John Keller (R), Brazil, is running for re-election as surveyor of Clay County.
Keller has been a land surveyor for 30 years. If elected, this will be Keller's third term as Clay County surveyor.
He felt his experience qualifies him for the job. He is also a licensed surveyor in both Indiana and Illinois.
As surveyor, Keller said he thought it was important to continue to have records available. The surveyor's office will be cut down to part-time this year; however, Keller said he wanted to keep the office functional with someone available to answer phone calls and give access to the records.
Keller, who has lived in Clay County most of his life, said his goals, if re-elected, are to establish section corners, which must be done by licensed surveyors, and to bring records up to date.
Keller is a member of American Legion Post 328. He has been married for three years and has two stepdaughters.
The 2012 election is Tuesday, Nov. 6.
