MEET COREY NOLAND | A Lifelong Resident with a Commitment to Public Service
I have been a lifelong resident of South Bend, IN. I grew up on the west side near the South Bend Motor Speedway. I have been married for 24 years and have two grown children.
In addition to my experience on the St. Joseph County Council, I have spent decades of my professional career serving on various Labor/Management Committees building consensus and working with all the various views and personalities to execute sensible solutions for a myriad of issues and problems. Local government can not operate in a hyper-partisan manner–we must work collaboratively in order to provide the best possible outcomes for our constituents at the absolute best value. With your support, I am confident that I can continue to bring this type of cooperation to the St. Joseph County Council.
