Andy Bozak is the
first Republican candidate to file for Burns Harbor Town Council for the
upcoming November 3 local elections after filing paperwork on Tuesday.
Bozak, who is a
current member of both the Burns Harbor Planning Commission and Park Board,
is running on a platform of responsible growth in the Burns Harbor community
through careful spending and financially sound investments, ensuring Burns
Harbor remains a safe, prosperous town for future generations. He also
promises to be a reliable advocate for the parks, infrastructure, and
services provided by the Town of Burns Harbor.
Among the goals
Bozak would like to accomplish on the Burns Harbor Town Council are bringing
in a small grocery store and the creation of a downtown area. Additionally,
he is interested in finding a way to connect Burns Harbor; which is divided
by Ind. 149 and U.S. 20, making the town difficult for bike riders and
pedestrians to navigate.
In addition to
serving on the Planning Commission and Park Board, Bozak is also the
Treasurer of State Park Little League, the manager of his children’s two
Little League baseball teams, and a representative on the Shared Ethics
Committee for Lake, Porter, and LaPorte Counties.
Bozak is a
parishioner at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church in Chesterton. With his wife
Roseann, they have three children: Ayden (7), Ava (6), and Abriella (2). He
has been a resident of the Duneland community for 18 years.
chairman and treasurer will be local political activist Kevin Tracy.
