Getting to Know the Mayors: Sports Teams and Super Powers


Great Mayors seem to be a staple in Northwest Indiana. While their politics and decisions get discussed and highlighted each and every day, the lighter side of the mayoral job often gets overlooked. From embarrassing moments to the songs they’re listening and singing along to, we took a moment to ask a few Region mayors some lighthearted questions, hoping to get to know them a little better than before.

If you could have any superpower to aid you as a mayor, what would it be?

Mayor Ron Meer: Michigan City

To be invisible in a room to gain knowledge of what is really being said or going on.

Mayor David Uran: Crown Point

I wish I could have superpowers to control our weather. Mother Nature single handedly causes the most problems for our city resources. Rain causes flooding, snow causing poor driving conditions and accidents, frost and freezing temps destroy our public infrastructure. I would make Crown Point the San Diego of the Midwest (except during Christmas – 2 weeks of snow and then back to 72 and Sunny!)

Mayor Brian Snedecor: Hobart

To know the future, to better prepare for it.

Mayor Mark Krentz: La Porte

A superpower to aid me as mayor is tempting, as I think about the possibilities. If I could have the ability to speed up the process to reduce lag time that would be great, yet, the process is what is necessary to achieve the ultimate common good.

Joseph Stahura: Whiting

Power to cure sick kids – there is nothing worse than seeing a young child fighting a serious illness.

Rank these teams from your favorite to least favorite: Bulls, Bears, Blackhawks, Cubs, White Sox.

Mayor Ron Meer: Michigan City

Cubs, Bears, Bulls, White Sox, Blackhawks.

Mayor David Uran: Crown Point

Cubs, Bears, Blackhawks, Bulls, and then ………………

Mayor Brian Snedecor: Hobart

Cubs, Blackhawks, Bears, Bulls, White Sox

Mayor Mark Krentz: La Porte

White Sox, Cubs, Bears, Blackhawks, Bulls

Joseph Stahura: Whiting

Cubs, Blackhawks, Bulls and anyone who plays the Bears or White Sox. Go Packers!

Every mayor in Northwest Indiana has a unique personality and some interesting moments to share! Across the Region, these mayors are taking the time to better their communities and gave us a little insight into themselves outside of the political sphere!
