State Representative Don Jones (R-Freeport) issued the following statement on the passing for former State Representative Andy Thompson.
“I am terribly saddened to hear of the passing of my good friend and predecessor, Andy Thompson. He made my decision to run for office a lot easier and I can sincerely say that if it weren’t for him, I would not be where I am, serving the people in the 95th House District, like I am now. Andy had a passion for the truth and for liberty and was a fighter for every student. He hired my legislative aide, A.J. Thomas, and helped him grow into the professional he is today. Andy was a man who loved his family, his community and his country. He was known by many and loved by many. I encourage everyone to join me in keeping his family and friends in your prayers during this difficult time.”
State Representative Don Jones is serving his first term in the Ohio House of Representatives. He represents the 95th District, which includes Carroll, Harrison and Noble counties, as well as portions of Washington and Belmont counties.
