Deborah Major has filed to seek the Democratic nomination to the Dubois County Council, District 3 seat.

Major has a bachelor’s degree in food, nutrition and institutional management from the University of Alabama. She is retired after 38 years of institutional management. She has served in hospitals, industry and higher education, including as food service director at Person Memorial Hospital in North Carolina, Clark Memorial Hospital in Jeffersonville, GE Appliance Park, and Saint Meinrad Seminary and School of Theology. She developed institutional budgets, revenue-generating projects, management policies, and has experience with analyzing budgets, sales, accounting and payroll functions, as well as personnel hiring, development and training.
“I am fiscally conservative and believe that all spending be subject to well-reasoned cost-benefit analysis,” Major said. “I look forward to serving the citizens of Dubois County on the County Council.”
Major has chaired fundraising committees for the Forest Park Marching Rangers and the Fund for the Arts in Louisville, Kentucky. She has also served on the boards of the American Red Cross and the Easter Seals Foundation in Jeffersonville, and completed leadership training in Clark County.
