Report: Westfield city councilman eyes mayor bid

Republican Scott Willis, a member of the Westfield City Council, has reportedly put together a committee to look into a potential run for the mayoral job there.

“I’m deeply passionate about Westfield and its future,” Willis was quoted as saying in a press release from a publicity agency. “I’m committed to diversifying Westfield’s tax base, identifying new businesses and jobs, being fiscally responsible and strategically growing the city.”

Since launching an exploratory committee in early September, Willis has reportedly focused on meeting with various community groups, residents, business owners and elected officials to learn more about the needs and concerns of the Westfield community. He plans to continue these conversations.

The first-term council member is a 17-year Westfield resident, decorated U.S. Marine and businessman. 

Willis serves on the Westfield Public Library board, the Westfield YMCA steering committee, the President’s Council for Purdue University, is Chairman of the Westfield GOP Club and is involved in several Veteran organizations including the VFW, American Legion and Marine Corps League.

Willis and wife Stacey have three children — Sophia, a freshman at Xavier University, and Brenna and Graden, both Westfield Schools students.
