Great Communities Embrace Partnerships
Today's businesses are competing against one another for talent. Their relationship with their communities is symbiotic. The community's role is supporting the needs of that workforce.
Debt is destructive
Government needs to be solvent. To bring on debt and pass it from generation to generation is to basically handcuff our children. When we invest in our communities, we must invest with an idea of an ROI - financial or quality of life.
Strong Local Self-Government
Local government action or inaction has a greater impact on you than the Federal government. The best communities steer clear of national issues and focus on the specific needs of their communities. Hamilton County continues to lead the way in that regard.
Ken’s family has deep roots in Indiana but his family’s military service has spread their extended family across the United States. Ken is a 4th generation graduate of Purdue University. He and his wife, Jenni, met when he was working on the construction of the Jordan Hall of Science at Notre Dame. Upon completion of that project and the Eck School of Law expansion, they relocated to Hamilton County originally in Carmel (Saddle Creek) in 2007 before moving to Westfield (Merrimac) in 2015.
Ken and his family are active in several clubs, community organizations and their church, St. Christopher’s Episcopal Church in Carmel. Their three children all participate in several recreational and travel sports and their daughter is a consistent performer in the Christian Youth Theater (CYT). Ken has worked in the construction industry for the past 20+ years and is currently the State Account Executive for Johnson Controls’ Connected Technology division. His wife, Jenni, has been an educator for her entire career and is currently a science teacher at Cathedral High School.
While the family never lived here in their youth, they have all learned to respect all that Hamilton County has to offer. His older brother, Greg, and his family moved to Carmel in the early 2000’s. Their father, George, moved to Carmel after spending several years taking care of his parents in Bloomington following his retirement. The matriarch of the family, Lynn, moved to Fishers in 2014 where she balances the duties of a grandmother with her volunteer efforts at Conner Prairie and her love of golf. Ken’s twin brother, Jeff, lives in Brooklyn with his wife and provides us the opportunity to visit the big city every once in a while which only reinforces our love for our community. We are all so blessed to live in Hamilton County and we hope you feel the same too.
