Moers, Robinson Move On to General Election
Prosecuting Attorney, Sheriff and House District Candidates Established
Following Tuesday night's primary election, the roster has been set for who will be running for key offices this November in Vanderburgh County.
Two of the biggest races established the Democratic candidate for sheriff and Republican candidate for prosecuting attorney.
Diana Moers upset 12-year incumbent Nicholas Hermann for prosecuting attorney. If she beats democrat Jon Schaefer in November, she’ll be the first woman to hold the office.
“That's something that I want, every woman who couldn't run before and every little girl to see that, it doesn't matter," she said. "You may have to work a little harder, and do things a little bit more perfect. But that has brought me to where I am and hard work is what made me win this campaign.”
Noah Robinson beat Jason Ashworth to be the Democratic candidate for County Sheriff and will run against Republican Jeff Hales in November.
“It has been my goal from the start, that I want to move the sheriff's office to a neighborhood centric model of policing, or our sheriff deputies get to know the residents they police," he said. "They form relationships, they go to the neighborhood association meetings. Everyone in those neighborhoods have that deputy's phone number.”
For the 78th house district,
Republican Tim O’Brien will move on to run against Jason Salstrom in November.
