Caucus Information for Harrison Township Trustee Vacancy

The Harrison County Republican Central Committee will caucus on Friday, March 12, at 7:00 p.m. at the Harrison County Government Center in Corydon for the purposes of filling the vacancy for the office of Harrison Township Trustee created by the resignation of Jimmy Mayfield, who has resigned the position due to health issues.

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 Superior Court Judge Joseph Claypool will be on hand 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 Tuesday, March 9, at 7:00 p.m. Individuals interested in seeking the Harrison Township Trustee 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.

We want to thank Jimmy Mayfield for his service as Harrison Township Trustee. He did a great job and was a wonderful public servant. In addition to his service as Trustee, Jimmy has made a difference in countless lives through his career as a firefighter. We are all sad the lingering effects of his accident last year had to cut short his service as Trustee. Please keep him and his family in your prayers.

Corydon Town Council Ward 4 Caucus Results

Due to inclement weather, a quorum was unable to be present at the Harrison County Government Center in Corydon at 7:00 p.m. on the evening of Monday, February 15, for the purposes of filling the vacancy created by the resignation of Tyson Uhl from the Corydon Town Council. Uhl was elected in November of 2019 to the Ward 4 seat on the Corydon Town Council, and resigned from the Town Council to take a new job out of state.

One candidate, Harlan Fisher, filed the necessary paperwork indicating an interest in seeking the position.

Pursuant to IC 3-13-11-8(b), “If a quorum required under the rules of a meeting held under this chapter is not present, the county chairman or an individual designated by the county chairman shall fill the vacancy that exists in the local office.”

A quorum not being present due to weather and after consultation with J. Bradley King, Co-Director of the Indiana Election Division, to confirm the proper procedure, Harrison County Republican Party Chairman Scott Fluhr has appointed Fisher to fill the vacancy.

Harlan Fisher was sworn into office at the Corydon Town Council meeting on the evening of Tuesday, February 16.

We congratulate Harlan on his appointment.

We also want to thank Tyson Uhl for his service on the Corydon Town Council. He did a great job and was a dynamic, engaged public servant. Tyson made an important difference for Corydon, and his leadership was instrumental in bringing a new common sense, conservative vision to Corydon of good government and fiscal responsibility.
