Elkhart’s Democrat party will have to choose someone new to represent the city’s first district as Councilman Gerry Roberts announced this week that he is resigning.
Roberts is moving out of the district and is not eligible to hold the seat any longer. Two candidates have been identified by the party already including Aaron Mishler and Dave Osborne. Osborne held that seat for eight years before Roberts.
The party hopes to have a caucus in place and a decision made by mid August.
