Indiana Voters Choose Mayoral Nominees in New Albany, Jeffersonville

Indiana voters went to the polls Tuesday to select Democratic and Republican nominees in dozens of mayoral and other municipal races.

In Jeffersonville, Republican incumbent Mayor Mike Moore and Democrat Dennis Julius won their parties’ nominations and will be on the ballot in the November general election.

New Albany Mayor Jeff Gahan defeated David White in the Democratic primary and will face Republican Kevin Zurschmeide in November.

Voters in Floyd County also defeated a referendum to raise $80 million for school construction and renovation projects.

New Albany-Floyd County Schools Deputy Superintendent Brad Snyder told the News & Tribune that officials are disappointed in the vote and it’s uncertain if they’ll try to put the matter on a future ballot.
