From Local Sources
JASPER — Philip Mundy has announced his intentions to seek the Republican nomination for re-election to the Jasper Common Council at-large seat.
Mundy was selected by caucus in late December to fill the seat vacated by Dean Vonderheide after Vonderheide was selected as mayor.
“As a small business owner and building owner in downtown Jasper, I have been excited about the direction the community is going with the many construction projects, library and cultural center, upgrades to our parks system, etc.,” Mundy, 56, said in a press release. “I would love to see this continue as fiscally possible.”
He added: “After discussing these changes and improvements to our community, I feel we need to stay the course and continue so businesses, both large and small, can attract quality employees to contine to grow. We must also as a community do what we can to attract and maintain our greatest resources — our next generation, whether entering the work force or after high school or returning after college or vocational school or training.”
Mundy is co-owner of Adventures Recreation and Gear and has been a local business and building owner in Jasper for 25 years.
He is a former president, vice president and secretary of the Greater Jasper Downtown Business Association, a DCMultisport board member, and a former board member and coach of several youth sports organizations and a former grade school coach. He is a former school board president and booster club president at Holy Family School, as well as a board member and organizer of several charity events, such as the Strassenfest bike ride, Spirit of Jasper Duathlon/5K, and area cycling and running events.
He and his family are members of St. Joseph Catholic Church. He and his wife, Karen, have two adult children — Ben and Anna.
