Note to the press: Please include the following statements from State Reps. Tony Cook (R-Cicero), Chuck Goodrich (R-Noblesville), Donna Schaibley (R-Carmel) and Jerry Torr (R-Carmel) in your coverage of House Republicans selecting State Rep. Todd Huston (R-Fishers) as House speaker-elect:

“Todd was my mentor and friend when I first came to the Statehouse in 2014. He knows how to lead with integrity and grace. I know these qualities will continue to serve him well as he prepares to take on this new role as the leader of our chamber,” Cook said.

“He has proven that he is a leader and a mentor, and he is uniquely qualified to take on this tremendous responsibility following Speaker Bosma’s retirement. I have no doubt he will continue to keep Indiana on the path to success,” Goodrich said.

“He has proven himself over the past few years, especially as co-chair of the House Ways and Means Committee, which makes him the ideal candidate to carry on the legacy Speaker Bosma will leave behind,” Schaibley said. 

“It’s been an honor to serve alongside Todd since he took office. I have no doubt he will continue to be an effective leader in our chamber and uphold our history of civility and respectful decorum while we address issues that matter most to Hoosiers,” Torr said.
