Steve Volan declared his candidacy for Monroe County Commissioner, District 3 on January 10.

“I’m running to represent all of Monroe County. That includes all of the city of Bloomington,” he said.

“The current board of commissioners has accomplished almost nothing in the past four years. 

He represented District Six (central Bloomington) for 20 years on the Bloomington City Council. Late in 2022, the city’s new Redistricting Commission, which was created by an ordinance he authored in 2020, zoned his house out of District Six. 

In his capacity as councilmember, he served on the board of the Monroe County Solid Waste Management District for 14 years. More recently he served on the Policy Committee of the Bloomington/Monroe County Metropolitan Planning Organization, including as chair in 2022 and vice-chair in 2023. 

Primary Day is Tuesday, May 7, 2024. Early voting begins Tuesday, April 9. The District 3 seat is currently held by Penny Githens.
