Bob Bischoff seeks reelection
Bischoff announced he has filed his paperwork to seek re-election
as 68th District Representative in the Indiana House.
Im so proud to represent my friends and neighbors
in the Indiana House of Representatives in Indianapolis,
Bischoff said. My priority going forward this session, and
if my constituents give me another opportunity to represent them,
will be on jobs and protecting the local riverboat revenue dollars
our community has. Those funds are so important for local job
creation, infrastructure improvements and educational opportunities.
Ive had to fight to keep those dollars in our community,
with members of both parties, but my constituents can count on
me to keep up that fight.
Bischoff serves in the Indiana House of Representatives as Chairman
of the Natural Resources committee and is a member of the Agriculture
& Rural Development committee and also the Roads and Transportation
Rep. Bischoff was distinguished last year with three major awards
from groups, who recognized his outstanding service. He was named
Legislator of the Year by all three, including: the Indiana Volunteer
Firemen Association, the Soil and Water Conservation Districts,
and the Conservation Alliance. Its such an honor to
be recognized by these great groups, Bischoff added.
Even though this is a short session going on now at the Statehouse,
Its been a busy session with several major pieces of legislation
before the House. This session, Rep. Bischoff authored legislation
to protect the right of law-abiding, permit-holding Hoosiers to
carry their firearms in their vehicle. He voted for allowing Hoosiers
to vote on adding a provision to the Constitution to cap property
taxes. He has continued to be a strong supporter of kids and education.
We only have one time to educate children and we have to
get it right that time, Bischoff noted.
Bischoff is accessible and available to his constituents and will
continue to be so. You can contact him at his home, the Statehouse
at 1-800-382-9842 or email him at: email@example.com. My job is
to serve the residents of House District 68 and Im so grateful
to help in any way I can, he concluded.
Bischoff is a member of the Indiana Farm Bureau, Knights of Columbus,
Indiana Right to Life, North Dearborn Conservation Club, and St.
Lawrence Church. He and his wife, Ardis, have a son, two daughters
and are proud grandparents of seven.
