Thursday, January 10, 2013

Bruce Lemmon
CARMEL -- On Thursday, Governor-elect Mike Pence named additional appointments within his administration.

Another Clay County resident was named to the administration.

Originally appointed commissioner of the Department of Correction (DOC) in early 2011, Bruce Lemmon will serve under the Pence Administration.

Under Lemmon's leadership, the Indiana Department of Corrections has focused on helping offenders be successful upon their release.

Prior to this role, Lemmon served as the Superintendent of the Putnamville Correctional Facility.

During his 36-year career, Lemmon has served in a variety of capacities within the DOC, including Supervisor of Work Release Services, Assistant Superintendent of the Indiana Girls School, Regional Director of Adult Operations, Superintendent of the Wabash Valley Correctional Facility and Deputy Commissioner.

Lemmon previously served in the United States Army and is a graduate of Indiana State University.

Other appointments included Danny Lopez and Jackie Cissell as special assistants to the Governor, Victor Smith as Indiana Secretary of Commerce, Eric Doden as Chief Executive Officer of the Indiana Economic Development Corporation, William VanNess as State Health Commissioner and Sean Keefer as Commissioner of Labor.

"With decades of experience, the individuals appointed are experts within their field," Pence said. "This depth of knowledge will serve Hoosiers well as we work in the days ahead to make Indiana the state that works."

Bruce is a good guy. I have known him since our high school years and worked under him at Putnamville. He is the man for the job. He always cared about his employees, and that is unusual for a superintendent.
