I know we just got finished with the midterm elections and people might be burned out on politics for a while, but the 2019 municipal elections are just around the corner, and I want to tell you about a candidate who is always working hard to make a positive difference in his community.
Adam Aasen is a local business owner and tireless community volunteer who is running for the Carmel City Council’s southeast district. He’s looking to replace Jeff Worrell, who has announced he’s running at-large.
Adam and his family own Donatello’s Italian Restaurant, and they often host charity events at their business to support local nonprofits. I know any time I need a gift card donated for a charitable cause they are happy to help.
Just the other day, Adam’s mother, Beth, baked and donated an entire pistachio cake that raised $670 for Restored, a local nonprofit that helps victims of human trafficking. They also hosted a day where 10 percent of all sales went to fight childhood cancer in honor of a child in Carmel who died of a brain tumor.
Through Dec. 10, Donatello’s is hosting a toy drive to help children in the foster care system.
In addition to giving back through his business, Adam serves on numerous nonprofit boards and I often see him volunteering at local events.
Anyone can say they care about our community, but Adam has proven it with his actions. He’s a humble guy who doesn’t like bragging about himself, so I’m happy to do it for him.
I encourage everyone to support Adam Aasen in the 2019 city council elections. Learn more at adamaasen.com.
