On Jan. 23, Jason Myers became the first Democrat to file for candidacy in the Noblesville municipal primary election.
Myers will seek the District 5 Noblesville Common Council seat held by Republican Greg O’Connor, who is seeking re-election. As of press time, no other candidates had filed, meaning O’Connor and Myers will run unopposed in the May 7 primary.
“I love Noblesville and have been passionate about serving my community for quite some time and want to bring a new perspective to the council,” Myers said in his announcement. “I would be honored to serve my community with the same integrity and graciousness they have shown my family and I. I want to make sure their voices are heard.”
Myers said he plans to bring transparency to the decision-making process and continue to protect the city’s rich history.
“We must ensure that we have strong infrastructure, safe schools and that our police officers, (firefighters) and civil servants alike have the resources they need to support such growth,” Myers said. “We must work with the local community and law enforcement to promote safe neighborhoods and reduce things like package theft and vandalism. We must act responsibly with tax dollars we are given while making sure that Noblesville continues to be a great place to live and to work.”
Myers has lived in Noblesville for nearly 10 years with his wife, Adriane. They have two sons, Jack, 3, and Luke, 1. Myers has a bachelor’s degree from Indiana University. He is an Eagle Scout and works as a quality manager at a rapid prototyping facility in Noblesville.
