Illinois, State Representative (2011-)
Calumet City, Alderman (1997-)
Thornton Township Commissioner
After a somewhat brusk relationship with Jones' predecessor, David Miller, Thornton Township Democratic Committeeman, Frank Zuccarelli slotted Thaddeus Jones for the spot with the idea that he'd be more compliant and easier to work with. Jones hasn't been a State Rep. long enough to toss off his Committeeman's yoke yet, but he hasn't made any big moves to go up the ladder either.
