Two Newly Elected Councilors Begin Their Terms
Ken Alexander has been elected president of the Hamilton County Council. He replaces Steve Schwartz in the role. Amy Massillamany will serve as Vice President. Election of officers is an annual practice at the first meeting of each year.
Alexander was elected to the Hamilton County Council in 2018. He represents District 4 which includes Adams, Washington, and part of Clay Townships.
Prior to joining the County Council, Alexander has worked on many skyline transforming projects in Indiana and the Washington, DC metro area. Shortly after the completion of the Sydney & Louis Eskenazi hospital in downtown Indianapolis, Alexander accepted the opportunity to serve his community as the City of Westfield’s Director of Public Works and then as the first Executive Director of the Grand Park Sports Campus. Working for the City of Westfield opened his eyes to the impact of local government. In 2019, Alexander started his own business, GKA Services, which provides construction and development oversight to projects in and around the Indianapolis area. It is that same critical eye for projects and financial controls that drives him in his role as a County Councilor.
Alexander and his wife Jenni have been married for 16 years. They have three children.
Mark Hall and Tim Griffin also joined the Hamilton County Council for their first meeting. Mark Hall was elected to represent District 3 in the November election which includes Noblesville, Jackson, Wayne, and White River Townships. He is the Founder and CEO of three workforce solutions companies – TalentLogistiX, Tech Trades, and PinPoint Resources. Griffin was elected to represent District 1 in the November election which includes nearly all of Carmel and the western edge of Fishers. Griffin works as a firefighter and public information officer for the Carmel Fire Department.
