Democrat Ruben Marté elected as Monroe County Sheriff, beating Republican Nathan Williamson


Democrat Ruben Marté has been elected as Monroe County Sheriff, beating Republican opponent Nathan Williamson. Of the 90.9% votes that have been counted, Marté garnered almost 60%. 

Marté is a captain at the Indiana State Police, which he has served on for 31 years. He is fluent in Spanish and was recently appointed as the first Equity and Inclusion Officer for the ISP. Marté’s campaign was focused on four areas: increasing public safety, reducing reoffence rates, increasing employee training regarding cultural and mental health awareness and bias and expanding outreach and engagement with the community.  

Marté raised more than $26,000 in campaign funds, the highest of all Monroe County candidates this cycle.  

Correction: A previous version of this article misidentified Ruben Marté's title.
