Dear Friends and citizens; my name is John J. Vendes and I am running for City council in the 4th district in Bicknell.
I am a life long resident of our city and I need your help; like many I have had chances to move out of our community, but I never did because it’s home.
I was raised here and I’m raising my own family here as well. I don’t profess to have all of the answers to the problems that Bicknell faces but I am willing and ready to meet all of Bicknell’s challenges head on; I am ready to serve and I am no stranger to making tough decisions.
I am currently a 21 year member of the Knox County Sheriff’s Department, serving as Jail Operations Commander, I have held that position for 15 years and I have also served as a part-time police officer in the City of Bicknell for 11 years.
I am the son of former Bicknell Police Chief John Vendes who served the City of Bicknell for 30 years.
My mother is Cindi Parkhill, former 2 term City Clerk Treasurer in Bicknell.
I am running my campaign with my 5 star program:
I will bring common sense and courtesy to the table, I will work hard because I share the same struggles as many others but I have never given up and also have never given up on on our community.
If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me at 812-890-8388 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
My address is 1006 North Main Street in Bicknell, Indiana
May God bless
John J. Vendes
