Rick Jones has been Eaton County Sheriff, a state representative and a state senator.
Now he wants to be sheriff again.
This morning Jones released a statement confirming that he was going to challenge Eaton County Sheriff Tom Reich in 2020.
Jones, 66, most recently was a two-term state senator following three terms as a state representative.
Prior to that he served one term as Eaton County Sheriff after 31 years with that department.
In today’s statement Jones said he was filing early because he has been contacted by so many people asking that the run against Reich, who Jones characterized as “a part-time sheriff”.
Reich took office in 2013.
