More elected officials have endorsed Joe Hubbard for Greenwood mayor.

Indiana State Treasurer Daniel Elliot and Johnson County Prosecutor Lance Hamner have both endorsed Joe Hubbard in his bid to unseat incumbent Mayor Mark Myers in the Republican municipal primary, Hubbard’s campaign announced Monday.

Elliot, who was elected last year to serve as the state’s chief investment officer, said he knows Hubbard is the right person for the job.

“Joe Hubbard has committed to standing for the taxpayers of Greenwood, our public safety, and responsible development that works for every neighborhood,” Elliot said in a statement. “I humbly ask the voters of Greenwood to send Joe Hubbard to the mayor’s office.”

Hamner, the county’s chief law enforcement officer, said Hubbard has the best plan to keep Greenwood safe, he said in a statement.

“Crime has invaded Greenwood from Indianapolis and Joe is committed to making Greenwood safe,” Hamner said. “Joe will be a good partner to police and all law enforcement officers which will enhance Greenwood’s future.”

Hubbard has also received endorsements from the Johnson County Professional Firefighters Local 4252, State Rep. Michelle Davis, R-Whiteland, former State Rep. Woody Burton, as well as Greenwood City Council members Bradley Pendleton and Michael Williams. Pendleton and Williams announced their support for Hubbard in videos shared to his campaign Facebook page.

Myers has also been endorsed by State Sen. Jack Sandlin, R-Indianapolis, State Rep. Mike Speedy, R-Indianapolis, and U.S. Rep. Erin Houchin, R-Indiana.
