January, CPA

Merrillville Clerk-Treasurer


No to higher taxes, increased debt loads and corporate give aways that transfer the burden to homeowners.


Eric, aka the Einstein of Finance has 28 years of experience as public accountant, tax, financial and investment advisor. The financial wool can’t just be pulled over his eyes.


Eric is someone that you can trust. He has been faithful with a few things and millions. He has had access to, accounted for, and managed millions of OPM on a regular basis for nearly three decades with the highest degree of integrity.

My Priniciples

Principle One – I’m working for all of Merrillville- the residents, property and business owners and not the government or Town Council of Merrillville.

Principle Two – I promise to follow the Golden Rule, to treat everyone as I would like to be treated.

Principle Three –I promise to do Whatever It Takes within my powers to make Merrillville a magnet for those seeking the most out of life, a fertile business environment, a just government and tax efficient government. FYI, Whatever It Takes is the theme that I suggested to our coach going into my senior year as an incoming captain of the soon-to-be-crowned Sam Houston State Conference Champion football team.

Let’s Win Merrillville.
Vote me in on May 2, 2023!
