Shelby County Commissioner Chris Ross announces re-election campaign

Chris Ross, Shelby County Commissioner, North District, has announced his re-election campaign. 


Ross will appear on the Republican Primary ballot on May 3, 2022.


“Serving the people of Shelby County as North District Commissioner has been one of the great honors of my life,” said Ross, a sixth-generation Shelby County resident.  “Over the past several years we have made great progress, and I want to do my part to see it continue.” 


“As a county, we’ve made significant investments in our roads, bridges, and infrastructure, while keeping taxes low.  We’ve focused on planning to support responsible growth that will benefit the people of Shelby County for generations to come.”


“I made it very clear when I first ran for County Commissioner, I thought our future was very promising. Without the hard decisions we’ve made, we would not have realized the progress and success we’ve had over the last eight years.”


Those planning efforts and investments in county infrastructure have resulted in hundreds of millions of dollars of private investment and the creation of hundreds of new jobs in Shelby County. 


“I’m proud of the work we’ve accomplished together.  I’m excited to continue to support the responsible growth and progress we’ve seenduring my term as commissioner,” said Ross.


Ross, a life-long resident of Shelby County, is a 1979 graduate of Morristown High School with an Agri-Business degree from Vincennes University. 


He is married to Kim Ross and they are the parents of daughter, Kate, and late son Cole.  


He serves on the board of directors for the Boys and Girls Club of Shelby County, the Hanover Township Cemetery Board, and was a founding member of the Morristown Boys and Girls Club.


Ross chairs the county’s Finance Board and is the commissioner representative for the Shelby County Plan Commission, Drainage Board, Recycle District, and Ambulance Board.
