Local lawyer Alex Schmitt plans to make a run for the Vanderburgh County Commissioner seat in District 3.
Schmitt served on the Evansville-Vanderburgh School Corporation board of directors in 2015, Vanderburgh County Humane Society board of directors and the “Wish Upon a Star” board of directors.
Schmitt is the son of local lawyer Reed Schmitt.
He will likely take on republican candidate Cheryl Musgrave in the May primary, but other candidates could still throw their hat in the ring.
The District 3 seat is currently held by Vanderburgh County democrat Stephen Melcher.
