Benton lawyer Parker Jones has announced his candidacy for Saline County prosecuting attorney. Current prosecutor Ken Casady is running for circuit judge. Jones issued a statement:

“I’m running because I believe it’s time for change and a new direction in the Prosecuting Attorney’s office so that we can lower the growing crime rate in Saline County,” said Jones. “Anyone can promise to crack down on violent crime, but I plan to be a better partner with law enforcement and the schools in Saline County to help counter the prevailing trends that create crime. I plan to punish those responsible for committing crimes, and seek justice for victims, but I also want to prevent crime before we need to punish. Finally, we must work together to fight the growing opioid crisis that has harmed too many people and destroyed too many families in our county”
Prosecutors run as non-partisan candidates. Jones' political consultant, Michael Cook, said Jones typically votes in Republican primary elections.
