Welcome to my website and thank you for taking the time to visit. It is a privilege to serve as the state representative for House District 31, which includes all of Blackford County and portions of Delaware, Grant and Wells counties.
I am always open to the ideas of my constituents, and I encourage you to contact me with any question or concerns that you may have. Please feel free to contact me by phone, mail or e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you as we work together in our efforts to keep Indiana flourishing.
House District 31
Indiana House of Representatives: 2010-Present
House District 31: All of Blackford County and portions of Delaware, Grant and Wells counties
Occupation: State Farm Insurance Agent, since 2007
State Representative Kevin Mahan was born and raised in Blackford County, where he started working after high school at his uncle’s family-owned business, Rex A. Shadle and Associates Auctioneers and Realtors. There he received his Auctioneer and Real Estate Sales license and Real Estate Broker’s license.
Rep. Mahan was also serving his community long before being appointed to serve in the Indiana General Assembly as state representative of House District 31. He served as a patrolman for the Hartford City Police Department, and then was appointed Blackford County Chief Deputy. After serving eight years as Chief Deputy, he was elected as the Blackford County Sheriff, which he served for three years.
During his service, he was called upon by Gov. Mitch Daniels to build a new police and regulatory agency for the Indiana Gaming Commission when Senate Enrolled Act 626 was passed in 2005. He built the agency from the ground up—from writing job descriptions to designing Indiana’s first Gaming Agent Academy. He also instituted a D.A.R.E. program and TRIAD, a networking organization between law enforcement and senior citizens to improve the quality of life in the community.
Rep. Mahan is married to his high school sweetheart, Tonia, and they have three children: Andrew, Chase and Keaton.
House District 31 is comprised of all of Blackford County and portions of Delaware, Grant and Wells counties.
As your representative, it is my duty to make sure your voice is represented at the state level, and there are several ways I am able to do this. One of the more obvious is by voting for bills that benefit our community during the legislative session. However, since lawmakers only meet at the Statehouse for a few months out of the year, that is only a small portion of what I do. In fact, a majority of my work takes place during the summer months when we begin to research, fact-check and collaborate on potential legislation for next year by serving on interim study committees.
STATEHOUSE — State Representative Kevin Mahan (R-Hartford City) presented local Superintendent Steve Hall with the Sagamore of the Wabash award in recognition of his strong commitment to education and community service.
