Bruce Ungethiem, current Vanderburgh County Commissioner President has decided to run for Indiana House district 64 in the upcoming 2018 election. Mr. Ungethiem, who is in his third year a commissioner in Vanderburgh County, will forgo a second term as Commissioner to run for the Indiana house seat currently held by Tom Washburne.
Mr. Ungethiem said it has been a pleasure to serve as Commissioner for Vanderburgh County residents and he plans to take that experience in serving the people in local government to the State house. “As I learned more about local government I realized that much of what the local governments do is dictated by state law. I hope to bring a logical approach of a professional engineer with a local government experience to the law-making process.
As I talked to current District 64 representative Tom Washburne about the job, it became clear to me that that there are only a few legislators with local government experience so I believe that my experience as a commissioner would be a valuable addition.”
Mr. Ungethiem will file for Indiana House District 64 in January of 2018.
