Two Allen County residents have thrown their hats into the ring to replace outgoing County Councilman Justin Busch as he prepares to take over for retiring State Sen. David Long.
Republican Adam Welch this week announced his intention to seek Busch's seat when the Allen County Republican Party holds a caucus in the coming weeks. It's not yet clear when a caucus will be held.
"Our county continues to be recognized across the state and region for its welcoming business climate and disciplined fiscal responsibility," Welch said in a statement. "I hope to earn the opportunity to serve Allen County residents in order to protect taxpayers while also setting a vision for our community's future."
