Where they stand Q&A: Jan Jarson


Why are you the best candidate for office?

I am in my eighth year and much has been accomplished, but there’s so much more to do. I have served as liaison for New Palestine to the Service Advisory Board/Citizens Energy-Water, Hancock Economic Development, Metropolitan Planning Organization and with other communities. I have built relationships in our community, both governmental, corporate and private that will continue to enable our hometown to flourish. New Palestine and Hancock County are experiencing positive growth, and we are poised for even more growth. I would love to continue to help guide that growth for our future.

What is the most pressing issue facing New Palestine?

Maintaining the level of services we provide, i.e. streets, sewer, police, sidewalks and trails as a few examples, while promoting positive growth and continued planning for the future.
