You might be wondering what the County Council does. County Council is the governing body of Tippecanoe County that appropriates all funds for county use, adopts county budget, fixes county tax rate, and has exclusive power to borrow money for the County.
I am running for District 4 which includes most of West Lafayette and Purdue University.
There are 7 members:
- 3 elected at-large every presidential year (2016, 2020, etc.)
- 4 elected by district during midterm years (2014, 2018, 2022, etc.)
The 4 seats elected by district are up for election in this year! In addition to my own candidacy for District 4, Democrats have Ilana Stonebraker running for District 1, and Erica Beumel running for District 2.
