INDIANAPOLIS — Dubois County’s newest state legislators were made official today.
State Reps. Shane Lindauer, R-Jasper, and Steve Bartels, R-Eckerty, took their oath of office at 11 a.m. this morning in the House of Representatives Chamber at the Indiana Statehouse. Indiana Supreme Court Justice Geoffrey Slaughter presided over the swearing-in ceremony.
Each representative will complete the last year of the previous representatives’ terms.
“I am humbled and honored for this opportunity to serve in the House and represent the values of our area,” Bartels said. “Indiana has been recognized for our strong business climate and for attracting employers, and I believe my experience as the president of the Crawford County Council, the acting county economic development director and as a small-business owner has prepared me to take on this new position and work with my fellow legislators to continue moving Indiana forward.”
Bartels replaces Lloyd Arnold in the District 74 seat, which includes Cass, Ferdinand, Jackson, Jefferson and Patoka townships in Dubois County, portions of Spencer and Orange counties, and all of Perry and Crawford counties. Arnold is now director of law enforcement for the Indiana Department of Natural Resources.
He previously served on the Crawford County Council and owns multiple small businesses in the community.
Lindauer is serving in the District 63 representative seat, replacing Mike Braun, who is running for U.S. Senate. District 63 encompasses includes Bainbridge, Boone, Columbia, Hall, Harbison, Madison and Marion townships in Dubois County and parts of Pike, Daviess and Martin counties.
“I am excited for the opportunity to represent the hardworking people of our area,” Lindauer said. “I look forward to drawing on my experiences as a small-business owner and a member of county government to work with my fellow legislators and continue making Indiana an excellent place to live, raise a family and do business.”
Lindauer and his wife, Stacy, live in Jasper with their two children. Lindauer attended Jasper High School and received a Bachelor of Science in industrial technology supervision from Indiana State University and a Doctorate of Chiropractic from Logan College.
