The winner of that race will face Republican Nathan Williamson in the Nov. 8, 2022 general election. Williams is unopposed for sheriff in the Republican Party primary.

Purdie currently serves as the administrator for the Monroe County board of commissioners, a position she has held for nine years. Before that, she worked as a deputy court administrator, and a probation officer.

Purdie earned a bachelor’s degree from Indiana University in public affairs.

Purdie’s platform includes four elements: a focus on community-oriented policing; creation of a residents’ advisory board for deputies and corrections officers; collection of accurate data; and implementation recommendations for the jail, based on a recent criminal justice reform study.
