My Legislation

Dear Neighbor,

It is an honor and privilege to represent House District 49, which includes the eastern portion of Elkhart County in northern Indiana.

Hoosiers are problem solvers.  We find creative ways to fix things, and we can do the same with our state government. I want to hear from you. I encourage you to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have, or schedule a visit to the Statehouse.  

My website provides information on our district, issues I am working on and can assist you in finding helpful state resources. Thank you for the opportunity to serve you and your family.

Sincerely,

Christy Stutzman
State Representative

State Rep. Christy Stutzman was first elected to the Indiana House of Representatives in 2018.

Stutzman currently volunteers on the board of directors for Indiana Right to Life.  

As co-owner of several small businesses, including the Legacy Theatre Group, Stutzman Power Equipment, and the Schönbrook Farm & Inn, Stutzman wants to share her community’s economic success and resiliency with those at the Statehouse.    

Stutzman is dedicated to making sure her district preserves its time-tested Hoosier values of personal responsibility, hard work, family, faith and community and passes those values on to the next generation. She believes in smaller government, less regulation, more freedom, the sanctity of life and more local control.
