On Friday, Marshall County Commissioner Mike Burroughs publicly sent his congratulations to all the newly elected municipal officials throughout the County. Burroughs then announced his plans to run for a second term as County Commissioner saying, “Now that the local elections are officially over, I would like to announce that I will be seeking a second term for the seat of Marshall County Commissioner, District #2. I humbly ask for your support.”
Mike Burroughs graduated from Argos High School, Ball State University, and the Graduate School of Banking. His work experiences include education, real estate, and the local banking industry for 24 years before moving to manufacturing for 10 years until his retirement.
Mike is married to Sandy and they have been active members of Trinity United Methodist Church since 1980. They have two grown children, their spouses, and two beautiful granddaughters.
In the press release Burroughs said, “When I ran for my first term, I promised to be fair, honest, and open, which I believe I have done. I have provided a summary of all the Commissioner meetings on social media. I have answered calls and returned calls from residents expressing their concerns, even if they didn’t like my answer.”
Mike Burroughs is currently serving on the MACOG Policy Board, the U.S. 30 Highway Coalition, and the Unsafe Building Committee. He says, “I have been a fiscal conservative mindful of taxpayer dollars and how those dollars are spent. I’ve supported every request from the Marshall County Highway Department for funding of the road program which has brought us up to an 85% good rating of our roads and bridges.”
In his announcement, Mike Burroughs said, “I pride myself on being a team player for no one commissioner can do anything by themselves. It takes at least two and we have worked as a team to improve the quality of life in Marshall County. I appreciate the opportunity to serve Marshall County and will continue to be fair, honest, and open. By working together, we can and will make Marshall County better.”
District 2 Commissioner Mike Burroughs closed his announcement saying, “I wish you and yours a very safe and healthy holiday season as we all look forward to 2024.”
