Former Speaker Tim Jones served in the Missouri House from 2007 to 2015. Tim then entered the private sector where he helped lead St. Louis based public policy media company, First Rule, as their Chief Communications Officer from 2015 to 2020. The fiscally minded Missouri Club for Growth chose Tim to be Chairman of their Board of Directors in 2015 and The Hammond Institute at Lindenwood University, a free-market think tank, made Tim a Senior Policy Fellow that same year. The Grover Norquist lead Americans for Tax Reform designated Tim as their Senior Fellow for External Affairs in October of 2020. During that same month, Tim founded Elevation Strategies, LLC, a strategic consulting and communications company dedicated to helping movement conservatives take their missions in public policy, coalition building, and institutional advancement to the next level.
He has become a significant media presence as a host, political analyst, and commentator in the television, radio, and digital online media worlds. Tim began his career as a prosecuting attorney before transitioning to private practice, simultaneously serving as President of the Board of Aldermen for the City of Eureka and then in the Missouri General Assembly, before launching his current career in communications, media, and issue advocacy.
Tim is married to the accomplished (and ever-patient!), Suzanne, and they have been blessed with two brilliant and energetic daughters, Katie and Abby.
