TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — Monica Casanova is running for Tippecanoe County Council at large.

On Sunday, she launched her campaign at Mama Ines Mexican Bakery in Lafayette. Dozens of friends, family and county leaders came to support her announcement.

Casanova has five main focuses: arts, diversity, economic development, safety, and infrastructure.

She was born in Mexico and lived in Los Angeles before coming to Lafayette at age 14. She said it’s vital to have county leaders that reflect all its citizens.

“There's nobody that looks like me on the council and there needs to be representation of the community that the council represents so that needs to change,” said Casanova.

One thing she wants people to take away is her passion for serving others.

“I believe in civic engagement and I know that for many people that's really really boring but it's not for me, I love public service, I love being engaged and we all need to take part,” said Casanova.

She previously served as a Tippecanoe County librarian. She currently works as the Assistant Director of the Immigration Clinic at Lafayette Urban Ministry.
