Hi, I'm Dr. Anita Joshi, a pediatrician, small business owner, and community leader, and I'm running for the West District seat on the Carmel City Council.


I'm running to represent our community's diverse voices and to put Carmel residents' needs first. I care deeply about this community. We've lived here for almost two decades, and I want to ensure it remains one of the most welcoming and desirable places to live.


I've been active in the community for a long time and have had the privilege of serving in leadership roles on boards like the Center for Interfaith Cooperation, Women's Fund of Central Indiana, and the Brebeuf Jesuit Board of Trustees. I'm also a proud member of the Hindu Temple of Central Indiana.


As a pediatrician and business owner, I know how important it is to strike a balance between good business sense and compassion. My ability to work with a diverse group of constituents and build consensus allows me to make practical and compassionate decisions that drive vibrant growth. 


I'm confident that my experience, passion, and dedication will allow me to make data-driven decisions, promote fiscal responsibility, and ensure that every resident of Carmel feels heard and represented.


When I'm not working, I love to spend quality time with my husband and experience all that nature has to offer. We're outdoor enthusiasts and love hiking, gardening, and scuba diving, and we never pass up an opportunity to travel and explore new places. We also love to spend time with our dog, Kulfi, who brings so much joy to our lives. Our two children are both at university, following their dreams and making us incredibly proud. We feel extremely grateful to call Carmel our forever home.


Thank you for joining me on this journey to be your voice on Carmel City Council!

Keeping Carmel safe and vibrant is a top priority for me. I'll partner with our local first responders and use technology to enhance safety. I also aim to create opportunities for neighbors to connect and get to know each other because a connected community is a safer community. My goal is that our children can grow and play without worry.


As a pediatrician, I know how important it is to promote healthy living. I'm an avid lover of nature and the great outdoors – and I believe a clean and green environment is essential for good health. That's why I'm passionate about supporting initiatives that preserve the environment and promote healthy living. I also want to ensure that everyone in our community has access to high-quality healthcare and facilities like the Monon Center so they can live a healthy and fulfilling life.


A thriving arts and culture scene is essential for a happy community. I am dedicated to fostering a vibrant and thriving community where everyone can experience the joys of community life. Whether you sing, dance, or express yourself in another way, you deserve to be seen, heard, and valued. I'm committed to ensuring everyone has a voice and feels a sense of belonging in Carmel.
