(INDIANAPOLIS) — The Indiana Chamber of Commerce announced today its endorsement of Christina Hale (D-Indianapolis) for re-election to the Indiana House of Representatives, District 87. The endorsement was made by Indiana Business for Responsive Government (IBRG), the non-partisan political program of the Indiana Chamber.
“In just her first term in the House, Christina Hale has distinguished herself as one of the most active, thoughtful and determined state legislators; she’s focused on really getting things done,” said Kevin Brinegar, president and CEO of the Indiana Chamber. “Indiana can and will lead the nation if we have elected leaders like Christina Hale who care deeply and work hard on important initiatives for the future of our economy and citizens.”
Representative Hale was also recognized as a Small Business Champion award winner by the Indiana Chamber in the fall of 2013.
“The endorsement of the state’s leading business organization, the Indiana Chamber of Commerce, is very meaningful to me” said State Representative Christina Hale. “Like the Indiana Chamber, I am focused on creating solutions for people and businesses that create good jobs, expand our economy, develop the skills of our workforce and meet our energy and infrastructure needs. Prosperity can and should be in reach for all Hoosiers.”
Representative Hale was elected to her first two-year term in 2012. She serves as the ranking minority member of the Commerce, Small Business and Economic Development Committee, as well as serving on the Government and Regulatory Reform Committee and Insurance, Utilities and Energy Committee. House District 87 is located entirely within Marion County and includes portions of Washington and Lawrence townships in the northern part of the county.
The Indiana Chamber has been the state’s leading business organization for more than 90 years, representing over 800,000 Hoosier workers through nearly 5,000 member companies across Indiana.
