Jones Steps Down From Environmental Advisory Commission

New District 3 City Councilmember Justin Jones will resign from the Environmental Advisory Commission on Monday, according to the City Council agenda. 

“Now that I have been appointed Councilmember for District 3, I resign from the EAC effective immediately,” Jones wrote in his resignation letter.

The move is not expected.

In most cases, citizens sit on commissions, while council members sit on the City Council committee. 

Jones’ resignation will allow Tyron Hampton to choose another replacement on the commission. 

Commissioners can reside in any district. The only requirement is they reside in the city. 

It is not known who will replace Jones. Currently David Cutter of District 3 serves as the vice chair of the commission.

The City Council voted 5-2 to appoint Justin Jones to represent District 3 in September.

Jones was selected over Brandon Lamar and Pastor Lucious Smith for the vacancy created by the death of John J. Kennedy.

Jones, an engineer, works for LA County. 

Kennedy died on July 21. Jones will sit in the seat until December when the City Council once again takes upon the appointment process.

The City Council can appoint Jones again or a new applicant who qualifies via the City’s process. 

Residents living in District 3 will have their say in 2024 at the General Municipal Election.
