Tim Franke

For City Council

Hello, La Porte! My name is Tim Franke, and I am running for city council at large. I am passionate about helping La Porte thrive and achieve its full potential. As a city council member, I have and will continue to prioritize three essential areas: improving infrastructure, attracting businesses, and improving the quality of life.

First, I have always believed that we need to invest in our infrastructure in order to ensure that La Porte remains a safe and desirable place to live. I will continue to work to ensure that our roads and sidewalks are kept up to date and in good condition, that our public transportation systems are accessible and reliable, and that our parks and recreational areas are kept clean and well-maintained.

Second, I will continue my effort to attract businesses to our great city. I have been successful in doing this by cutting red tape and bureaucratic obstacles that can impede businesses from setting up shop in La Porte. I have a focus on working with local groups and organizations to create an attractive environment for businesses and entrepreneurs.

Finally, I will remain laser-focused on improving the quality of life for all La Porte residents. I want to ensure that all citizens have access to the resources they need to succeed, from quality education to affordable housing. It is important to me that we create a sense of community and pride in La Porte and continue our mission of making it a safe and welcoming place for everyone.

My commitment to La Porte is to ensure that it is a place with a thriving economy, excellent infrastructure, and a high quality of life for everyone. I look forward to continuing my work to make La Porte the best it can be.

Thank you for your time, and I ask for your support and vote!



The Leadership Our City Needs

As a team player, I will work together to push for the best resolution on all matters at hand. We need a new approach to things at City Hall and I can deliver results for the people of La Porte.

A Vision For The Future

As someone who has lived and worked in La Porte for many years, it is my goal to make it an even better place for residents and visitors. I believe our unique community has the potential to grow and flourish. I would like to see more businesses coming to the area, bringing in more jobs and money for the local economy.


Actionable Issues

A few key issues I feel strongly about include Economic Development, Public Safety, Revitalizing Our Downtown, and Parks & Recreation. If elected, I plan to work diligently at these issues, with the hope of improving La Porte for our residents.


Economic Development

Economic development is critical for La Porte. Investing in our economy can lead to the creation of higher wage jobs and an improved quality of life. I want to help La Porte reach its potential, and I believe this is a key part of that goal.

Public Safety

Keeping the people of La Porte safe is personal to me. As a father of three, I share the same worries many parents have about public safety. I believe we need to support our law enforcement so they better protect our community from criminals and rid our streets of drugs.

Revitalizing Our Downtown

Having a thriving downtown is incredibly important to building a strong community and improving a city economically. I plan to work at revitalizing and growing our downtown, creating a space for residents to come together and for tourists to see more of what makes La Porte unique.

Parks & Recreation

It’s been shown that parks and open spaces both improve our physical and mental health as well as strengthen communities. I plan to improve our existing parks as well as work to create new spaces for all to enjoy!

Contribute to a Cause

By contributing to my campaign fund, you are allowing me to get one step closer to making substantial change happen at City Hall. By becoming a city councilman, I will have the ability to serve the city which my family and I have called home for many years. I have a vision for La Porte, and I hope to be able to achieve it with your support.

Don’t Forget to Vote!

Elections are only won with the support of the community. I hope I can count on your vote on May 2nd!
