Councillor Ron Brown

I was born in Brandon on January 5, 1950 to James and Audrey Brown. I am from a large family of 9 kids. I have grown up in the South End area and attended George Fitton, McLaren and Harrison High School.

I have worked since the age of 8 years such as delivering Star weekly, Brandon Sun, dug gardens, shoveled snow, shoveled coal and several years at Green Acres Drive Inn Theatre. I have been with Behlen 43 years. I did leave Behlen for 1 year and opened Papa Ron’s New & Used Furniture in the downtown area. I also left Behlen for 1 year to work for Safeway and Cross Country Publications. Both times I was asked to return to Behlen.

I am now honored to be a city councillor and look forward to representing our City and Richmond Ward 8.

I am presently married to my wife of 40 plus years. Together we have 3 grown children. These three kids have given us 10 grandchildren.

I have been involved in:

  • Big Brothers in early 1970
