Ross Runs For Re-election To Macon City Council Seat




By Amanda Smith



Macon City Councilman Alveno Ross announced recently that he will seek re-election to his council seat, Ward 3, Post 2.  Should he succeed in his bid, this will be Ross’ third consecutive term on the Macon City Council.

A graduate of Morehouse College in Atlanta, Ross received his B.A. in Political Science in 1975 and continued his education at the University of Georgia in “Assessment Administration” for the Department of Revenue.


Ross serves as a Real Property Assessment Administrator for the Macon/Bibb County Board of Tax Assessors with over 25 years of service.  In his elected position, Ross has served on several committees and authorities including Appropriations (Vice Chairman), Community and Economic Development, Employee and Compensation Development, Rules Committee (Vice Chairman), as Chairman of the Sub-Committee on Procurement Regulations (Ad Hoc committee), and as Vice Chair of the Land Bank Committee, all for the city of Macon.

For the state of Georgia, he has served on the Joint Committee on Economic Development, representing the Georgia Municipal Association, and the Association of County Commissioners and the Economic Development Association of Georgia, as a past Co-Chairman.

Ross believes the key to success lies in challenging Macon.  “Challenges are continuous; the core downtown Macon area and neighborhood revitalization continue to be top issues,” he said in a recent interview.  We need to move forward with the rapid rail issues (toward ATL), and develop the airport, so that we can take advantage of the airport for air freight delivery.”
