Paul Lorey is seeking the Republican nomination for the Jasper Common Council District 5 seat.

“My family and I have been blessed to live and work in the Jasper and Dubois County community and experience the growth and changes in the area,” Lorey said. “I have enjoyed serving the city of Jasper on the Plan Commission for the last 7 years and look forward to tackling some of the challenges to keep this a great community for years to come. Looking forward I would like to continue to address the issues at hand for business employment staffing challenges, enticing and retaining young talent [through] a quality of life, a clean city with outstanding streets, and an ongoing focus on affordable housing.”

Lorey said he has “spent a tremendous amount of time working with the city and community on the Unified Development Ordinance” and is now focused on the “Comprehensive Plan helping to guide the city for the next 15-20 years.”

“We have so much momentum going for the city right now and I am honored to help guide the area going forward,” Lorey said.

He currently serves on the Jasper Plan Commission and the Indiana 15 Regional Planning Commission. He is a member of St. Joeseph Catholic Church and the Knights of Columbus, and coaches multiple teams in the Jasper youth soccer league.
