Ron Coleman was the first black person elected to office in Harriman, TN. That was just in 1987. I consider it a moment of personal joy that I was able to have an adult beverage with him at a Chamber event a couple of years later. Ron was the top vote getter and served as Vice Mayor of Harriman. I remember a number of things about him but his personal style and ever present smile stand out.

I had not heard that sad news...

Ron was a friend and a great guy. He was a very positive person, and a positive influence on Harriman and our whole community. We are better for Ron having been here with us, and we are diminished by his absence.
