Commissioner candidates plan for employee retention

Bartholomew County government workers saw a slight pay increase last year, but also a large increase in the cost of their healthcare.

We asked the Republican candidates running for Bartholomew County Commissioners District 1 seats how the county can keep and hire good employees with pay lagging behind the private sector.

Incumbent Larry Kleinhenz is running against Susan Thayer-Fye and Jorge Morales for the County Commissioners seat.

Kleinhenz said:

Morales said:

Thayer-Fye said:

Incumbent Republican Commissioner Rick Flohr will also be on the ballot, along with his Democratic challenger Brad Woodcock, for the District 3 seat on the County Commissioners but they are both unopposed and have clear paths to the November general election.
