STATEHOUSE (Dec. 15, 2017) – House Speaker Brian C. Bosma (R-Indianapolis) recently selected House Republican Deputy Chief of Staff and Policy Director Tyler Campbell to serve as the new Chief of Staff for House Republicans.

Campbell has served on House staff since 2006 and is a licensed attorney. In 2011, he graduated from the Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law and he also holds a bachelor’s degree in political science and legal studies from Ball State University. 

Bosma said Chief of Staff Lesley Crane is stepping down to spend more time with her growing family, but will return to the House as Parliamentarian during the 2018 legislative session. In addition to three children, Crane and her husband recently adopted a son from Haiti. She served as chief of staff for five years after having served as chief counsel for six years with the House Republican Caucus.

“Our caucus has been extremely fortunate to have an experienced, professional and talented staff, and I’m grateful for Lesley’s years of service and for her commitment to serve as Parliamentarian this session,” Bosma said. “Tyler has played a key role in our policy discussions and has served as a great resource for our members, which makes him the right fit to fill this staff leadership position.”

Deputy Policy Director Danny Kelley was also selected as Policy Director for House Republicans. Kelley has served on staff since 2007 and holds a degree in political science and law from Spring Hill College.

Staff changes will be effective beginning Dec. 18.
