Georgia State Representative
Todd Jones is an American businessman, tech entrepreneur, and politician from Georgia. He is a Republican member of the Georgia House of Representatives for District 25.
Jones was born in South Florida to Walter and Gail Jones and grew up in a Jewish and Presbyterian household. He met Tracey Neubert in grade school, and instantly began annoying her. They were married in 1992 and have four children.
He received a bachelor's degree in finance in 1989 and a J.D. in 1994 from the University of Florida. Jones began his career as a senior consultant at Accenture in 1990, moving from there to Cambridge Technology Partners and becoming the executive vice president of AgCert in 2007. After AgCert, he turned his attention to launching business initiatives that leveraged the power of capitalism to make a demonstrable difference in his community, and ultimately, the country. His focus, since 2007, has been a continued focus on renewable energy, carbon management, secondary education, worker safety, and criminal justice reform.
In February 2016, Jones announced his intention to run for Georgia State House District 25 with the endorsement of outgoing Rep. Michael Dudgeon. He received 79% of the vote in the primary and was unopposed in the general election. He was sworn into office on January 9, 2017.
In 2022, he became one of the chief supporters of House Bill 1013, which radically overhauled Georgia's mental health care system. He did a media blitz in support of the bill, arguing that mental healthcare needed to be more readily available for those like his eldest son, who was diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder. The bill unanimously passed both the Georgia House and Senate and was signed into law by Gov. Brian Kemp.
