Hayden Wins Democratic Primary Race

Bill Hayden, a member of the Hoosier Chapter executive committee and former Hoosier Chapter chair, won the Democratic primary race for Monroe County Council’s District 2 seat. Hayden beat out Travis Vencel by a vote of 784 to 523 and will be opposed by Republican Trenton Jones in the general election in November.

Hayden ran on a slate platform opposing public subsidies for urban sprawl into green space. “I definitely oppose developments in environmentally vulnerable areas, such as major karst features,” said Hayden. “I benefited from the major outcry over just such a development that occurred last year.”
