As Rushville and Rush County residents prepare to enter 2014, some of our local officials took the time to respond to some questions posed by the staff of the Rushville Republican. Taking part this year are Kirk Amman (Educator), Mike Pavey (Mayor), Craig Tucker (Chief of Police) and Dr. John Williams (Superintendent of RCS).

Questions and Responses:

1) What goal have you set for the coming year?

AMMAN: My personal goal is to get in shape and cut back on big meals. My professional goal is to help RCHS students achieve excellence in all areas of our school, especially in working with seniors to end their school year successfully and be prepared for their next challenges.

PAVEY: My goal is to continue to improve on communications on all levels. From the cities perspective, my goal is to convey to Rushville’s citizens this administrations direction and how all of the varying projects that are developing are interconnected. As well as, how those projects will advance our community.

TUCKER: I have set many goals for the coming year, but the one I think I will be most challenged by is to complete the Indiana RAIN ride during the summer of 2014. It is a 160 mile bicycle ride across the state of Indiana.

Williams: Make every effort to provide Mr. Vance the enough opportunities to ensure he is prepared to become the next Superintendent of the Rush County Schools upon my retirement in June.

2) What personal accomplishment(s) are you most proud of?

AMMAN: I am most proud of my family, including my wife Lynae, and our four children - Alanah, Anyah, Kaeson, and Arianah. And I am very proud to be an administrator with Rush County Schools - this is a great place to be. We have amazing and genuine people in our community.

PAVEY: It is simple, but I would say being a good husband and father.
