Republican Ralph Brummett, 63, recently announced he will seek an eighth term on the Washington City Council where he has served as one of two at-large representatives on the council.

“I have enjoyed serving the community and its citizens during my time in office,” Brummett said. “It has allowed me to be involved with a variety of organizations and people who are contributing to the future of Washington.”

Brummett has served as council president and on the Board of Public Works and Safety. He has also served under three mayors while in office.

Brummett said the present council has accomplished many of its goals and is heading in the right direction to complete its long-range goals.

“I realize that there will be many hard decisions coming to the city council in the future, such as with the budgets and taxes,” Brummett said. “But I feel with my background, knowledge and familiarity with city government, I will be able to make the decisions which will keep Washington on the path to a brighter future.”

Brummett is a member of Christ United Methodist Church, Masonic Lodge, the Fraternal Order of Police and is a trustee with the Eagles Lodge. He has worked for the past 29 years for Hoosier Energy.

Also announcing for one of the two at-large seats are fellow incumbent and Republican James Jones and former Democrat mayor Tom Baumert.

Brummett has been married to his wife Cheryl for 44 years. They have two sons, John and Tom, and two grandsons.
