Ron Stinson running for Falmouth City Council Print E-mail

My name is Ron Stinson and I am a candidate for the Falmouth City Council. I reside at 609 Maple Ave. with my wife and little dog Murphy. Although we are originally from Indiana, Falmouth became our home when we purchased the George and Goldie House home on Maple Ave. in 1993. We were fortunate to raise our two wonderful daughters, Ashley Stinson-Glahn and Whitney Stinson, in such a peaceful neighborhood where everyone still looks out for each other.

I earned my bachelor's of Science Degree in geology from Indiana State University in 1982;  a minor in English and my teaching certification from Sam Houston State University in 1984 and my Master of Science education from the University of Houston in 1987. I am presently in my 29th year as an educator and my 17th year with Pendleton County Schools. Prior to my current tenure at Pendleton Co., I taught for Grant Co. for six years, Clay Co., Fla. for three years and Humble I.S.D., Texas for three years. While in Florida I also taught for St. Johns River Community College as an adjunct professor. I began coaching golf for PCHS in 1999 and have four Regional Championships and have represented Pendleton Co. at the KHSAA State Tournament five times. In 2007, I was recognized as one of the top six science teachers in the tri-state area by a consortium of educators from Xavier University, Northern Kentucky University, and the University of Cincinnati. Most recently I was awarded a Kentucky Colonelship by the governor on the recommendation of State Representative Tom McKee.

I have served the citizens of Falmouth as a member and currently the chairman of the Ethics Board since 2006. I have also served as chairman of the Board of Adjustments for Planning and Zoning since 2012.

It is in my nature to listen first, be analytical and a problem solver second and to act third. I believe that these qualities are what one should look for in any elected official. Please find it in your heart and minds to vote for me, Ron Stinson, this Election Day.
