Wendy Stanley Jones
Wendy Stanley Jones has been a political activist on the Seacoast for over 20 years. And, she is just as proud of her role as a wife, mother, grandmother, advocate and nurse.
She has served as an Exeter Selectman – giving her the distinction of being only the fourth woman elected to this position in the town’s 350 year history.
Additionally, she has been elected and appointed to various Rockingham County Republican Committee positions and Strafford County Republican Committee positions. She was a member of President George W. Bush’s Steering Committee for New Hampshire, Co-Chair of his Strafford County Steering Committee and National Chair for “W Stands for Women”. She was hired by Gov. Huckabee for President as his Volunteer coordinator during his successful race in NH. They had zero volunteers before Mrs. Jones started and hundreds on election night.
In 2003, Mrs. Jones sensed the growing need to mentor more women in the political process. As a result, she co-founded the Vesta Roy Excellence in Public Service Series. This highly regarded, national program seeks to increase the number of Republican women elected or appointed to government positions at the local, state and national levels.
In addition to politics, she works nurse and has been involved in Special Education issues for three decades. She is a certified color consultant, a past Sustainer of Junior League, a member of the Exeter Chapter of the DAR and as a member of the New Hampshire Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution she was State Chairman for Public Relations and Media under two administrations.
