A love for his job, the challenge of it and wanting to continue are why John R. Keller is running for County Surveyor.

Keller, 47, has been a resident of Clay County all his life. He is a Republican. Keller is a registered surveyor of Indiana and Illinois. He has been the surveyor and hopes to continue.

"Well I enjoyed it the first go around and I hope to continue to do so," he said.

One thing he loves about the job is the challenge. Keller said he has been working with the drainage board and they have been changing some things. They have to survey drainage ditches that run along side of roads. He said they have to check the county markers. He gets to see the land change.

He said he gets to drive all over the county and he gets a panoramic view of the county. Keller enjoys the work.

He is a member of the American Legion and served in the National Guard.
