I am Karen Shell. My husband Dave and I have lived in HVL for 22 years. We have 3 daughters, Christina, Deborah, and Angela. We have 13 grandchildren and 3 great grandsons.
I have had the privilege of serving the people of Dearborn County in various elected offices and boards. My public service credentials are as follows:
Harrison Township Trustee 1982-1986
Dearborn County Treasurer 1989-1994
Dearborn County Auditor 1995-2000
Dearborn County Commissioner (District 1) 2001-2004
Solid Waste Board 2000-2004
Past member Dearborn County Chamber of Commerce and Visitor’s Bureau
Former member of Indiana Association of Counties
Republican Precinct Committeeman ( Lawrenceburg 8)
Former Director of Board of Juvenile Detention Center
Member of Dearborn County Credit Union
Former advisor to Dearborn County Comprehensive Plan
Past member of HVL POA Board of Directors
Board of Directors of Tri-Township Water Corp.
While in offices of auditor and commissioner I saw that HVL received 2 police cruisers for $1.00 each. Linda Estes and I worked together to make this happen.
Also while in office as Commissioner I saw that the back entrance to HVL off Georgetown Road was blacktopped and line striped. I also took care of some of the drainage problems. It had been years since anyone had addressed that issue.
I feel I have good people skills and that I want to give my talents and energy to the POA of HVL.
I also feel any major issue, i.e. incorporation, should be given back to the people to vote on it. Whereas each of us has a vested interest in HVL you should have the opportunity to express it by your vote.
My goal is to continue giving service to the residents of HVL in an honest and straight forward manner, so that they may maintain the quality of life they want and deserve.
If you have questions or want to discuss issues, my number is 812 537-4343.
