(WEHT) – Local attorney Rick Martin announced Tuesday that he will run for State Representative for Indiana House District 75, which encompasses most of Warrick, Southern Pike, and Southwestern Spencer Counties.
While Martin is no stranger to politics, having served as GOP Chair for the 8th Congressional District and Warrick County, this is the first time that he has run for elected office.
Martin’s announcement comes on the heels of current District 75 Representative Ron Bacon’s announcement on January 10th that he would not seek re-election.
“Ron has done an excellent job representing the citizens of District 75 for the past ten years. He has been thoughtful in the legislation that he has proposed and voted for and has always been responsive to the needs of his constituents. I am excited about the upcoming campaign and, if elected, look forward to serving the people of Warrick, Pike and Spencer Counties at the Statehouse next year,” said Martin.
