A longtime county official recently elected to the state legislature is taking another new job, this time with town government.
John Price was hired as the town manager of Bargersville, a full-time position in which he oversees day-to-day operations and the town’s 40 employees.
Price has worked or served as an elected official for county government for 36 years, most recently as an elected county commissioner. He resigned from his seat on the board last month after he was elected to serve as a state representative.
Price said Bargersville town officials asked him to take the $90,000-per-year position. His experience in local government was the top reason the town wanted him for the job, according to a news release from Bargersville.
