In 1988, Spilman married Marilyn Herbert. Together, they are the parents of two children; Erica, 22, a senior at Ball State University and Aaron, 17, a junior at RCHS. Spilman and his family are members of the St. Mary’s Catholic Church.
“I feel that over the last eight years on the county council I have learned a great deal about the inner workings of county government,” Spilman said. “It’s been challenging at times, but also very rewarding. With my years of experience working with the public and the county council, I feel I’m the right person for the job of Recorder, and I pledge to continue serving the Rush County community to the best of my ability.”
