Our City Council’s job is to represent and serve all Fishers residents effectively.
Yesterday, the Indianapolis City-County Council gave us another reminder that Fishers City Council isn’t representing and serving us as well as it should. These two disparate quotes demonstrate that servant-leadership is truly missing in Fishers.

INDIANAPOLIS:
“Our job, as I understand it, is to be representatives to our constituents,” Vop Osili (Indianapolis City-County Council President) says. “Are we being effective in doing that? Are we acting as a point of contact, a voice, to ensure that our residents are being heard?”

FISHERS:
“I’ve not heard this complaint from people until, literally, in the last week or two, that there’s a transparency issue,” Rich Block (Fishers City Council President) says. “To me, it’s also incumbent on members of the public to be informed, read, and if they have questions can attend council meetings or other (meetings).”

The Fishers City Council is supposed to working for us. Instead, local leaders believe that we need to work harder for them.

I am running for Fishers City Council as the only Democratic At-Large (citywide) candidate on November 5.

With your help, I am redefining how our City Council should be serving all residents. Together, we can make a difference and have a voice. Please share with me your ideas and feedback. Please join my team by signing up here.
Thank you,
-Jocelyn

  1. Do you think it is OK for Eric Moeller to use his wife and position to try to influence HOA laws in Indiana ( not Fishers)?

    Should he be held accountable for using private email (Gmail) to conduct official business and then when. FOIA request is filed for his communications it returns nothing?

    Should Ceeila Coble be allowed to exchange money for votes when she was in charge of approving tax payer grant money?

    Ever wondered why she left that position?

      Thank you very much for your questions. Without all of the facts, I can’t comment about the specific issues that you raise. But I know this for sure … Residents must hold our elected leaders accountable. This requires the release of information to the public and opportunities for residents to interact meaningfully with our local elected officials. I am running for Fishers City Council to improve resident participation in our local government and implement genuine checks & balances.
