STATEHOUSE (Nov. 23, 2016) – Surrounded by family and fellow legislators in the Indiana House Chamber, member-elect Karen Engleman (R-Georgetown) took the oath of office yesterday, officially becoming the state representative of House District 70.

Engleman was sworn in by Indiana Supreme Court Chief Justice Loretta H. Rush. She was elected to fill the seat vacated by Rhonda Rhoads.

“I am energized and ready to get to work,” Engleman said. “I believe my past experience as a county auditor will be of value especially as we craft the state’s next two year budget. I’m also eager to support a long-term, fiscally responsible plan for improving our roads and bridges. I want to thank constituents of House District 70 for allowing me to serve our community and I am grateful for your support.”

A Corydon native, Engleman graduated from Corydon Central High School. She served three terms as Harrison County auditor. She and her husband, Gary Engleman, have five children and 12 grandchildren. She is a member of Oak Grove United Methodist church and the Corydon Rotary Club.
