Wesseler, Mowery Join City-County Council GOP Caucus

As is typical of local government, the layer most close to the public is often the one you hear the least about.

Republicans Jack Sandlin and Aaron Freeman left the City-County Council in November of last year. The duo took their “talents” to the Indiana Senate this January leaving two conspicuous open seats on the Council. Those seats have been filled.
John Wesseler, who according to the IBJ is a U.S. Army Veteran and has an extensive background in law enforcement, won the caucus to replace Sandlin. The Homecroft resident joined the Council in December.
Also joining the Council last month is Councillor Brian Mowery. On the positive side, Mowery seems to be excellent with social media with active Twitter and Facebook accounts. He lives in Franklin Township.

So, that means the Council is now comprised of the following 25 individuals. I’ve tried to list them by seniority on the Council.

Monroe Gray 11/23/1992 (Goldsmith)
Duke Oliver 1/1/2004 (Peterson)
