As a longtime Carmel resident and Carmel High School graduate, Laura Campbell believes her deep ties to the city and its residents make her an ideal candidate for city council.
Campbell, a Republican, is facing a challenge from Democrat William Howard in the Nov. 5 municipal election. They are hoping to represent the North District, a new district formed as a result of Carmel becoming a second-class city. Campbell is nearing the end of her first term serving the Northwest District.
“Due to the length of time I have lived in the city and have been active in Carmel and through my work on city council, I have a very thorough knowledge of the city,” she said. “I communicate with people throughout the city and hear from people of all different backgrounds. I have the flexibility to spend the amount of time it takes to serve the residents of Carmel. It is more than just two meetings a month. There are a lot of meetings and phone calls with constituents that take place in between the council meetings.”
Campbell said her campaign is focusing on ensuring Carmel continues to be one of the best places to live in the nation. She also wants to ensure that the city has high-quality roads and infrastructure, low crime and a low tax rate.
If reelected, Campbell plans to continue working on improving disability awareness and mental health initiatives in the city. She is developing a Carmel Advisory Committee on Disability that will focus on accessibility, employment and social interaction issues.
Campbell is married to Rick Campbell and has a daughter and two sons. She serves as chair of the Hamilton County Republican Party and is a board member with Discovering Broadway.
