I am honored to have the endorsement of Kelly White Gibson. Kelly is our town’s Clerk-Treasurer nominee in the November 5, 2019 General Election. She is also a business owner and attorney here in Merrillville. She is unopposed in the fall elecction and has a great background to serve us all as our town’s Clerk-Treasurer.
It is important that all town elected leaders work together as a team to tackle the issues in our town. That is how things get done! And after all, when leaders are “hired” by the voters, they are expecting all positions to work together to get the job done.
Our country’s current state of political affairs do not seem to show that kind of teamwork or collaboration in our politics. I look forward to that not being the case in Merrillville. Our elected leaders as well as all department heads, employees, as well as our appointed Boards and Commissions will need to work together for the common good of our town. I look forward to working with Kelly, just like you, the voters, intend for us to do! Thank you Kelly for your open endorsement. I am looking forward to taking the oath of office with you in 2020! -Rick Bella
