“Lafayette rail-served companies like Subaru, Alcoa, and Tate & Lyle have brought thousands of jobs to our community in the last year. Demand has required a significant expansion of rail capacity and these upgraded freight rail lines will continue to drive economic development as our population expands to meet hiring demands.”

Tony Roswarski began his commitment to Lafayette when he joined the Lafayette Police Department, serving over 20 years and retiring at the rank of Captain. In 1999, he was elected to the Lafayette City Council, and then in 2003 was elected to the Office of Mayor where he is currently serving his 4th term.

Roswarski serves as Chief Elected Official for the 12-county Workforce Development Board. In addition, he serves on the Advisory Committee for the Indiana University School of Medicine at Purdue University, as President of the Wabash River Enhancement Corporation, as Co-President on the Greater Lafayette Honor Flight Executive Committee, and as President for the Indiana Association of Cities and Towns Medical Trust.
