Ronald Jerdon running for Lynn Twp supervisor
Ronald Jerdon, a longtime resident of Lynn Township has announced his candidacy to serve on the board of supervisors.
Jerdon says he has demonstrated a passion for serving others spanning decades with dedication, uncompromised integrity, competency and sound leadership for others.
He completed a 24-year career in the U.S. Army retiring as a command Sgt. Maj.
During that time, Jerdon says he instilled a level of leadership respected by many that provides the ability to make sound decisions under pressure that benefits those he serves.
Locally, he was a key partner in the planning and coordination of the Northwestern Lehigh Veterans Memorial in Ontelaunee Park.
He oversaw the construction, managed costs and ensured milestone dates were met while volunteering all his time and resources to support the community.
Jerdon serves on the Lynn Township Zoning Hearing Board.
As a successful business owner, he is respected as an example of leadership by many organizations, Jerdon says.
Jerdon was instrumental in the design and construction of the New Tripoli Fire Company’s facility.
He serves on the local board of administration of his church, as well as, Habitat For Humanity of the Lehigh Valley, The Bridges Foundation, SkillsUSA, The Leukemia Lymphoma Society and the Veterans Council of the LV Chamber of Commerce.
“The foundation of my candidacy is to provide the residents of Lynn Township with proven leadership and sound management that they deserve regarding the important issues,” Jerdon said. “Some of those issues include farmland preservation. If a landowner chooses to preserve their farm it should be their right to do so.
“Volunteer Emergency Services, our fire companies should be receiving well-thought-out support and direction to strengthen and better prepare them to perform their services for our residents. They are invaluable.
“Balanced growth, Lynn Township has more preserved farmland than any other township in Lehigh County. Future growth of any kind requires extensive research followed by sound judgment. Strong leadership and decision-making ability are paramount to safeguard the interests of our residents.”
“I would be honored for every vote of confidence I receive from the residents of Lynn Township on May 16. I am committed to provide you with the sound judgment and common-sense leadership you deserve and expect.”
