Crowder and his wife, Joy, have been married 43 years. Family members include a daughter, Jodi Dorais, and her husband, Eric Dorais, and a son, Ryan Crowder. There are also three grandchildren, Coulter Grant Mills, Luke Mills Grant and Taylor Crowder.
"I'm the President of Columbia City Common Council, my major responsible is stepping in when the Mayor becomes unavailable. I've been Council President for the past 12 years," Crowder said. "Today, I'm serving on several boards for the City of Columbia City and on combined boards between Whitley County Gov. / Columbia City."
Crowder notes many reasons he'd like to continue to serve on the council.
"The reason I'm running is to represent our citizens at City Council meetings and at Board of Works meeting. I'm a good listener, who wants to hear ideas and concerns," he said.
Crowder believes Columbia City is an excellent place for new residents to call home and for businesses to grow and prosper.
"Columbia City is always looking for investors to help build our continuous growth of city. We have more choices in housing, shopping and rental properties," Crowder added. "Columbia City is one of the fastest growing cities in Indiana. The growth areas are expanding in all directions of the City. This means we need to be ready and we are ready. We are improving our Utilities Infrastructure, Power, Water, Sewage, Storm Water. We are becoming a technology driven City."
Safety continues to be a priority for Crowder.
"I support and promote Columbia City as a safe place to live," he said. "Emergency Services have increased the coverage for Communications Dispatch, Police and Fire. In the past 60 days we went live with our new Dispatch Center."
Crowder counts himself among the team players in the community working to make it a great place -- a team effort that is necessary for success in an ever-changing environment.
"The team players include Columbia City's elected officials, Whitley County elected officials, the Whitley County Chamber of Commerce and the Whitley County Economic Development Corporation. They are promoting our City and County strengths and putting them together to draw new businesses."
