My name is Ilana Stonebraker and I’m running for the District 1 Tippecanoe County Council position. District 1 includes most of the city of Lafayette, north of Beck Lane (see map).
I am running for County Council District 1 because I have a passion for this county and its community. One of the focuses of my campaign is being citizen-centric, and I mean it.
At doors and in meetings, I focus my time listening to people’s concerns about local government and learning about what matters to my neighbors in the district. Please consider supporting our campaign with your donation or volunteering.
Residents of District 1 can also volunteer to have a yard sign in their lawn this fall. If you are interested in supporting our campaign in this way, please sign up using our yard sign form. Thank you for giving me the chance to earn your vote this November 6!

As a business librarian, she has guided colleagues and students in making fact-based decisions. She is an expert in using databases and data to support effective decision making.
