Lin­coln Of­fi­cer Run­ning For Goshen Mayor

Washington County Enterprise-Leader - - NEWS - By Lynn Kut­ter

LIN­COLN — One of Lin­coln’s new po­lice of­fi­cers is the for­mer po­lice chief for the city of Goshen.

Zeb Rone is a cer­ti­fied of­fi­cer with 18 years of ex­pe­ri­ence. He started the Goshen Po­lice Depart­ment in 2016 but re­signed as chief of po­lice to run for mayor of Goshen in the Novem­ber gen­eral elec­tion.

He also has worked for Madi­son County Sher­iff’s Of­fice and Fayet­teville and Siloam Springs po­lice de­part­ments.

Rone, 38, said he stepped down as Goshen po­lice chief and then heard the city of Lin­coln was ac­cept­ing ap­pli­ca­tions for an of­fi­cer’s po­si­tion and de­cided to ap­ply for the job.

Law en­force­ment fits him, Rone said.

“It’s some­thing I’ve al­ways wanted to do,” Rone said. “I love help­ing peo­ple and I like be­ing a prob­lem-solver and I like lead­ing. I re­mem­ber where I came from and have em­pa­thy for peo­ple.”

Rone has three chil­dren who at­tend school in Siloam Springs. His hob­bies in­clude wood­work­ing, kayak­ing and fishing.
