A local banker has announced his candidacy for a Washington City Council seat. Eric Headley has announced that he is running for the Republican nomination for the second district city council seat.
Headley is vice-president of lending at First Federal Savings Bank in Washington. He is a Washington High School graduate and holds a bachelor's degree from the Indiana University School of Public and Environmental Affairs.
Headley and his wife Stacey moved back to Washington nine years ago and they have three children.
"Moving here was a choice I made because I care about the community and the people who live here," said Headley. "The next 10 years are very important for the future of Washington. I want to represent the citizens and make decisions to improve the quality of life for future generations."
Headley has served on numerous community boards over the last nine years. He is currently treasurer for the Chuck Harmon Little League and finance council for Our Lady of Hope Church as well as the finance council for the United Way of Daviess County.
He formerly served on the Daviess County Chamber of Commerce board, including one term as president of the board.
Headley is seeking the seat currently held by Second District Republican Councilman Allen Brown. Brown says he also intends to seek re-election to the seat.
