Magistrate Mike Whitehouse has filed to run for a sixth term in the magisterial District 7, which encompasses much of the southern part of Shelby County.

Whitehouse, a Democrat, has served as magistrate for 21 years. He said he is excited about the chance to serve his community for another four years as magistrate.

He said he truly enjoys working for the community and with the members of Shelby County Fiscal Court, and, if given the opportunity, he would continue to strive to make Shelby County an even greater place to live and work.   

Whitehouse currently serves on the County Finance Committee, the Jail Committee, and the Animal Control Committee. He is a strong supporter of the Shelby County Fairgrounds, the Shelbyville Horse Show and the Shelby County Parks system.

With the support of Sen. Gary Tapp and the Shelby County Fiscal Court, Whitehouse said he was able to create the Shelby County Park and Ride service that serves the entire county.

During his current term, he cited several road improvement projects he had helped push to completion, along with the construction of two new fire stations in his district and the addition of fire hydrants.

Whitehouse is a graduate of Taylorsville High School and has a degree in Industrial Electrical Maintenance. He has been employed at Martinrea Heavy Stamping for 15 years.

He is the president of the Finchville Ruritan Club.

Whitehouse, the son of Marvin and Eloise Whitehouse, resides with his wife, Martha, at 2482 Taylorsville Road. They have four children and four grandchildren.
