My service includes Council Rules Committee, Nickel Plate Review Committee, Plan Commission, Finance Committee, and boards of small businesses and nonprofits. Finally, I served as a board member of Janus Developmental Services.

Fishers is consistently ranked as one of the best cities in the country to live, and we will maintain this course by continuing to fund our police and fire departments, investing in quality-of-life amenities for residents, and leading efforts to bring economic growth and jobs to the community, all while maintaining one of the lowest tax rates in the state.

Since moving to Fishers, I’ve attended St. Peter’s United Church of Christ, where I currently serve as technology team lead.


I am running for City Council to make Fishers city government more transparent and responsible in how we use citizen data and AI surveillance, attract and retain creative people and businesses, fully fund and support our teachers and administration in Hamilton Southeastern public schools, and maintain the safety and freedom many of us moved here for.

I am passionate about volunteering. I serve as a mentor for Youth Mentoring Initiative and as a charter member of the Fishers 50 Club. I also served on the HSE school board for 8.5 years.

By serving on the City Council, I will help maintain our great quality of life, emphasize the importance of funding for public safety, and maintain the relationships with our schools and other key nonprofits that help drive the success of our community.

District SC (vote for 1)

My service includes Fishers Police Foundation, Launch Fishers, Phoenix Theater and Riverview Foundation. I am chairman of the City Council’s Budget and Finance Committee, and co-chair of the Fishers GOP Club.

I am running for re-election to continue the amazing work we have accomplished in Fishers in recent years. With our dedicated public safety team, our commitment to economic growth, our world-class amenities, and some of the lowest taxes in the state, we have become one of the most desirable cities in the country to live, work and play.


FishersLane Skeeters – D

I moved to the Indy area in 2009, then Fishers in 2015 to raise my two children. In my career I’ve branched out into many different forms of design.

I was elected HOA president where I served six years. I volunteer at the Humane Society and I’ve served in several roles in the local democratic party.

I didn’t pay attention to local politics until 2019 and what I saw was a complete lack of transparency from the city. We need to engage residents up front, before a project is well underway, and ask what they need, not dictate it.

Compared to other cities of our size, we have very few local amenities – no outdoor shopping venue or district, no movie theaters, no museums, and minimal arts venues. When you want to have fun it almost always involves leaving Fishers. Finally, I want to focus on community. I know what this community is and I want to share it with those who don’t live here.
