Templeton, McKinney announce candidacies


Hamilton County’s chief deputy treasurer is running for that office’s top position.

Last week, Jennifer Templeton announced her candidacy for Hamilton County treasurer in the May Republican primary election. The Cicero resident has been employed with the treasurer’s office for 17 years, serving as the chief deputy for the last seven.

“If elected, I will use the experience and knowledge I have to keep the office running efficiently, using the latest technologies, maintain the partnership with local banks and vendor and continue to offer the best customer service possible,” Templeton said in a release.

The current treasurer, Kim Good, is nearing the end of her second term in office and is ineligible for a third. Last month, Dixie Packard announced her candidacy for the position. Packard was elected Clay Township assessor in 1994 and continues to manage the Clay Township Assessing Office.

On Jan. 13, Rick McKinney filed for the primary election in which he will seek another term as an at-large member of the Hamilton County Council.

“I believe I should be reelected because I am the one official who, to his word, has kept all promises made in all of my campaigns,” he said in a release.

John Accetturo, former Carmel City councilman, also filed his declaration of candidacy this month for an at-large council seat.
