It is an honor and a privilege to serve House District 79. It is a responsibility that I take very seriously. Northeast Indiana is a wonderful place to live, work and raise a family. By working hard for the values that we share, I am convinced that we can make Indiana an even better place to live. We can strengthen Indiana by creating both a taxpayer-friendly and pro-business environment to grow our economy, in addition to supporting future generations of Hoosiers with an excellent education system. Indiana has championed its fiscally conservative policies as it continues to recover and grow from the recession. I will continue to support legislation that creates Hoosier jobs and limits the size and scope of government.
