RIDGEFIELD — Brett Jones, a Ridgefield community member, business owner and Ridgefield school parent, was appointed Ridgefield School District’s newest school board member by unanimous vote at the board’s April 2 meeting.
Jones is a lifelong Ridgefield resident, and he and his wife, Georgianna, have four daughters attending Ridgefield schools. His business, Jones Landscape, Inc., has donated time and resources in assisting the Superintendent’s Student Advisory Council student members in successfully implementing the landscaping project now in progress at the Ridgefield Administrative & Civic Center. Jones is a third-generation Ridgefield High School graduate, and his great-grandfather, Walter A. Jones, was a member of the school board when Union Ridge Elementary School was built in 1952.
“It is an honor to participate in the growth of Ridgefield schools, just like him,” Jones said in a news release from the district. “I believe the schools in Ridgefield are the heartbeat of the community. Having lived in Ridgefield my entire life, I am excited to be involved with the school district during this time of growth in our town.”
Jones will represent District 3, a seat formerly held by Steve Radosevich, who resigned in March after nearly 10 years on the board.
