Tew Election To Council Expected At Tonight's Democratic Caucus

Marion Co. Democratic precinct committeepersons caucus tonight to fill the vacancy created when Zach Adamson gave up his at-large seat on the City-County Council to take the place of District 16 council member Brian Mahern, who recently resigned his seat to begin a new job at the Marion Co. Assessor's Office. Former Marion Co. Democratic Chairman and lobbyist Kip Tew is the only candidate expected to seek election at tonight's caucus meeting to the at-large seat vacated by Adamson, one of the four at-large positions eliminated as a result of a state law enacted by Republicans in hopes of weakening Democrats' narrow hold on control of the council. Tew, who is very close to Democratic mayoral candidate Joe Hogsett, is expected to run for election next year in the newly-drawn District 2 against Republican incumbent council member Will Gooden.
