A Bartholomew County Democrat has filed to run for County Commissioner.
48-year-old Brad Woodcock has filed to run for the District 3 seat on the County Commissioners, now held by Republican Rick Flohr.
Woodcock said he decided to run because he believes he can provide a fresh approach especially on long-term projects. He cited the collapse of the State Street annex replacement project as an issue of concern because it affected county employees, residents and the entire State Street area.
Woodcock worked at Toyota for 18 years and is now working in real estate investments. He is a Columbus East graduate.
Woodcock filed for office Wednesday. Other recent candidates to file for office in Bartholomew County include Flohr and Larry Kleinhenz, the long-time County Commissioner for District 1.
The filing period for this year’s elections closes on Friday Feb. 5th at noon.
