Ron is clear about his feelings towards Parker. “I’m on the road a lot because of work. The more I travel the more thankful I am to call Parker home. I cannot imagine raising my family anywhere else. Parker has grown a lot since I moved here and the town is doingvery well. If I am fortunate enough to get elected, I will help this community continue grow and to move forward,” Ron says. “We need to get the word out to more homeowners and small businesses why Parker would be a great place for them to call home, as well. With my business and financial experience, I know that I can help this town grow in a strong, fiscally responsible way.”
This is the first time Ron has run for public office. For more information please visit ronfrakerjr.com.
