Rep. Carbaugh supports charity, sworn in on Organized Day

STATEHOUSE – On Organization Day, State Representative Martin Carbaugh (R-Fort Wayne) was sworn into office at the Statehouse, marking the first official meeting of the 119th General Assembly. Rep. Carbaugh was re-elected to represent House District 81, which includes portions of Allen County.

“It is a privilege to represent House District 81,” said Rep. Carbaugh. “I have always valued the feedback of my constituents, and I will continue to use those opinions to drive my decision-making at the Statehouse.”

As a part of Organization Day, Rep. Carbaugh joined House Speaker Brian C. Bosma (R-Indianapolis), legislators, staff and other office holders in donating linens, gift cards, and various supplies to the Indiana Coalition Against Domestic Violence (ICADV).

“Domestic violence affects so many people throughout our state,” said Laura Berry, Executive Director of ICADV. “We are happy to work with the House legislators on this issue and are proud to be the recipient of the Speaker’s charity initiative in 2015 which will support local domestic violence programs.”

ICADV is a statewide coalition that provides technical assistance, resources, information and training to domestic violence awareness programs, support agencies and concerned individuals. ICADV focuses on prevention of domestic abuse, legislative advocacy, public awareness, advocate training and legal assistance.

“I am glad we had the opportunity to give back and support this incredible organization,” said Rep. Carbaugh. “This was a great way to help victims of domestic violence and demonstrate that we stand behind them, which will continue throughout the legislative session and into the future.”
