Steve Foreman has announced his bid as a write-in candidate for a seat on the Warren County Board of Supervisors.
Foreman seeks the board seat representing the Fork Magisterial District. Vicky Cook, the Warren County Republican Committee's vice chairwoman, is also seeking the seat, and her name will appear on the ballot.
Foreman has a background in communication and holds a bachelor of arts degree in business administration from National-Louis University, according to a media release from his campaign. The release states that Foreman feels he is well-suited to help the board with ongoing plans to expand broadband internet in the area.
Election Day is Nov. 2, although early voting has started the local voter registrar's office.
Foreman supervised multi-state engineering initiatives as a project manager for Sprint. Foreman states in the release that he brings a “fresh viewpoint into county leadership and can build on the progress started by the last additions to the board.”
Foreman worked as a lineman in northern Indiana and plans to work with the School Board to make sure they have the resources needed for vocational training in order to educate students looking for careers in technologies such as high-speed internet and solar power.
