Ronald Jean has announced his candidacy for re-election to the Lincoln County Commission in the Aug. 2 election.

Representing Dist. 8, Jean is a lifelong resident of the county and has resided in the Lincoln community for 41 years. During his eight-year tenure on the commission, he has served on various committees and is presently serving as chairman of the Zoning and Appeals Board and as a member of the Solid Waste, AdHOC Sewer and IDB Oversight committees.

Jean is a graduate of Flintville High School and has been self-employed for 29 years. As a former farmer and current small businessman, he said he has always taken the conservative approach, noting that is reflected by his voting record.

He said he understands the importance of new job growth for our community, which will help retain youth to live and work locally, and he added that he believes new and greater tax revenue is a must for the county’s future.

Jean is married to Debra Delap Jean, and they are the parents of one son, Ryan. They are members of the Corders Crossroads Church of Christ.

“It has been an honor and privilege to serve my community these past eight years, and I would greatly appreciate your vote in the Aug. 2 general election,” Jean said. “I would like to continue to be of service to my community for the betterment of our future for all our citizens.”
