Posey Co. has a new prosecutor

POSEY CO., IN (WFIE) - The results are in and Thomas Clowers has been elected as the new Posey County Prosecutor.

Thomas Clowers is the brother of former Prosecutor, Travis Clowers.

He was the sole one running for the position and won unanimously. The county has about two weeks to get Thomas sworn in.

Throughout the process, many have voiced their concerns about putting Thomas in this position.

The Republican Party showed Sunday they think otherwise.

“Him (Travis Clowers), local law enforcement and his staff, they’ve really accomplished so much over the eight years that he’s been in office. He is truly leaving the office in a better place than he found it. My goal is to do the same,” said Thomas Clowers.

This comes after Travis Clowers was made the new Posey County Superior Court Judge. He will take office in a few weeks.
