Herb Jones

Current Position: CEO, Pyramid Technologies, LLC, since 2014
Affiliation: Democrat
Candidate: 2022 US Representative for US House District 1
Former Position(s): New Kent County Treasur from 1999 – 2010

Herb retired after 30 years in the U.S. Army and served as the New Kent County Treasurer for 12 years. Now Herb’s community is asking him to serve again, this time in the halls of Congress. On January 6, 2020 the Republican incumbent voted against certifying the election. That vote tried to overthrow the will of 2.4 million Virginia voters. The founding principles of our Nation are under attack and now, more than ever, we need courageous leaders to fight back.
