Rep. Price named ‘Legislator of the Year’ by Indiana Association of Cities and Towns
STATEHOUSE- State Representative John Price (R-Greenwood) was named Legislator of the Year by the Indiana Association of Cities and Towns (IACT). The award was presented during the 2014 IACT Towns Annual Conference and Exhibition this week
Founded in 1891, IACT is one of the oldest state municipal organizations in the country, with 470 cities and towns as members. IACT advocates for municipalities as the official voice of municipal government in Indiana, and promotes good government through education, training and leadership.
“I was very humbled to receive this award,” said Rep. Price. “I have always been impressed with IACT’s dedication to promoting public policy that benefits Hoosiers statewide.”
According to the IACT, Rep. Price was awarded with this distinction because of his clear understanding of local issues, many years in county government and his positive impact on the Local Government Committee in the Indiana General Assembly.
“Representative Price has been a true friend to local government. He knows that city and town officials need flexibility to lead and he has tried to give us more tools to do our job with greater efficiency. Whether proposing new revenue options to better zoning laws in connection with annexations, Representative Price has really gone above and beyond. He’s been a sincere advocate for local leaders,” said Mayor Huck Lewis, IACT Board member and Legislative Committee Chair.
The IACT’s Board of Directors voted on the award during a board meeting in July. This is the fourth year the IACT has presented a Legislator of the Year Award. -30-
