MERCERSBURG, Pa. — A resident of Main Street in Mercersburg has announced his candidacy to become the town’s next mayor.

Jeremy Jones, a Republican, is the chief operating officer for Flannery’s Restaurant Group. In this capacity, he serves as general manager and executive chef for the local business.

Jones also owns Jc Jones and Company, which is a private management and culinary consultation business, according to a news release.

Jones serves as a volunteer coordinator and speaker for JIL Ministries International of Biglerville, Pa. He has been appointed by the Mercersburg Borough Council and the Tuscarora Area Chamber of Commerce’s board of directors to serve on the “police/safety committee” of the borough.

In his news release, Jones said he understands the importance of public safety and values the community-based policing model. He said he intends to represent the safety interests of community members, taxpayers and businesses.
