Aaron Mishler

Aaron Mishler won a Democratic Party caucus Wednesday to fill a vacant seat on the Elkhart City Council.

ELKHART — Aaron Mishler was selected and sworn in as Elkhart’s newest City Council member Wednesday evening.

Mishler defeated Elkhart Community Schools social worker Allison Smith and former City Councilman David Osborne at the Democratic caucus to replace now-former Councilman Gerry Roberts, who could no longer represent the 1st District after he moved to the 2nd District last month. Mishler is now part of a 5-4 Democratic majority on the City Council.
