STATEHOUSE (March 7, 2018) — Members of the House of Representatives honored State Rep. Dave Ober (R-Albion) for his six years representing House District 82.

“I am so grateful for the opportunity to serve my hometown for these past six years,” Ober said. “During my time at the Statehouse I have sought to work on policies that improve the lives of the people of Indiana.”

During his time in the Indiana House of Representatives, Ober served as chair of the House Committee on Utilities, Energy and Telecommunications, and as a member of the House Committee on Agriculture and Rural Development; the House Committee on Employment, Labor and Pensions; the House Committee on Government and Regulatory Reform; the House Committee on Rules and Legislative Procedures; and the House Committee on Ways and Means.

“David has demonstrated great leadership and a command of technology and utility issues as chair of the House Committee on Utilities, Energy and Telecommunications,” said House Speaker Brian Bosma (R-Indianapolis). “We are grateful for his service and wish him the very best as he pursues his next adventure.”

Ober authored and helped shepherd several key pieces of legislation during his time in the General Assembly, including a law requiring  crime statistics to be reported to the Indiana State Police in order to better identify high crime areas.

As chair of the House Committee on Utilities, Energy and Telecommunications, Ober worked to expand high-speed internet service in rural areas, helped ensure the quality of water systems, along with a variety of utility issues. 

“I have enjoyed my time as a member of the Indiana General Assembly, and I am thankful for the opportunity to represent House District 82,” Ober said.
