Vote For Amy Back Vanderburgh County Council At-Large
Amy Back is a lifelong Hoosier. After graduating from Indiana University with a degree in Political Science, she worked for the Association of Indiana Counties, then the following three years for the Indiana House of Representatives, where she was a legislative assistant, working on constituent services, writing policy statements on legislation during sessions, and working directly with State department liaisons on Indiana Code. Since becoming a resident of Vanderburgh county in 2006, Amy has been involved with ANEW (A Network of Evansville Women), the Legal Aid Society Board, YPN (Young Professionals Alliance), YMCA, St. Joseph School Board and Parish council, and Youth First. She also worked at the University of Evansville and was director of membership at Southwest Indiana Chamber of Commerce, working with small business owners on a daily basis.
Amy believes it’s time for a fresh and forward-thinking presence on Vanderburgh County Council. She hopes to reframe the conversation around the County’s finances and demonstrate the worth of investment in our children’s future. Working with the Indiana Legislature, small businesses, and non-profit boards has given her the experience to represent the citizens of Vanderburgh County on the Council.
As a mother of four, Amy has a vested interest in the future of our community. She strongly believes that local government investment in mental healthcare and substance abuse prevention will bring a great rate of return and save taxpayer dollars. And more importantly, it’s just the right thing to do. Amy decided to run for County Council because she believes we need better access and greater investment in mental healthcare, and we need to improve economic advancement and government efficiency in the county.
Amy and her husband, Jim, live in the St. Joe area with their children, Maggie, Joseph, Caroline, & Samuel.
