My Campaign's Core Values
People Focused
Accessible and Transparent
Fiscally Responsible

Hi, I',m Sara!

Experienced Community Advocate.

Hi! I am Sara Draper and I am running for Carmel City Council at Large. My campaign is focused on one thing - the people of Carmel. ALL the people, regardless of faith, race, gender, income or political affiliation. 


I am British born, Hoosier by choice and a resident of Carmel for over 15 years. I’ve been a proud US citizen since 2013. I arrived here as an Oxford graduate, speaking 5 languages, with expertise in finance and market research. However, at the time, my visa did not allow me to seek employment. I decided the best way to give back to the community that had given me so much was through volunteer work.


My most significant role is as a Guardian ad Litem (or CASA) for Hamilton County,  I am a trained advocate who appears in Court proceedings to represent the best interest of children involved in abuse/neglect cases. In that role, as many others, investigation, debate and communication are crucial in achieving productive outcomes, which translates directly to the skills necessary for City Council.


That experience has informed my campaign mission, which is to Listen, Learn and Lead.

I pledge to use my unique skill set to make Carmel an even better place to live, work and play.
