Dear Fellow Monroe County Democrats,
I am excited to announce my candidacy for the Bloomington Township Board. I am running because I believe that government at the local level can make a positive impact on people’s lives, and it would be a privilege to serve the people of Bloomington Township. With the impact of I-69, there will be many challenging issues facing the township and I would like to be a part of solving them.

Ryan Cobine is seeking election to the district 2 Monroe County Council seat. "I'm excited at the prospect of helping Monroe County government serve the people," Cobine said. "With all the constraints and complexity of county government it is crucial to keep the Council's process of appropriating funds open and collaborative". "A key budget priority", said Cobine, "will be to make sure county government departments are supported so they can adapt to all the evolving expectations citizens have around sustainability and environmental changes--from extreme weather to I-69".
Michelle Bright has announced that she will seek re-election as Benton Township Trustee. Bright was voted into office in a Democratic caucus in March 2012 to replace the previous trustee, who the state has charged with misappropriating $97,000 in township funds.
