As a lifelong resident of Northeast Indiana, I am honored to represent citizens across House District 50. As your voice in the Indiana House, I will continue to help encourage economic development and fiscal integrity, which in turn will create a positive business environment that can foster job creation opportunities. A strong community deserves strong representation within the Indiana House, and I will continue to advocate for folks in Huntington, Wells and Allen counties. I encourage citizens in our area to contact me with any questions or concerns.
