SYRACUSE — Syracuse Town Councilman Nathan Scherer has announced his candidacy for Kosciusko County Commissioner.
Scherer announced his intention Thursday to run for the position of Kosciusko County Northern Commissioner, which is currently held by longtime commissioner Brad Jackson.
In his announcement, Scherer said he aims to tackle the challenges facing the county and ensure a prosperous future for its residents.
Scherer has spent the majority of his life in Kosciusko County. He and his wife, Lauren, have four children.
Scherer acquired Patrick Industries at the age of 23 and managed it with proficiency for nearly two decades, the news announcement said.
He owned a business in Noble County from 2004 to 2020 until Patrick Industries acquired it. Doing so freed up his time and flexibility to serve, according to a story by The Goshen News.

He’s served on the Noble County Economic Development Commission for seven years.
“As a family man, a community advocate, and a business leader, I am motivated to ensure that Kosciusko County remains a place of opportunity, growth, and strong family values,” Scherer said.
Kosciusko County remains a place of opportunity, growth, and strong family values,” Scherer said.
