HOUSE DISTRICT 67 (Oct. 30, 2019) State Rep. Randy Frye (R-Greensburg) recently traveled House District 67 to hear from constituents and local tourism advocates to discuss issues important to them as the legislative session rapidly approaches.

Frye spoke with officials at Visit Madison, Inc. and Lanier Mansion in Madison to learn more about their efforts to drive more tourism to the area. Frye said they discussed how they’re working to boost crowds and the fan experience during the annual Madison Regatta along the Ohio River.

“As a representative with constituents across seven counties, I work hard to meet with and listen to as many people as possible,” Frye said. “Our rolling terrain, rich agricultural heritage and storied history makes our corner of Indiana a major attraction for visitors. It is always an educational experience to learn what our tourism leaders are doing to further promote our region and discuss new ways to make southeast Indiana a destination.”

Frye’s tour also included a stop at WTRE radio in Greensburg.

The 2020 legislative session kicks off on Tuesday, Nov. 19, 2019 with Organization Day, which provides state lawmakers time to gather together, meet new members and prepare for the upcoming legislative session.

Frye represents House District 67, which includes all of Ohio, Ripley and Switzerland counties, along with portions of Dearborn, Decatur, Jefferson and Jennings counties. Constituents can call 1-800-382-9841 or email h67@iga.in.gov to reach Frye’s Statehouse office.
