Governor to Appoint ASA Member Perrin Jones, M.D. to North Carolina House of Representatives
On September 23, the North Carolina Pitt County Republican Party Executive Committee elected ASA member Perrin Jones, M.D. to a vacancy in the North Carolina House of Representatives. The position was vacated by U.S. Representative Greg Murphy, a urologist, when he was elected to the 3rd Congressional District in a recent special election. Under North Carolina law, the Governor is required now to appoint Dr. Jones to Rep. Murphy’s former 9th North Carolina House District seat.
Dr. Jones is a past president of the North Carolina Society of Anesthesiologists. A longtime member of ASA, he presently serves as an Alternate Delegate to the House of Delegates. Dr. Jones is a graduate of the Bowman Gray School of Medicine at Wake Forest University. Dr. Jones completed his anesthesiology residency at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center.
Congratulations to Dr. Jones!
