Weddell to fill vacant seat on Goshen City Council

Brett Weddell wins Goshen council seat, replacing Tom Stump.

GOSHEN — Brett Weddell will become the newest member of the Goshen City Council after winning the vacant seat at a Republican caucus Tuesday night.

Weddell defeated Doug Nisley and joins the council just over a year after a failed bid to win the Goshen District Five seat in the 2011 election.

The seat Weddell will occupy on the council became available when council President Tom Stump resigned following his own victory in the race for a seat on the Elkhart County Council.

Elkhart County GOP Chairman Dale Stickel was encouraged by Weddell’s victory.

“What we’re seeing is young (Republicans) running for office,” Stickel said. “I think that speaks well about the future.”

Weddell will begin his new role effective Jan. 1, when Stump’s term on city council will officially conclude.

He takes medication to control his dark moods, he's had extensive counseling to help him cope with conflict and he leans on his supportive family as he wrestles with scarring memories earned a decade ago far away.  He says he is OK to return to work and that he's got medical reports to prove it. So far, SunEdison won't let him back.  The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission estimates 400,000 veterans who served in Iraq and Afghanistan have some form of PTSD.  (AP Photo/Houston Chronicle, Johnny Hanson)
