Tilley: Tim Jones will do just as good a job as I did

Usually, when you pass the baton from one speaker of the house to another from the same party, everyone passes compliments all around, but former Speaker Steve Tilley hit his successor, Rep. Tim Jones, R-Eureka, right between the eyes today.

“I’m blessed to be able to turn the gavel over to (him),” Tilley said. “There is nobody better in Jefferson City. He’s smart, conservative, will work hard and is a man of integrity and honesty. I feel he will build upon what I left, and do just as good a job if not better than I did.”
Reportedly, Jones was not expecting such a low blow.
