Gabhart challenging Wilson for Commissioner seat in primary

Daviess County residents will have a local primary race to decide this May. Nathan Gabhart of Alfordsville has announced his candidacy for the Republican nomination for the District 1 County Commissioner seat. Gabhart is challenging incumbent Republican Commissioner Larry Wilson who is seeking a second term in office.

In making his announcement Gabhart said, “It’s critical for our future success to have people involved at all levels of government that have the experience and ability to lead, strategize and make the decisions needed in order to keep our county moving in the right direction. I am also a firm believer the more like a business you run anything the more successful it will be. You must be able to maintain your current infrastructure and also plan for the future simultaneously. I am also very excited about the opportunities we have in Daviess County due to I-69 being completed and also with I-67 being discussed.”

Gabhart graduated from the Purdue University School of Pharmacy in 1998. He was the recipient for numerous awards for leadership and was the first student national officer for the American Pharmacists Association in the history of Purdue. He currently serves as President of the Community Pharmacies of Indiana and is the immediate past President of the Indiana Pharmacists Association.

Gabhart is also a certified Court Appointed Special Advocate for Daviess County, assisting children who are in need of services. He serves on the Pastoral Council and Executive Committee for Our Lady of Hope Parish and has served on the school board at St. Joseph’s school in Princeton.

Professionally, Gabhart worked for Williams Brothers HealthCare Pharmacy for almost 16 years, most recently serving as Vice President of Pharmacy Operations. In 2007, he helped co-found True Rx management services where he served as CEO. He later left those companies to create TrueScripts, a prescription benefit management company, located in Daviess County and serves as its CEO.
