McGlothin has served in his seat since being elected for the office in 2016. He defeated the then Democrat incumbent David Herier. Before that, he served on New Carlisle’s city council for nearly 20 years and was the city’s mayor for four years.
McGlothin said he was first prompted to run for county commissioner after being asked to do so by his party. He said he wants to continue to serve in that role in order to see several county-wide projects through.

His opponent Lindsey said he was urged to run for the position after previously serving on New Carlisle’s city council and later as the city’s vice-mayor. He left that office after being defeated in last November’s election.
Lindsey said his experience as an elected official prompted him to run for commissioner.
McGlothin could not be reached for comment.
