Brad DeReamer is running for re-election to the Fishers City Council from the Northeast District.
DeReamer was first elected in 2015. He also serves on the Fishers Plan Commission and the Fishers Plat Committee. Prior to his council term, he was the Hancock County surveyor for three terms, a member of the Hancock Plan Commission and was the mayor of Greenfield from 2008 to 2011. He moved to Fishers in 2012 and became active in the CITY YES campaign, which had the goal to convert Fishers into a second-class city.
“I believe in the vision for Fishers, (being a) smart, vibrant, entrepreneurial city,’” DeReamer said. “Being a past serial entrepreneur and past mayor, I agree with the vision of making Fishers the Midwest IT and entrepreneurial city instead of the East and West coast cities. I am running for re-election to help continue with what has been started for Fishers. Being retired, I have plenty of time to respond to hundreds of emails I get from the residents to help them with their concerns.”
During his time on the council, DeReamer has worked with the Hamilton Southeastern Schools Board of Trustees and the city to install sidewalks in Avalon on Thames Drive on the west side of Thorpe Creek Elementary and the path on the north side of 126th Street in front of the school for increased safety. He has worked with the city to install sidewalks on the south side of 126th Street and has worked with the Gray Eagle HOA to save the Gray Eagle Golf Course from closing.
To better communicate with constituents, DeReamer publishes a monthly newsletter for the HOAs in his district.
DeReamer graduated from Purdue University with a degree in mathematics and education, received his master’s in land surveying from Purdue and served in the Army Reserves and the Indiana National Guard. He has been married to Sharon for 39 years. They five kids, 14 grandchildren and one great-grandchild on the way. He lives in Britton Falls.
