Vigo County Councilman Brendan Kearns announces he will run for County Commissioner.
He announced his candidacy for Vigo County Commissioner in the 2018 election on Wednesday.
In a news release, Kearns says “We need to enhance our quality of place. The Commissioners are in an excellent position to invest our hard earned tax dollars to benefit our community. Economic Development funds should fund unique and innovative projects that make our county more attractive.”
Kearns says he believes Vigo County needs a strategic vision plan. He says more support is needed for quality of place initiatives, citing Riverfront development and enhanced parks and trails as examples, and says he also envisions Vigo County as an “athletic destination”.
Kearns, who currently serves on the Vigo County Council, resides in northeastern Vigo County with his wife Sarah and their daughter Mia.
