Aaron Smith has announced his candidacy for the District 3 seat on the Noblesville Common Council. He will run as a Republican in the May 7 primary election against incumbent Rick Taylor.
“By protecting our downtown, better promoting the core of our city and planning for the future, I believe we will be better equipped as a city to face the long-term challenges facing Noblesville,” Smith said in his announcement.
Professionally, Aaron Smith is the president and CEO of Monumental Strategy, LLC, a digital media company based in Noblesville. Prior to founding Monumental Strategy, he worked in various capacities for Sen. Dan Coats, both in his Washington, D.C., and Indianapolis offices.
Smith said he has plans to protect the history, architecture and aesthetic of downtown Noblesville by enacting a building-height limit, keeping clean roads and safe streets, and helping residents maintain their historic homes in Old Town. Smith also noted the importance of a business incubator and mentor program, while supporting students for future careers and more. Making Noblesville a destination also topped Smith’s platform to enhance and encourage public access to White River, equip businesses downtown with more resources to draw new business and provide free Wi-Fi downtown.
