Former city councilman E.C. Jones, immediately after hearing his son Chris Jones sentenced to 23 years for second-degree murder for a night-club shooting death last year, emerged from the Criminal Court courtroom, faced TV cameras and declared, “I am going to the election commission to pull a petition to run for City Mayor.”


Reportedly, Jones did indeed secure the petition. More news as it develops.
