The former head of the Bartholomew County Youth Services Center and Foundation for Youth is announcing a run for the Bartholomew County Council at-large seat.

Pam Clark made the announcement yesterday, saying that she believes she can help the county with several ongoing financial issues including how to fund road repairs, deputies, the county IT needs, salaries and the parks department. Clark, a Democrat, is self-employed as a consultant and trainer, where she works with the Bartholomew County United Way and the National Partnership for Juvenile Services.

Clark serves on the Indiana University School of Social Work Alumni Association board of directors, the Indiana University Alumni Association Executive Council, the Columbus Behavioral Center Governing Board and on the National Child and Youth Care Certification Board.

There are already four Republicans who have filed to run for the three seats on the council including incumbents Jim Reed, Evelyn Pence and Bill Lentz and Matt Miller.

In other races up for election this year, there are two seats on the Bartholomew County Commissioners, county coroner, county surveyor, three seats on the Hope town board and the Hope clerk-treasurer. The deadline to file is noon on Friday, Feb. 5th.
