Mayor's Office

Mayor Jeremy Stutsman

Jeremy Stutsman has served the community of Goshen for over two decades. Stutsman took office as Mayor of the City of Goshen in January 2016, becoming the 30th and youngest elected Mayor. His prior public service included serving on the City Council and Redevelopment Commission for eight years.

For just over 20 years, Stutsman has been active in numerous local boards and not-for-profit organizations. He is a seventh-generation Goshen resident, who graduated from Goshen Community Schools and Butler University. As Mayor of Goshen, Stutsman is responsible for a growing city, a strong community with thriving entrepreneurs, arts, and manufacturing sector. Mayor Stutsman puts strong emphasis on diversity and inclusion, environmental and youth initiatives, and responsible government.

 

About the Mayor's responsibilities

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:

Goshen supports an ever-growing industrial base and a vigorous retail area. The Goshen Community School System is excellent with emphasis placed on life-long learning. In addition there are two private schools serving k-12 students. Since 1903, Goshen has been the proud home of Goshen College, a small liberal arts institution with an outstanding international reputation.

Goshen has award-winning parks and recreational facilities, numerous service organizations and clubs, and a variety of churches supporting thirty-three different religious denominations. But more than that, Goshen is 30,000+ people who care about their city and their guests. 

One of Goshen’s greatest assets is its diverse population. The city is striving to be more inclusive every day.  City Government proudly welcomes all people to our City limits.Whether just passing through, considering a lengthy stay, or a permanent relocation, Goshen is an uncommonly great community in which you will have pleasant time experiencing the culture, communities and businesses that Goshen has to offer.
