MAYOR RON MORRISON
Ron is a lifelong resident of National City and its immediate vicinity. Growing up in National City, San Diego County’s second oldest city, gave Ron a sense of a close knit community, rich with history and diverse culture. Ron has always cared deeply about National City and has been actively involved in community service and political action. Before being elected to the City Council, he fought for residential property rights, led political campaigns against outside interests, and battled City Hall regularly. In the late 1980’s and early 1990’s, Ron was referred to by the Los Angeles Times as ‘National City’s community activist’, and by the San Diego Union as ‘National City’s Sixth Councilman’. Rolling up his sleeves, pitching in, and leading by example has always been a part of Ron’s character, whether it is working on complex governmental issues, organizing a neighborhood, cleaning up an alley or hauling trash for seniors. Ron decided to not just throw stones at City Hall, but to work from the inside to give citizens a voice and an opportunity for positive change from within city government. Ron was elected to the City Council in 1992 and was re-elected three times before being elected Mayor in 2006 and re-elected in 2010. Serving in his eighteenth year as an elected National City official Ron has provided leadership in key position at not only the local level, but also regionally, state, and nationally.
Some of the positions that Ron currently serves on are:
Ron has been the recipient of numerous civic and humanitarian awards. The award he is most proud of is seeing the positive changes in National City and the quality of life for its residents. The citizen turned Councilman turned Mayor is driven to make National City a better place because of his strong roots, dedication and commitment to the people of National City.
Ron’s favorite quote is, “Proud to be Mayor of National City.”
