West Lafayette City Councilman At-Large

Gerald W. Thomas

Jennifer Teising

I have lived in West Lafayette for over 40 years. Purdue graduate from the Krannert School of Management, where I met my wife Susan and we have been married for 40 years. We have two sons, Christopher, a resident in training to become a transplant surgeon, and Benjamin, who is in graduate school at Purdue University.

My 3 terms as your West Lafayette City Councilman At-Large have been extremely productive. I will continue to focus on quality of life issues, our expansive trail system, our fantastic city parks, reliable city services, safe and welcoming neighborhoods and responsible economic business growth.

My current term has been gratifying and I am pleased with the accomplishments our city has produced over the past 12 years. From helping craft city budgets that use city services efficiently, to supporting ordinances for responsible management of the growth of our city to moving us toward greener policies and practices that help safeguard our environment – the successes are satisfying and evident everywhere you look. I made myself a promise 12 years ago that I would do what is best for the citizens of West Lafayette. I will make that same promise – to continue to make West Lafayette an exceptional place to live.”
