Diana Moers, Republican nominee for Vanderburgh County Prosecutor, is looking ahead
Incumbent Nicholas Hermann unseated as GOP candidate after multi-term career
When current Vanderburgh County Prosecuting Attorney Nicholas Hermann arrived at the GOP election watch party Tuesday night, the first thing he did was congratulate Diana Moers.
Moers won the party nomination to run against Democrat Jon Schaefer on the November general election, effectively unseating Hermann, a 12-year incumbent.
In 2021 the county settled for $75,000 on Hermann’s behalf for sexual harassment and several other allegations.
Moers wants to move forward from this era of controversy.
“The first thing I want to work on is just restoring public trust in the office," she said. "I think with the many controversies that its had lately, we need to work on that.”
She said that if she's elected, she wants to collaborate with police officers and ensure deputy prosecutors receive the training they need to do the job.
As an attorney, Moers is currently Section Chief for the Government Litigation Section of the Indiana Attorney General.
If she wins, Moers might also be the first female prosecuting attorney for Vanderburgh County.
