Last Updated on November 28, 2022 by Nelms At-Large

City Councilman Jonathan Nelms announced his intention to seek a second term at the Cass County Republican Party’s Fall Fundraiser last month. Nelms seeks to retain one of the two At-Large seats voted on in the 2023 Logansport municipal election.

“In my first three years on the City Council, I’m proud of what we have accomplished working together. Logansport has made great strides, and we’re just getting started,” said Nelms. “If elected to a second term, I’m committed to keeping our momentum going.”

When elected in 2019, Nelms was the youngest City Councilor in Logansport history and one of the youngest in the State of Indiana. In addition to serving his community as a Councilman, Nelms is a member of the Indiana National Guard, where he continues his mission of public service. Despite his age, Nelms has been a leader on the Logansport City Council, helping to secure funding for large-scale sidewalk improvements with a federal 80/20 matching grant program. Additionally, Nelms worked closely with the Logansport Police Department to assist in the development of plans for Logansport’s new police station. As a staunch supporter of community improvement, Nelms has proudly supported virtually all legislation to better our infrastructure. As a fiscal conservative, he prioritizes smart spending of tax dollars.

In his second term, Nelms will focus on:
– Continuing economic development projects
– Improving infrastructure, including sidewalks that can no longer be safely used
– Supporting the Police and Fire Departments so that they have the tools they need to do their jobs safely and successfully
– Assist in Logansport’s next act – continuing progress, together!

“I’m proud of what we’ve accomplished so far and thrilled to have the opportunity to represent Logansport for another term,” Nelms stated.

Logansport’s general election is Tuesday, November 7, 2023, with the primary election on Tuesday, May 2, 2023.
