Getting ready for the start of session

Christmas is such a blessing. I got to enjoy time with my family and reflected upon accomplishments throughout the past year. This year was even more special, as it was the first holiday I was not on-call. I officially retired from the healthcare business this year. This means I have more time to focus on my grandchildren and the joy they bring to our family.

It is a Bacon family tradition to have my daughters and their loved-ones over Christmas day to open presents, enjoy dinner together and spend time as a family. We also live in a tight knit community where the neighbors like to have a block party for each holiday.

Even with the hustle and bustle that the holiday season brings, I am also preparing for the upcoming legislative session which is Jan. 5. With every new session brings the delight of seeing my fellow legislators and working across the aisle to keep Indiana on the right track.

As you may know, this year is a “short session,” meaning we convene for only 10 weeks this year, rather than 16. Before this session begins, I want to hear your thoughts on the issues that are important to you and your community so I can best represent District 75.

Keeping an open line of communication with you is key to representing your voice at the Statehouse. Filling out the 2016 constituent survey is an excellent way to let me know your thoughts on upcoming legislation. Please visit today to fill out my survey online.

Growing up in Indiana and raising my children in the Hoosier state has strengthened my belief that Indiana is one of the greatest places to live. Thank you for helping make Indiana even greater and have a wonderful holiday.

Rep. Bacon (R-Chandler) represents portions of Warrick, Pike and Spencer counties.
