When it comes to leadership in Whitley County, Paula Reimers, 43, is the youngest County Council member to serve the area.
Sitting in the At-Large seat, Reimers is the only woman to be in the elected position. â€śIâ€™ve always been fascinated by government,â€ť said Reimers. â€śI like working for the people of Whitley County. I consider it an honor to do what I do.â€ť
Reimersâ€™ role as a Whitley County Councilwoman is just one of her many responsibilities.
She is a wife to Scott; a mother to two kids Cohen, 15, and Samantha, 21; and a grandmother to Bailee, 1, in addition to her role as a councilwoman.
â€śIt all keeps me busy,â€ť said Reimers. â€śHowever, I love where I am at in life. Itâ€™s a mix of everything, but I think my perspective as a Councilwoman is stronger because I see things as a wife, a mom, a grandmother and a resident of Whitley County.â€ť
