Who is Kenny Jones?
Born on February 3, 1966, Kenny became a student at Jackson State University in 1989 and studied Industrial Technology, specializing in Engineering/Industrial Management. He continued his education at the institute and graduated in 1992 with a Master’s in Industrial Technology/Technician. From 2009 to 2010, Kenny was enrolled at Millsaps College, gaining a Business Advantage Program Certificate in Business Administration and Management.
Kenny’s political career started shining after he ran unopposed to be a Mississippi State Senate for District 21 on November 6, 2007. On November 8, 2011, he ran again for the position and retained the seat while defeating Republican candidate Loren Ross. However, in 2015, Kenny was defeated in the Democratic primaries by Barbara Blackmon, who went on to run unopposed in the year’s general election. From June 2015 to January 2018, he served as the General Manager of Canton Municipal Utilities.
This was followed by Kenny joining Mississippi Quality Concepts in February 2018 as a Business Development Coordinator, a position he seemingly still holds. October 2020 saw him additionally taking up the post of County Administrator for the Hinds County Board of Supervisors. However, Kenny’s job as a Lobbyist for At Home Care made him the star of the Netflix show. As a part of his job, he works alongside critical political figures in Mississippi to help the healthcare company and ensure more help from the lawmakers.
