The longest serving City Council member in Noblesville history says he’s stepping up one more time. Terry Busby, who served the city as councilor for the first district and at-large from 1980 to 2005, will run for the open seat in District 1 in the May 7 primary election.
“Tax rates are too high, especially for senior citizens,” Busby says. “Recent changes in how we charge for sewers and trash have an unfair impact on people with fixed incomes. Where’s all the money going?”
Busby is a retired swimming coach and teacher with deep roots in the Noblesville community. He taught physical education and health at Noblesville High School for 35 years, served as the head swimming coach, and coached track and cross country. He was the Hamilton County Parks Superintendent for 18 years and designed the swimming pools at Forrest Park and Noblesville High School.
Busby also served on the Board of Works and Plan Commission. Most recently he served four years on the Noblesville Township board.
He holds a BS from Indiana University and a Masters of Education from Ball State University.
“I’ve been around this town a long time,” says Busby. “I know the ins and outs of city government. I want to put my experience to work for the people.”
