Indiana—The mayors of Carmel and Greenwood appear to have been chosen by the primary election Tuesday since no Democrats have decided to run.
In Greenwood, long-time incumbent Mayor Charles Henderson was defeated by reserve Johnson County sheriff's deputy Mark Myers. Myers defeated Henderson, who has been mayor for the past 15 years, by more than 700 votes.
According to his Facebook page, Mark Myers was born and raised in Greenwood and is the son of late Mayor, Larry W. Myers. His family owned and operated Myers Ambulance which served Greenwood for 29 years. He is married and is the father of six children.
Carmel's often-controversial mayor also won another term in office. Mayor Jim Brainard won the Republican primary handily over two challengers. Nno Democrats have filed to run for mayor in Carmel so Brainard will likely serve another term. Brainard has served as Mayor of Carmel since 1996.
