From Local Sources


HUNTINGBURG — Keith “Curly” Souders is running on the Republican ticket for the at-large seat on the Huntingburg Common Council.

Souders graduated from Southridge High School in 1974 and the University of Evansville in 1978. He has lived and worked in Huntingburg his entire life, having retired from United Minerals in 2017. At United Minerals, he was responsible for purchasing, equipment acquisitions, machine availability and equipment budgeting.

“This cost-cutting experience will be an asset to Huntingburg, if elected,” he said.

He has served as president of the Indiana Mining and Technical Society for more than 20 years, served on the Huntingburg Board of Public Works and Safety, and has served as president and board member of the Huntingburg Country Club and a member of the YMI.

“Serving on the Board of Public Works, with Mayor [Denny] Spinner has given me an understanding of the needs that the various department heads require,” Souders said. “I look forward to using my work experience with United Minerals to help keep Huntingburg running efficiently and at the same time be cost effective.”

Souders has a daughter, Courtney, who resides in Newburgh.

“I have recently retired from the mining industry,” he said, “which will give me the time it takes to serve the City of Huntingburg’s common council with the dedication it deserves.”
