STATEHOUSE (Oct. 7, 2016) – The Indiana Association of Cities and Towns recently named State Rep. Ed Soliday (R-Valparaiso) Legislator of the Year for his work on Indiana’s infrastructure funding.

Soliday was presented the award during the 2016 IACT Annual Conference and Exhibition in French Lick. The IACT board of directors voted to honor Soliday during their August meeting. This is the sixth year the organization has presented a Legislator of the Year award.

“It is an honor to receive this award, but it is only possible through the efforts of a team of people including Speaker Bosma, Chairman Brown, our staff and the many stakeholders who continue to work diligently to create a long term plan for a sustainable transportation infrastructure in Indiana,” Soliday said.

“I can’t say enough about Rep. Soliday’s leadership on the crisis of how we fund critical Hoosier infrastructure,” said Matt Greller, IACT executive director and CEO.  “He is a strong advocate for local government and a skilled coalition builder. Rep. Soliday entered the 2016 legislative session with a clear, data driven mission. Cities and towns across the state are poised to address significant infrastructure projects that will impact the quality of life in their communities, thanks in large part to the determination of Rep. Soliday.”

The organization’s mission is to advocate for municipalities as the official voice of municipal government in Indiana, and promote good government through education, training and leadership.
