But there will be no mayoral challenges.
Republican Denny Spinner will embark on his third term as mayor of Huntingburg. Republican Dean Vonderheide will serve his first full term as mayor of Jasper; he is currently completing his first year as mayor, having been appointed to the position by caucus.
