As St. Joseph County Commissioner, Tim Swager will fight to make government more accountable and efficient.
Tim is a fourth-generation Hoosier who understands the value of service and community. His grandfather served our nation during the Korean War, and returned home to start a small family business that now provides 40 sustainable, good-paying manufacturing jobs right here in Indiana. Tim’s grandfather taught him the importance of fighting for things greater than himself, and about making your community a better place for all of your neighbors.
After graduating from Indiana University, Tim spent four years working on Capitol Hill developing innovative policies to strengthen our economy and expand opportunity. He returned to Northern Indiana to care for his mother and to help run his family’s business.
Now, Tim wants to bring new leadership and fresh ideas to the St. Joseph County Commission. He believes in something simple: that his neighbors deserve a local government that is accountable to taxpayers and can deliver the basic services that families count on. Tim is running for County Commissioner for District 1 because he believes St. Joseph County deserves better than business as usual.
As County Commissioner, Tim Swager will fight to make government more accountable and efficient.
St. Joseph County Deserves Better
- In 2016, over 10,000 emergency calls went unanswered, putting the lives of St. Joe County residents at risk. Politicians in county hall knew about the problem but did nothing.
- The County budget is $6 million in the red because the County Commission President failed to negotiate a contract with our public workers’ & retirees’ health insurance broker. This outstanding negligence puts health coverage at risk for many residents, and it threatens cuts to public services or an unwelcome tax hike.
- Basic government services go undelivered; whether it’s leaf-collection, snowplowing, or fixing potholes, our county commission has failed to meet its obligation to taxpayers.
We deserve better. We need a new generation of leadership that listens to the community and looks after your hard-earned tax dollars. Elect Tim Swager to County Commission for a more accountable, transparent, and efficient St. Joseph County government.
