Beaver seeks reelection


First elected to the Hamilton County Council in 1996, Brad Beaver is looking to serve another four years in his at-large seat.

Watching the county grow at a rapid rate during his time on the council, Beaver said he’s running again to keep working on projects and initiatives that will help the county continue to be a desirable place to work and raise a family.

“The issue most important to me is bringing the best quality of county government at the lowest impact to the taxpayer (by) using my 20-plus years of experience in all areas of county government to provide each department the proper funding to execute their mission at a high level and to look for opportunities to improve the quality of life in Hamilton County,” Beaver said.

Beaver’s priorities include getting the Ind. 37 overhaul project off the ground and navigating the process of constructing a new bridge over White River as well as other road and traffic improvements.

Beaver graduated from Noblesville High School and attended Ivy Tech. For the past 40 years, he’s owned and operated Beaver Heating and Air Conditioning in Noblesville. He has been married to Trini Beaver for 30 years and has three adult children.

As of press time, other candidates to file for the three open at-large seats are Republican incumbents Rick McKinney and Jeff Hern and Republicans Sue Maki, Steve Nation and Lyneen Burrow. The deadline for candidates to file is Feb. 7, and the deadline to register to vote in the May 5 primary election is April 6.
