SEELYVILLE -- Wabash Valley resident Alan Morrison, Republican, announced his candidacy for the Indiana House of Representatives in the new House District 42 Thursday.
Morrison said he is running because he believes it is time for "our corner of the state to have a committed conservative legislator who will fight to lower taxes and get the government out of the way so our local economy can have the freedom to grow again."
"Our team is so excited to bring a new conservative voice to the statehouse," Morrison said. "We are looking forward to getting out and meeting the hard working Hoosiers in District 42 over the next few months.
"I believe the people of West Central Indiana deserve a strong conservative representative in Indianapolis who will reflect their values and bring jobs to our part of the state."
Morrison has lived and worked in Vigo County for more than a decade at the Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology.
As the Assistant Director for Recreational Facilities, Morrison has had the opportunity to work with young people who will be tomorrow's leaders and manage some of the finest athletic facilities in the Midwest.
Morrison said he believes there is a need for more people representing Hoosiers who know how to work for a living and not more career politicians.
Morrison is married to Cinda and they have two children, Katelyn and Derek.
He and his family attend the Seelyville United Methodist Church.
House District 42 includes portions of Clay, Fountain, Parke, Vermillion, Vigo and Warren counties.
