Bartholomew County Commissioner Rick Flohr is announcing that he plans to run for re-election.

Flohr, a retired business owner, was first elected four years ago. He said that he would like to continue to work on projects that are before the commissioners. Although several issues have turned contentious in the past few years, he has enjoyed working toward compromises.

Flohr said he has also really enjoyed being able to help people with issues that they bring before the county government such as road concerns or drainage problems.

Flohr, 65, said he that if re-elected, he would be 70 years old at the end of his second term and plans to leave office after that. Flohr, a Republican, is the only candidate yet to announce for the District 3 commissioners seat.

The filing period for this year’s election opened on Wednesday and runs until noon on Friday, February 5th.

According to the Bartholomew County Clerk’s office, several people have already filed with the Secretary of State’s office for state positions representing Bartholomew County.

Republican incumbent Jim Lucas has filed to runĀ againĀ for the Indiana House District 69 seat along with Republican Nancy Franke.
