Block, Coble to run for city council


Two local residents have announced their candidacy for Fishers City Council At-Large.

Richard Block, a Republican and President and owner of Paragon Realty commercial real estate, and Cecilia Coble, Republican Party leader and community servant, are running for Fishers City Council for 2014.

Block is a 20-year Fishers resident. He serves as the current President of the Fishers Town Hall Building Corporation, which handles municipal building lease transactions, and served on the Hamilton Southeastern SPORTS board for five years. He was president of HSE SPORTS for three years.

Block said he believes he can add value to Fishers with his experience in land planning, business partnering and financial and tax matters.

A believer in continued responsible development within the Fishers downtown and Nickel Plate areas to build a strong central business district, Block supports the tech incubator initiative, Launch Fishers, and would like to replicate its success within other businesses and industries.

Recognizing the importance of Fishers’ school system in attracting residential growth, Block plans to ensure HSE schools have the support necessary to remain high-performing and highly-ranked. He also wants to create venues to serve the families of Fishers and make the city a community of choice for all ages.

Block is married to Betsy; they have four children together.

Coble earned her law degree at the Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law in Indianapolis and has worked for Bank One Financial Services in government relations.

In recent years, she has served Fishers and Central Indiana through her extensive involvement with the Bev Hartig Huntington Disease Foundation, the Christamore House Guild, the Hamilton County Federation of Republican Women, and as the Indiana Chapter Co-Coordinator for Talk About Curing Autism.

Coble has also been appointed to the Governor’s Council for People with Disabilities and has been asked to be on the Town of Fishers – ADA Citizens Advisory Taskforce.

“My work experience and extensive community service involvement have taught me to be an incisive listener and a seeker of common-sense solutions,” Coble added. “I believe my skills will be a valuable asset as Fishers continues to grow and prosper.”

Coble lives in Fishers with her husband of nearly 20 years and their two daughters. In 2012, she represented Indiana as an At-Large Alternate Delegate to the Republican National Convention.
