Chuck Brewer Files as Candidate for Mayor of Indianapolis
Posted February 05, 2015
Indianapolis – Chuck Brewer officially filed his paperwork to run for Mayor of Indianapolis and announced the campaign chair and treasurer. Brewer is a small business owner who currently owns and operates two downtown Indianapolis restaurants, Potbelly Sandwich Shop and Soupremacy.
“I love this city. Like a lot of people, I chose to call Indianapolis home,” said Brewer. “Our future success is dependent on our ability to retain and attract more people to choose Indianapolis to build a business, create jobs, and raise their families here.”
Brewer, a Lt. Colonel in U.S. Marine Corps Reserves with 23 years of service including two combat tours in Iraq, has never sought elected office.
“I want to build on the progress we have made under Mayor Ballard’s leadership,” said Brewer. “Indianapolis is a city on the move, but we have to keep striving to be better.”
“That means having a vibrant economy and attracting the best and brightest to our city. To do that, we have to be a city that people want to live in,” Brewer continued. “We need strong, safe neighborhoods with great schools for our kids. We must continue to improve the quality of life for our residents. And we have to honor the taxpayers by doing it in a fiscally responsible manner.”
David Lewis, a Vice-President at Eli Lilly and Company, will serve as Brewer’s Campaign Chairman. “With his background and entrepreneurial spirit, Chuck is uniquely qualified to drive our economic development efforts and attract talent to our city,” said Lewis. “I am excited about his candidacy and believe Chuck Brewer is the best candidate to lead our city forward.”
Brewer also named long-time Republican Party activist Kay Spear as his campaign treasurer. Spear is the Perry Township Republican Party Chair. The Marion County Republican Party endorsed Brewer at their slating convention last week.
“Chuck Brewer is exactly the kind of leader we need to build on the foundation laid by Mayor Greg Ballard,” said Marion County Republican County Chairman Kyle Walker. “He is the right candidate at the right time.”
