Rep. Ziemke ready to serve Hoosiers

RUSHVILLE — STATEHOUSE –Indiana Legislators were sworn in this week during Organization Day, marking the first meeting of the 118th General Assembly. All 100 members of the House, including 19 new Republicans, were sworn in by Chief Justice Brent Dickson.

“Just like a responsible family, we will sit together at our desks on the House floor and in the committee rooms of this building – and work through the monumental issues facing our state,” said newly re-elected Speaker of the House, Brian C. Bosma (R-Indianapolis).

State Rep. Cindy Ziemke (R-Batesville) was sworn in as a new member of the freshman class and represents House District 55, which includes portions of Rush, Fayette, Franklin, Ripley and Decatur counties.

“I am honored and excited to represent my community,” said Rep. Ziemke. “Making Indiana the talk of the nation in regard to employment rates and economic growth is my top priority. Hoosiers have the talent and resources to make our state unparalleled in these areas, and I’m ready to help make it happen.”

In October, the House Republican Caucus released their legislative agenda, making it clear that their focus will be on financial integrity, jobs and education. That focus was echoed today as the 69 House Republicans prepared for the upcoming session with a resolve to accomplish those priorities and continue propelling Indiana to be a state where Hoosiers have the ability to own their American Dream.

“Continuing to balance the budget will help Indiana remain a beacon of hope to the rest of the country,” said Rep. Ziemke. “Seeing Hoosiers head back to work will hopefully spur the rest of the country into positive action. I’m excited to see what happens in the upcoming session and am thankful to be a part of it.”

Rep. Ziemke (R-Batesville) represents portions of Rush, Fayette, Franklin, Ripley and Decatur counties.
