Deputy Coroner Seeks Election To Macon City Council



By Amanda Smith



Bibb County Deputy Coroner Lonnie Miley recently announced that he is seeking election to the Macon City Council seat at Ward 1, Post 2 in the upcoming elections. 


Miley is a Deputy Coroner/Investigator for Bibb County and a licensed Funeral Director and Embalmer.  He attended Miami Dade and Fort Valley State Colleges, where he received his Associates and Bachelors Degrees.  He also attended Emanuel Bible College.  Afterwards, he served in the U.S. Coast Guard and the U.S. Army Reserve.  Miley is a Gulf War Veteran and received the Southwest Asia Service Medal with three Bronze Stars.


Member of the National Disaster Medical System DMORT Team and was deployed to New York City during 911 and to New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina.


Miley has a positive vision for East Macon if elected.  "I grew up in East Macon and went to school here," he said.  "I want to make sure that this area is served to its fullest through economic growth.  Though there are homes and businesses that have been here for many years, there is still a negative stigma attached to East Macon.  We need to provide a movie theater, upscale restaurants, and other services so that residents won't have to travel across town for these things.  I believe that I can serve East Macon to its fullest in this respect."


Married to Deborah Shellman Miley, Lonnie is a father and grandfather and is a member of several affiliations, including:


  • Member of St. Peter Claver Catholic Church
  • Fort Valley Alumni Association
  • President of the Macon/Bibb County EOC Board
  • Commander of Post 9709/Veteran of Foreign Wars
  • Macon/Bibb Planning and Zoning Commission
