“I learned about community service as a child, when the people of Marion so generously supported my sister and me when we trained for and competed in the 1988 Olympic Games,” says Seybold. “Since my first election as Mayor in 2003, I have served Marion with a strong commitment to our community and to preserving and increasing jobs and opportunities for all of its citizens. Now, I'd like to share that commitment with Hoosiers across the state – and I'm confident that my extensive experience in city management and private business provides me with the skills to be the state’s next Treasurer.”
Among his many accomplishments as Mayor of Marion, Seybold led the community from economic despair to significant improvement. “When I first took office, our city had 17 percent unemployment and something bold had to be done,” Seybold says. “We turned that around by strongly supporting the automobile industry and job creation, leading to Marion being ranked ninth in the nation in economic development.”
With 11 months remaining until the 2014 primary elections, Seybold’s campaign has already received endorsements from nearly 50 legislators, municipal officeholders, and national, state and community leaders.
“We are encouraged that so many people already share our vision for a sound, fiscally conservative state government,” Seybold adds. “I look forward to meeting Hoosiers across Indiana, listening to their concerns, and serving as State Treasurer to meet their needs.”
