Mayor Jeremy P. Stutsman took office in January 2016. Prior to this, Stutsman served on the City Council and Redevelopment Commission for eight years. He is a seventh-generation Goshen resident who graduated from Goshen Community Schools and Butler University. Stutsman has been very active in numerous local boards and not-for-profit organizations over the past twenty years. He is the 30th Mayor of the City of Goshen. He is also the youngest Mayor to serve the residents of this city.
The mayor's term of office is four years, with no restrictions on the number of terms that may be served. Mayors must reside within the city and do so for at least one year before the election.
The mayor is the chief executive officer of the City and is responsible for all operations within each City department. Indiana is considered a "strong mayor" state, where the mayor is directly responsible for the business affairs of the city. The mayor appoints each department head and many board and commission members, and presides over the Common Council and the Board of Public Works and Safety and Stormwater Board meetings. The mayor ultimately is responsible for the enforcement of City ordinances, compliance with state statutes, signing all bonds, deeds, city contracts as well as approving or vetoing ordinances and resolutions.
From Mayor Stutsman:
