Bio: Randy Truitt is a proud fourth generation resident of West Lafayette. He is a 1986 graduate of West Lafayette High School and a 1990 graduate of Purdue University with a bachelor’s degree from the School of Technology. Randy obtained his M.B.A. from Indiana Wesleyan University in 2002, receiving the Distinguished Professional Award.

Randy’s professional background includes leadership roles in both the bio tech industry and the real estate industry. He currently is a Partner in Main Street Management, LLC and serves as President.

As a second term Councilor-At-Large on the West Lafayette City Council, Randy served on many committees including the Street, Sanitation & Wastewater Treatment Utility Committee, the Economic Development Committee, and the Personnel Committee. Randy also chaired the Budget & Finance Committee during his time on the Council.

Randy’s focus on the council has been on fiscal accountability and stewardship. During his tenure, he helped to fulfill the city’s obligation to fully fund pensions for city employees. He also hosted a TIF workshop for the community not only to stress the importance of TIF districts but also to review the impact TIF districts have on the city. From this effort, the city of West Lafayette released millions of dollars for TIF districts back into the city’s assessed valuation which allowed a stabilization of the city’s tax rate.

Being active in the community is of central importance to Randy. He has served in various capacities with Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Wabash Valley, United Way of Greater Lafayette, the Hills and Dales Neighborhood Association, and Covenant Presbyterian Church. In addition, Randy has helped raise funds for the YMCA, the Muscular Dystrophy Association, and the Museum of Art. He led the effort to raise the needed funds for the renovation of the West Lafayette Little League complex which provides a great environment for the recreational activities of the area’s youth. Randy is a board member of the West Lafayette Little League, Red Storm Athletics, National Football Foundation (Joe Tiller Chapter) and the West Lafayette High School Alumni Association. He is also an active member of the Purdue Alumni Association, a member of the Purdue President’s Council and the John Purdue Club.

Randy is married to Krista Duncan Truitt, who is also a 3rd generation Purdue graduate, and they are blessed with three children - Peyton, Gabrielle, and Harrison. In his free time, Randy enjoys coaching youth sports, following Purdue athletics, biking, golfing, playing basketball and traveling.

 

House District 26 is made up of Wabash and Union townships in Tippecanoe County. It includes the city of West Lafayette and Purdue University.
