Letter To Editor:: A Personal Message from Evansville City Councilman Ron Beane


A Personal Message from Evansville At-Large City Councilman Ron Beane

September 13, 2023

As you may know, I am running for reelection as an At-Large member of the Evansville City Council. I have been honored to serve you as a member of the City Council for the past four years and hope to have the opportunity to be your representative for another term.

I am writing to share the news I was recently diagnosed with cancer and will be undergoing treatment in the coming weeks. Thankfully, the form of cancer I have is quite treatable, and I am under the care of highly qualified health professionals. I am very optimistic I will achieve a full recovery and am determined to continue my career of service to the citizens of Evansville.

I know many of my fellow Evansville residents have faced similar circumstances, either personally or through the experience of family, friends, or neighbors. I expect there will be times in the days ahead when I will need to focus on my health and well-being.

Having attended every one of the 88 regularly scheduled meetings during my term thus far, my goal is to finish this next four months and serve you for another 4-years.

It is so gratifying to have a strong support system, including my wife and family, personal friends, colleagues, and citizens throughout the city of Evansville, and beyond. I ask for your prayers and support during this time.

With sincere appreciation,

Ron Beane

FOOTNOTE: We ask you to join us in praying for Ron’s quick recovery.  We consider Ron to be an open. honest, friendly, and effective public servant.
