Wesley Stockdale is the director for District 6. Stockdale was appointed to the seat previously held by the late Jerry Peevler and will serve the remainder of the current District 6 term, which is up for election in 2022.
Stockdale owns and operates Stockdale Farms in central and southern Fountain County. He previously was a member and past chairman of the Fountain County Soil and Water Conservation District for 18 years, where he represented the district at the regional and state levels to help maintain and shape conservation practices and policies.
Born and raised in Fountain County, Stockdale has been married to his wife, Sara, for 30 years and has two children: daughter Jamie (deceased) and son Jake. Sara and Jake are collaborative partners with Stockdale on the family farm. He is a 1982 graduate of Fountain Central High School and a 1984 graduate of Blackhawk College with a degree in agriculture. He also attended Purdue University. Stockdale and family are members of Sterling Christian Church in Veedersburg and reside southwest of Hillsboro.
I hope to be a liaison between the board and cooperative members within my district, evolving services that are cost-effective to all and addressing concerns within my district that cooperative members bring forth.
