Davis announces District 1 council bid


Mike Davis, lifelong Noblesville resident and business owner, has filed to run for the Noblesville Common Council’s District 1.

“I am running for (common council) because I truly love Noblesville,” Davis said in his official announcement. “I’ve been ingrained in Noblesville for my entire life. It’s time for me to give back. It’s time for me to serve. Every day I count my blessings, and I’m thankful to live in one of America’s greatest cities.”

Davis outlined the following platform:

  • Making public safety the No. 1 priority in schools, neighborhoods, parks, downtown and throughout the city.
  • Building a brighter future by making sound financial decisions, proactive and proper planning and respecting the past while making decisions for a successful city.
  • Focusing on roads, parking and traffic, making sure existing and future infrastructure will support a growing population.

Davis attended Noblesville Schools and Ball State University. Moving back to Noblesville after college, he worked for his father’s Noblesville’s company, Davis-Haslam Inc., a manufacturer’s rep agency that sells wholesale fasteners, which opened in 1974. Eventually, Davis bought the company and has run it for the past 25 years.

Davis has served on boards for the Noblesville Elementary Football League, Hamilton County Fifty Club and the North Harbor HOA and is president of the Noblesville Redevelopment Authority Board.  He also has been a coach for Noblesville High School varsity football and supports the Boys & Girls Club of Noblesville and the Humane Society for Hamilton County.

Davis and his wife, Bobbi, have three adult children, Karli, Jake and Hank, all Noblesville Schools graduates. The family has lived in North Harbor for 25 years.
