Kory Wood: EIGHT Election Victories

The dust has settled on November 7th, and the results have been tallied. Our team has been all in for our clients in their municipal elections. Overall, our team helped bring home EIGHT wins, and we couldn’t be more excited to share these results with you. In Indiana, we took home seven wins, including a highly contested and closely watched win for Sue Finkam as the next mayor of Carmel, as well as a historic victory in Marion that elected Ronald Morrell Jr. as mayor. Morrell will be the first African American mayor of Marion and the first African American Republican mayor in Indiana.

These wins wouldn’t have been possible without the tireless efforts of the Ascent Strategic team. We delivered 233,594 pieces of mail to voters across Indiana, so many text messages and live calls that our phones team said they “might genuinely die” trying to calculate it, and countless man-hours helping our clients to cross the finish line.

These municipal elections were indeed a team effort between our clients, their volunteers, and our team. We offer a huge congratulations to all who took part in this effort and to our victorious clients below:

Sue Finkam – Carmel, IN Mayor
Ronald Morrell Jr. – Marion, IN Mayor
Russ Touchberry –Summerville, SC Mayor
Adam Aasen – Carmel, IN City Council Southeast District
Tony Green – Carmel, IN City Council South Central District
Ryan Locke – Carmel, IN City Council Northwest District
Jeff Worrell – Carmel, IN City Council At-large
Dyer Republican Organization – Indiana

We look forward to continuing to serve our clients as we enter 2024 and beyond.

We craft strategies to help you win.

At Ascent Strategic, we devise winning strategies for candidates and political organizations. We'd love to see what we can help you achieve.
