(LAPORTE COUNTY, IN) - A Michigan City woman is running for La Porte County Commissioner. Liz Bergeron is seeking the Republican Party nomination for the District 1 seat in the May primary.
Bergeron said residents deserve a dedicated commissioner who shows up and knows how to be proactive to get things done, which she doesn't believe is the case with incumbent commissioner Sheila Matias.
Top priorities for Bergeson include growing La Porte County's population and economy, providing accountability and transparency to county government, ensuring proper code and zoning, and being used appropriately and fairly.
Bergeron currently works as an Indiana Medicaid Waiver Case Manager. She cites a wealth of knowledge and experience in law enforcement, insurance, financial, information technology, and social services positions that she has held for being qualified to serve as commissioner.
Matias, a Democrat, is seeking her second term as commissioner.
