Re-Election Time

It is hard to believe that it is time for re-election in the upcoming November 7, 2023, Municipal General Election. I have been honored to serve you and ask for your support so I may remain your representative on the Merrillville Town Council. I have two challengers who signed up to run against me as Independents claiming no political party. To run as an independent candidate you only need to gather signatures from registered voters to get your name on the ballot.

Merrillville is BOOMING!

To say that Merrillville is booming is an understatement. We have exploded! Many great companies have been built in our town bringing a tax base and new high-paying jobs to our area. Our home values are up and we have worked hard on new roads, repairs, and traffic management throughout town. We need to continue to manage and keep our momentum going in town. Now is not the time to stagnate our progress or worse yet, to go backwards.

Serving is Serious Business

Merrillville is no longer a small town. Our population has doubled since our town began 50 years ago. We need serious, experienced, committed, and proven leadership to keep our town safe and moving in the right direction and also to maintain our property values and increase our quality of life here. I am extremely responsive to your needs. A true representative without a personal agenda other than working for YOU! Our neighborhoods are prospering in Ward 5 and the entire town.

Let's Keep Working Together

I would like to ask for your support. The election season won’t be too exciting as the only office to vote for will be the Town Council position. The town Clerk-Treasurer and Town Judge are running unopposed. Please let me know if you would like an absentee ballot. You may also vote early once that is available from the County, or simply stop by on November 7th to cast your vote. I look forward to continue serving you. Please reach out to me at any time.

Do you need an absentee ballot? Use the link below to download the form to mail back to the county. They will send you the ballot once available.

Click on the link button below. Once the file opens, you may click on File, Save As, to save it to your computer. Fill out the form and mail it back to the county using the address highlighted on the 2nd page. The county election board will then mail you the paper ballot for the fall election. 

Please review my various mailers that will be arriving at your homes via US Mail.
