Veronica Jones is an Altadena native, living in the community for over 50 years. She loves her community and cares deeply about its future. Veronica ran for City Council for three reasons: to support the quality of life in Altadena, invest in the community’s future, and stand for the values of the neighborhood.

Veronica attended school in Altadena, Thomas Edison Elementary and Eliot Junior High. She is also a proud graduate of John Muir High School, Pasadena City College, and East Los Angeles Community College.

Veronica also served as Secretary and Treasurer of the City of Pasadena’s largest Employee union, and served on the Political Action Committee. During her career with the City of Pasadena, Veronica made a lasting impression on employees and community members alike, as an advocate for change, integrity and economic growth.
Veronica lives with her husband of 33 years, Douglas, Sr. They have raised 3 children in this community, Melvin, Douglas, Jr. and Desarae.
