Community Leader Jane Burgess announces run for Zionsville Mayor

Zionsville, IN – Long-time resident and community leader, Jane Burgess, formally announced her plans to seek the Republican nomination for mayor of Zionsville in the May 2023 primary election.

For the past 20 years, Burgess has been serving Zionsville and the surrounding communities in a myriad of ways.  After beginning her career in education as an elementary school teacher and later as a consultant in mentoring partnerships for school corporations, she turned her attention to community engagement by serving as a board member, leader and volunteer for various organizations.

When asked why she was running for Zionsville mayor, Jane said, “I love Zionsville, the community feel and the people who make it so special.  I am running for Mayor to ensure that what makes Zionsville so unique endures while we work together to plan and build for tomorrow.”

Burgess further stated, “I believe I have the leadership skills, the local knowledge and deep relationships from my years here to bring back a collaborative working environment, a restored financial reputation and a highly competitive economic development climate that will expand and diversify our tax base.”  Burgess formed an exploratory committee in February of this year and the support for her run has already been very strong.

Burgess’s platform is centered on three primary issues:  Smart Economic Development and Jobs, Fiscal Responsibility & Leadership, and Public Safety. If elected Mayor, she is pledging to restore a position of fiscal responsibility and professionalism within the Mayor’s Office.  “I will work WITH the Town Council to ensure we preserve our charm and the thriving businesses on Main Street.  At the same time, we will be laser focused on smart economic development and jobs.  We must continue to expand and diversify our tax base and alert the business community that Zionsville is open for business. This will strengthen our Town, protect our property values and ensure a stable economic climate for years to come.”

Jane holds a bachelor’s degree in Education from Purdue University and a Master of Education from West Chester University in Pennsylvania. She was a 12-year member of the Zionsville School Board, and currently serves on the Hussey-Mayfield Library Foundation Board and the Zionsville Lions Club, among others.  She and her husband, Claude, have two grown children, Kristin and Thomas.

The primary election to determine Republican and Democratic nominees will be held on Tuesday, May 2, 2023.Add your news summary here.
