Fox Announces Candidacy For City Council Seat Four

Submitted by the candidate

Ronald Fox today officially announces that he is a candidate for council seat four in the upcoming city election and sincerely asks for your support.

Fox says, “I have had the privilege to serve the citizens of Lawrenceburg for the past year while serving the remaining year of our friend Buford Goolsby’s term.”

Fox is a graduate of Lawrence County High School and Martin Methodist College. He is the owner and operator of Fox Sporting Goods. He served as principal and teacher at Piney Elementary school from 1967-1970 and worked for the Tennessee Department of Transportation from 1970-1980. He has been in the sporting goods business since leaving the D.O.T. Engineering Department.

Fox is a lifelong resident of Lawrenceburg and has been married to Dean Morrison Fox for 40 years. They have four sons and six grandchildren. Fox has spent much time as a volunteer in the city’s sports programs. “My life has crossed the path of many of our citizens through sports,” said Fox.

Fox began his volunteer work with the late Bud Webb and the late George Lopp at the Youth Center in 1963. “After Mr. Webb passed, George and I did our best to keep the program moving in a forward manner. We were able to help expand the number of basketball teams to 43 and increase the number of girls softball teams from three to 34,” he said.

Fox coached Babe Ruth and Little League baseball teams for 19 years and served as President of Lawrenceburg Little League from 1999-2004.

“My vision and hope for the city of Lawrenceburg is to create a better place to live, work and play; to bring not just jobs but careers to Lawrenceburg.”

 Fox pledges to work for the citizens and city employees and to work together with city and county leaders and the Chamber of Commerce to make Lawrenceburg better in every aspect. Fox said he would continue to work on projects, along with other city leaders, to benefit ALL the citizens of Lawrenceburg.

 Election Day is May 5, 2008. The early voting period will run from April 15 through April 30.
