Selina Stoller has announced that she will run for Fishers City Council, northwest district.
Stoller, 48, has been a Fishers resident for the past 14 years. A graduate of Purdue University, she is a business development account executive, providing services regarding investments that she has planned and managed for private equity funds.
“My experience in the financial sector provides me with the background needed to understand the complex nature of budgets, finances, bonds and the complexities that surround various taxes and their strategies,” Stoller said.
Stoller, a Republican, has four key goals for the city council if elected:
- Public Safety – “It is critical for Fishers to recognize the potential for crime to increase as it has in neighboring counties,” she said. “I plan to work diligently with the present Fire and Police departments to make certain that Fishers remains on the cutting edge of safety technology and training.”
- Education – “I am supportive of the school leadership and plan to work and encourage state legislators to continue the legacy of educational excellence that Fishers has worked so hard to build and that families have come to expect,” Stoller said. “I will work hard to petition our friends at the state level to rewrite the funding formula so that our schools can continue their excellent educational performance.”
- Strategic Economic Development Plan – “I want to witness and be a part of the expansion of Launch Fishers so that we can incubate new businesses and grow our economy organically,” she said. “I will also work with Mayor Fadness and the administration to engage other enterprises and encourage them to ‘set up shop’ in Fishers.”
- Infrastructure – “I plan to focus on working hard to make sure needed maintenance is done to our streets and roads,” Stoller said. “I am interested in working toward a long-term plan to develop the roads, interchanges and highways that go through Fishers and ensure that traffic jams are minimized and that those that traverse our streets can quickly and safely get from one place to another.”
Stoller is married to John and has two children: Amelia, 19, and Johann, 17.
