NORTH WEBSTER — Two long-time residents of North Webster, Dan Thystrup and Eldonna Warren, have filed their declaration of candidacy for the vacancy left on the North Webster Town Council by the death of Jon Sroufe. Interested candidates have until 6 p.m. today to file their candidacy with Mike Ragan, chairman of the Kosciusko County Republican Committee.
A caucus of precinct committeemen for the town of North Webster will be held at 6 p.m. Friday, Oct. 12, in the town council meeting room at the North Webster Community Center.
“I want to give back to the community,” stated Thystrup who has resided in North Webster for 30 years. “I’ve been asked by several people (to run), but the real reason is because I love our community and I want to do good for the community. I hope I can do good for all of us.”
Thystrup and his wife, Pia, have two sons, Nicholas and Jacob. He is the owner of Adventure Glass and Pia is the owner of Absolutely Apparel and Gifts.
Warren, who has resided in or near North Webster all of her life, has lived in the town for 41 years. “It’s such a nice little town. I want it to continue to be nice for people to want to live here and raise their families. I can help. I have no big agenda,” she stated.
Warren and her husband, Randy, have two sons, Adam and Brian and two grandsons. She retired in 2016 after 22 years as administrative assistant at Wawasee Middle School.
