Former Carmel mayor and city council member Jane Reiman filed as a candidate last week for city council. Reiman filed as a Republican and will oppose current councilman Eric Seidensticker in the May primary.
Reiman served as mayor in the 1980s and has within the past two years moved back to the city after living with her family in Corydon, Indiana.
“I have the time, the experience and certainly the interest to serve on our city council once again. I would insist on fiscal restraint and civility in government,” the Reiman said in a statement.
The candidate, mother of two grown daughters and five grandchildren, Reiman first moved in Carmel in 1967. An active member of the Carmel United Methodist Church, Mrs. Reiman is also a member of the Carmel Clay Historical Society and the Carmel Clay Republican Club.
Today is the first day to file candidacies for this year’s municipal elections. Carmel voters will be electing a mayor, clerk-treasurer, city judge and seven council members who will serve for the next four years.
