State Representative Randy Frye was elected to serve Indiana’s House District 67 in November 2010. HD 67 includes Ohio and Switzerland counties as well as portions of Ripley, Decatur, Jennings, Jefferson and Dearborn counties in southeastern Indiana.
He attended Cincinnati Christian College, graduating with an Associate of Arts Degree. In December of 2010, Rep. Frye retired from the Indianapolis Fire Department after 26 years of service as a professional firefighter.
That same year, Rep. Frye was elected to the Indiana House of Representatives where he serves as Chairman of the Veterans Affairs and Public Safety Committee. He also serves on the Roads and Transportation Committee and the Utilities, Energy and Telecommunications Committee.
Representative Frye envisions government as a tool to help the citizens of Indiana. His vision is to see that government provides the leadership to help citizens be successful while keeping government small and taxes to a minimum.
House District 67 includes all of Ripley, Ohio and Switzerland counties and sections of Decatur, Jennings, Jefferson and Dearborn counties in south eastern Indiana.
Each year, the Indiana House of Representatives offers opportunities to participate in the legislative process at the Statehouse while gaining hands-on experience through paid internships.

To memorialize Sept. 11, 2001, Alan Jackson penned a song titled, “Where Were You When the World Stopped Turning?” Answers to this question vary, but for myself, I vividly remember I was on duty at the fire station when those four planes crashed into the Twin Towers, Pentagon and that lonely field in Pennsylvania, claiming thousands of American lives. Even though 15 years have passed, we are still feeling the effects of that fateful day.
Football season is upon us, which not only means my Sundays are booked until next February, but that I also get to enjoy watching my grandsons grow into great sportsmen. From being a college athlete myself and having a son and daughter-in-law play sports in college, I know that safety always comes first. Winning is great, but safety needs to be the top priority on and off the field.

Police officers, firefighters and emergency medical services play a vital role in our community. Our first responders are always on-call and ready to act when there is a threat to the health and well-being of Hoosiers.

In the midst of fair season, I wanted to take time to talk about agriculture and how farming has been a way of life since the founding of our state 200 years ago. In fact, our economy thrives off of Indiana’s agriculture industry, bringing in more than $44 billion and employing 190,000 Hoosiers. Indiana is part of the Corn Belt and is one of the leading states for soybean, pork and egg production in the U.S. As a legislator, I know agriculture plays a vital role in our livelihood and I will continue to promote legislation benefiting our farming industry.
Indiana is celebrating 200 years of statehood. On Dec. 11, 1816, President James Madison signed a congressional resolution admitting Indiana into the Union as the 19th state. The origin of our state’s name dates back to when settlers first made this territory their home, as it was known as the “The Land of the Indians.”
