GOSHEN, Ind.—A candidate for the Mayor of Goshen has died, according to our reporting partners at the Elkhart Truth.
Republican candidate, Terry T. Snyder, passed away on Saturday. He was 77-years-old.
Snyder was previously a county assessor who ran for positions with the Goshen city council, mayor, clerk-treasurer and Elkhart County commissioner.
He started Snyder Electric in Goshen and in February of 2019, announced his candidacy to become the city’s mayor.
