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.

Caucus Information for Corydon Town Council Ward 4 Vacancy

The Harrison County Republican Central Committee will caucus on Monday, February 15, at 7:00 p.m. at the Harrison County Government Center in Corydon for the purposes of filling the vacancy for Ward 4 on the Corydon Town Council created by the resignation of Tyson Uhl, who has resigned to move to a new job in another state.

Only precinct committee members from the Town of Corydon 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 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 Friday, February 12 at 7:00 p.m. Individuals interested in seeking the Ward 4 Corydon Town Council 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 evening of February 15 will be open to the public.

Thank You!

Yesterday, voters in Harrison County went to the polls and made history. A higher proportion of votes were cast for Republicans in an election than ever before in county history.

It was also historic in many other ways, including the third consecutive election in Harrison County history in which the Republicans won every county race. The election marks the continuation of the service of a unified three-member Republican Board of Commissioners and of a seven-member Republican County Council. All county offices will continue to be held by Republicans.

Harrison County also voted overwhelmingly for President Donald Trump, Congressman Trey Hollingsworth, Governor Eric Holcomb, Attorney General-Elect Todd Rokita, and State Representatives Karen Engleman and Steve Davisson.

This was an unprecedented campaign season due to the pandemic, but it was also unprecedented in the unwavering support your Republican candidates received from the people of Harrison County from the start of the campaign to the end.

Voters stood in line for up to four hours to cast their votes early, a record number of people mailed their ballots in, and there were lines when the polls opened on Election Day. It is the highest turnout, both in actual voters and percentage, in Harrison County history.

This was the victory coming from the tireless efforts of many. It came after a lot of hard work and dedication by a lot of great people: citizens, volunteers, candidates, and their family members. Most importantly, it came from the votes of the people of Harrison County.

From the top of the ticket to the bottom, the voters of Harrison County were presented with two dramatically different political ideologies and visions of America. They decisively favored a conservative, Republican platform.

It would be easy to dismiss the election result as "tribalism", as if there is something somehow wrong with citizens voting for candidates that hold their same beliefs.

This would be a shallow election explanation ignorant of critical facts. Every single Republican candidate's margin of victory was well ahead of the advantage they received for straight ticket votes. Further, straight ticket votes did not count toward the result in the county council race, where the outcome was even more decisive. These results came from the candidates, not from the political party labels alone.

The election season in our area is now at an end. The work of continuing to bring good government to Harrison County and working for everyone in our county remains ahead.

As we said in the campaign, keeping America great starts right here in Harrison County, and we intend to do our part.

In the days, weeks, months, and years to come, your Republican elected officials will—as always—strive to serve Harrison County, Indiana, and America with honor, integrity, and conservative common sense.

We will continue to deliver good, conservative government. We also hope to continue to provide a government of which you can be proud.

Thank you for your support, your prayers, and your vote.

This was truly your victory.
