The Indy Star reports that southside businessman Jefferson Shreve has been elected by Republican precinct committeepersons to serve out the remaining time on Jeff Cardwell's City-County Council term. Cardwell, a hardware shop owner, stepped down to take a spot in the Pence Administration earlier this year.
This is the second change of the City-County Council line-up since the current Council took office in January of 2012. In the other instance, former Council President Ryan Vaughn took the Chief of Staff position in Mayor Greg Ballard's Office last year and was replaced by Councillor Will Gooden.
