Cass County’s first female county commissioner is ready to run for Congress.
Indiana State Treasurer Kelly Mitchell has announced her intent to seek the Republican nomination for Congress in Indiana’s 5th Congressional District.
The 5th District takes the north side of Indianapolis as well as its eastern and northern suburbs, including Marion, Carmel, Anderson, Noblesville, Fishers, and parts of Kokomo. It’s currently represented by Susan Brooks.
Kelly was elected as the first female County Commissioner in Cass County and the youngest county commissioner in the state. She served two terms.
She was elected Indiana State Treasurer in 2014 and re-elected in 2018 with nearly 59 percent of the vote.
