Scott Mellinger

Party: Democrat

Age: 62

Family: Lauren, 34; Malerie, 29, and Kevin, 25; grandchildren, Lucas, 7, and Gwendolyn, 3.

Occupation: Law enforcement for Madison County for 24 years and the state level for 4 years

Political Experience: Currently serving my third term as sheriff and I served 3 years in the Indiana State Legislature

Goals: Maintain the Sheriff's Department at a high professional level. Continue to recruit the best and brightest. Madison County needs a new jail, period. Planning these facilities takes 2-3 years and our infrastructure is failing frequently. Continue to be heavily involved with local stakeholders to decrease drug abuse and criminal activity.
