Harrison Township Board Caucus Results

The Harrison Township members of the Harrison County Republican Central Committee met in caucus on Saturday, January 25, at 10:00 a.m. at the Harrison County Government Center in Corydon for the purposes of filling the vacancy created by the resignation of Lester Rhoads from the Harrison Township Advisory Board. Rhoads was elected this past November to the Ward 3 seat on the Corydon Town Council, and resigned from the Advisory Board effective December 31.

Seven (out of eleven) precinct committeemen were present. One candidate filed a declaration indicating an interest in seeking the position.

The candidate was Rhonda Rhoads, who has served previously as an at-large county council member and as State Representative for District 70, representing most of Harrison County.

The caucus selected Rhoads to fill the vacancy. A formal vote was required to take place under Indiana state law even though she was unopposed. The vote was unanimous.

The Honorable John Evans, Judge of the Harrison Circuit Court, was on hand to swear in Rhonda Rhoads after the vote.

Caucus Information for Harrison Township Board Vacancy

The Harrison County Republican Central Committee will caucus on Saturday, January 25, at 10:00 a.m. at the Harrison County Government Center in Corydon for the purposes of filling the vacancy on the Harrison Township Advisory Board created by the resignation of Lester Rhoads, who was elected to the Corydon Town Council for Ward 3.

Only precinct committee members from Harrison Township may vote in this caucus. Precinct vice committee members may vote as proxies for their absent precinct committee member.

Voting will be by private ballot and will continue until one candidate has reached a majority of the precinct committee members and proxies that are present.

Indiana law empowers the county chairman to break a tie if one exists, but the county chairman will not be exercising this authority. Voting will continue until the tie is broken by the committee members and their proxies.

Once the caucus has selected who will fill the vacancy, the county chairman will certify the result to the Circuit Court Clerk. Harrison Circuit Court Judge John Evans will be on hand that morning to swear in whoever is chosen to fill the vacancy.

Individuals interested in seeking the vacancy must file a written declaration of candidacy (CEB-5 form) with Harrison County Republican Party Chairman Scott Fluhr no later than 72 hours before the caucus, in this case by Wednesday, January 22 at 10:00 a.m. Individuals interested in seeking the Harrison Township Advisory Board position can contact him via email address on the right. The necessary forms are available from the Circuit Court Clerk's office or via the aforementioned email address.

The caucus meeting on the morning of January 25 will be open to the public.

Merry Christmas

The Harrison County Republicans hope that you and your family have a safe and very merry Christmas.

And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.

And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.

And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,

Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

- Luke 2:8-14

Have a very merry Christmas!
