According to a tweet this afternoon, Christine Jones, the former Executive Vice President, General Counsel and Corporate Secretary for Go Daddy, filed paperwork to run for the office of Governor in the state of Arizona. Ms. Jones will be running on the Republican party ticket, and the election will be held on November 4, 2014.
Wisely, Ms. Jones owns the exact match domain name, ChristineJones.com, and it appears that she will use the domain name for her campaign website.
For many years, Ms. Jones was the second most public face of Go Daddy behind its founder, Bob Parsons. When there were policy or legal issues regarding Go Daddy or domain names, Ms. Jones was often cited in mainstream news reports.
Here’s wishing Ms. Jones all the best in her run for Governor!
