name is Mark Alan Jones, I'll be on the ballot as Mark “MAJIC” Jones. You may have seen my company trucks running around town: MAJIC Painting & Wallcovering. Those driving billboards have been touring the Midwest since 1993. The goofy spelling is an acronym of my initials M.A.J. incorporated. I was born and raised in Springfield, and have experienced many aspects of Greene County life. I've alternated from training myself to eat on five dollars a week, to making six digits a year. I've sent clients on weekend getaways at the finest Bed & Breakfasts, I've rolled loose change from my coin jars on Thursday night to make payroll Friday. My philosophy is, “Hope for the best, but prepare for the worst.” My integrity is unsurpassed: If I say it, it's real. I actually entertained the idea of getting an, if you will, “responsible productive member of society haircut,” after a VERY short deliberation, I concluded those responsible productive haircuts have gotten us so far in debt, it'll take an individual who's not afraid to look outside the box, or as I prefer “CAGE” to make things right! Stop the apathy, vote according to what you want, not what they say you can have. In my church bulletin recently, was a quote by Thomas Paine, “Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom must undergo the fatigue of supporting it."
