Local resident and former Missouri State Representative Kenny Jones is one of 26 people nominated to 18 boards and commissions by Gov. Jay Nixon.
The Missouri Senate must now confirm all but one of these nominees, Jones included.
Jones' nomination is to the Missouri Board of Probation and Parole where, if confirmed, he will be one of seven members responsible for determining whether an inmate should be paroled or conditionally released and for supervising all persons on probation and parole. The term ends Dec. 10, 2017.
