Gerald Mohr announces candidacy for County Council District One

Gerald Mohr is married to Anita (Smith) Mohr and they are parents to Brian (Katie) Mohr and Brett (Andrea) Mohr. They are proud grandparents to Hailey, Spencer, Carter and Asha Mohr.

Gerald started his career in Rush County upon graduation from Indiana State University to teach at Jackson Elementary School. He further served Rush County as the RCHS Swimming Coach, Principal at Manilla, Arlington, Mays and Rushville Elementary Schools. He retired from Rush County School as Assistant Superintendent in 2002 to assume the Associate Executive Director Position at the Indiana Association of School Principals. He spent many years working to inform legislators on education, government, fire, health and tax issues. He retired in October 2012 as Executive Director at IASP. It is important to locally have active voices with state legislators to support county issues.

Service to others has been a major force in his life as he worked in the community to help make Rush County a better place to work and live. Service as Rotary Club Past President, Rush County Community Foundation Past President, Rush County Players Board Past President, Youth Philanthropy of Indiana Initiative Board member, First Presbyterian Church Elder & Stewardship Committee member, Community In Schools Board member and United Fund Division Chairman are a few of the areas of service involvement.

The responsibility for the school budget, school corporation budget oversight, grant budgets, non-profit association budgets, county budget maintenance for over 20 years, family farm budget, community foundation finance, and board review of several state wide non-profit association budgets have created a wide experience base for current and future Rush County Council budgets.

The past few years we have seen cost increase with capped or shrinking revenue. To protect public safety and the essential functions of county government is an expectation of all citizens. Experience and creativity is essential in finding budget solutions to fund needed services and mandate changes. We must continue to explore avenues of cooperation between city and county government on many projects to provide economic stability.
