Becky Beckman Announces Candidacy For Dubois County Council

BeckyBecky Beckman of Jasper has announced that she is seeking the District 2 seat on the Dubois County Council in 2014.

The 60-year old Beckman is the daughter of the late O. Leo and Roselyn Beckman.   The District 2 seat is currently held by Shane Lindauer (R) who is not seeking reelection.  He is currently in the process of moving out of 2nd District.

Last October, Becky was named the Jasper Chamber’s 2013 President’s Community Excellence Award (pictured).  This award is given to members of the Jasper community who exemplify service to others throughout their lives.

The following is the text of her news release sent out Monday morning…

“I want to serve Dubois County as a Council member who will work together for the best interests of all people while maintaining balanced, steady growth for our county.  Dubois County’s greatest asset is the human asset.  And the best interests of all can be achieved when government, business, education, healthcare, public health, social services, spiritual and philanthropic components work together and act on what is important to the citizens of Dubois County.

I have budget and for-profit business experience through my work as a Dental Assistant in Evansville and as a Property Manager of multi-million dollar apartment communities in Jasper, Noblesville, Indianapolis, and Bradenton, FL for 12 years before moving back to Jasper.  I then worked for General Beverage, Inc. as a bookkeeper and Manager of the Snack Food Division before returning to property management as the Manager of four apartment communities in Jasper and Huntingburg.

I have financial experience in the not-for-profit social service area while serving as the Director of the TRI-CAP Retired and Senior Volunteer Program for the past 12 years.  I have also gained knowledge and experience of working with government budgets while serving as a current and former City of Jasper board member over two different departments and when I was the Assistant Director of the Older American Center.

I graduated from Jasper High School in 1971 and ISUE in 1975.

I contribute to the positive growth of Dubois County through my collaborative work with the DC Substance Abuse Council, DC Public Health Partnership on Aging Health Concerns, as an advocate for the best interests of abused and neglected children as a CASA volunteer, as a member of the Prayer and Presence Team of Memorial Hospital, and as an active member of St. Joseph Parish.

I always knew that I would move back to Dubois County.  This is my home and I want to do my part in continuing to make Dubois County the best place to live, worship, work, and raise a family.”
