Representative Neese to run for Elkhart Mayor


Indiana State Representative Time Neese, (R) District 48, tells FOX28 he plans to run for Mayor of Elkhart in 2015.

Neese says he's filed a document with the county clerk to form an exploratory committee.  "A Neese administration would be one that would compromise when necessary, but would not at all be hesitant to make difficult decisions,"  Neese says.  "I think there is room for improvement as it relates to the City of Elkhart.  I'm going to, amongst other things, focus on attracting new business, but if that's done, you also want to retain the existing job and create new jobs."

Neese has been in the State House of Representatives for 12 years.  He serves as the chairman of the House Local Government Committee.  "It's allowed me to work with mayors around the state... with regards to a number of city hall issues."

Neese says his current term in the legislature ends in January of 2015.
