Letter: Fellow commissioners endorse Altman

2

Editor,

As Hamilton County continues to grow, and face an increasing population, now more than ever as Commissioners, we must be prepared with historical knowledge, a strategic vision and the know-how to analyze past and current data.

With growth comes both opportunity and challenges. Christine has played a critical role in the success of our County. She has the proven skills to manage the growth and direction of Hamilton County.

We would like to acknowledge a few successful that have come to life during Christine’s 15 years as Commissioner:

  • 146th Street: This corridor was developed by the County Highway Committee that Christine served on when she was first elected to the Hamilton County Council.
  • US 31: Christine continues to serve as a member of the Board of Directors and Treasurer for the US 31 Coalition, where she was instrumental in securing the current improvements to US 31.
  • 146th St Flyover Ramp to Southbound Keystone Parkway and Rangeline Road: During INDOT’s design process for improvements to US 31, Altman served as a member of the Citizens Advisory Commission for the Commissioners. Phase 1 is now under construction with a completion date of 2020, and Phase 2 is scheduled to commence on or before 2021.
  • Hamilton County Solar Project: Utilities are the County’s second highest expense, as the executive body, the Commissioners are always looking for opportunities to save money and reduce the risk of future expenditures. The Solar Project along with energy efficiency measures will save the county well over $25 million in utility and maintenance costs over 25 years. The system is projected to produce about 3,900,000 kWh annually, enough clean electricity to power 465 US homes and reduces carbon emissions by about 3,700 tons CO2 annually.

We are confident Christine will continue to advocate and support investments in infrastructure projects for public safety, court, parks, and transportation systems.

Christine is collaborative, a visionary and an outstanding partner to work on large projects with. Her knowledge is key in continuing to make our County successful.

Vote for Christine Altman on May 8.

Commissioner Mark Heirbrandt and Commissioner Steve Dillinger

    • Eric Morris on

      Hamilton County will collapse if Christine Atlas shrugs! More like, one brick in the crony facade that makes up most of the elected officials in HamCO will crumble.
