STATEHOUSE (Aug. 14, 2019) – Ann Vermilion of Marion took the oath of office today to serve as state representative for House District 31.

 Indiana Supreme Court Chief Justice Loretta H. Rush administered the oath during a formal swearing-in ceremony in the House Chamber at the Statehouse.

“I am dedicated to improving the lives of those in House District 31 and making Indiana a better place,” Vermilion said. “I hope to use my experience working in the health care industry to best serve our community and Hoosiers around the state.”

Previously an administrative director of Marion General Hospital, Vermilion now runs a health care consulting business, relying on nearly 20 years of industry experience. She continues to lead efforts to decrease the number of opioid prescriptions written in her community, and serves as an advocate for opioid and substance abuse disorder.

Vermilion and her husband, Aaron, live in Marion and have three children. She is a graduate of Marion High School and Indiana University, where she earned her bachelor’s degree in business and kinesiology, and her master’s degree in business administration.

Vermilion will serve out the remaining term of former State Rep. Kevin Mahan (R-Hartford City) who recently resigned his seat after nine years.
