Macon Chiropractor To Run For Macon City Council Seat In Upcoming Primary
by Amanda Smith
Macon chiropractor Ron Lemon has announced that he will run for a seat on Macon City Council in the upcoming primary election on July 19, 2001. The last day to qualify for the election was June 10, 2011.
Lemon attended the University of Missouri for his pre-chiropractic studies and graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic with a Doctorate in Chiropractic in 1986. He has practiced in Macon since 1988 and is now located at Middle Georgia Chiropractic on Vineville Avenue in Macon.
Serving on the boards of Family Advancement Ministries (whose mission is to support women with children); Historic Macon Foundation (revitalizing Macon’s historic neighborhoods and saving historic structures) and the Alexander II PTA, Lemon also works with the St Vincent DePaul Society in their work with the poor in the community.
Lemon has been very involved with the 3rd Precinct and has worked with the Macon Police Department to help solve crime issues. "I am very passionate about the problems in Macon," said Lemon. "I am saddened by the condition of our recreation facilities in this town and I will work tirelessly on the problem of blighted and substandard housing." Lemon would like to help the residents of Pleasant Hill create a vision of a "Pleasant Hill Corridor" that could be a springboard of new development and revitalization of that area.
"We have let the problems of Macon go on for far too many years and it's time to change the direction of our city," Lemon said. "We do that by electing new leaders with fresh ideas and problem-solving solutions. Constant bickering at City Council meetings solves nothing," he continued. "We won't bring jobs to this city until we change our attitude and the way we do business. I would ask voters to consider a change on July 19th."
Lemon is running against Henry Ficklin for the Ward III Post 2 seat in the primary.
