CHANDLER – State Rep. Ron Bacon (R-Chandler) filed to run for re-election to represent House District 75.
Bacon has held the seat representing portions of Spencer, Pike and Warrick counties since 2010.

He is currently the vice chair of the House Committee on Public Health and serves as a member on the House Committee of Commerce, Small Business, Economic Development, the House Statutory Committee on the Interstate and International Cooperation and the Medicaid Advisory Committee.

“I am taking what I have learned working as a health professional for the past 50 years here in Southwest Indiana, and putting it to use to help vet legislation that positively impacts all Hoosiers,” Bacon said. “Providing health care while maintaining our state’s fiscal integrity are among my top priorities while serving the people of House District 75.”

During Bacon’s time in office, the legislature has made multiple tax-cut reforms making Indiana rank No. 5 in the nation and No. 1 in the Midwest for the best place to conduct business.

Bacon has also advocated for tax reform and fiscal veracity, as well as increasing economic development and family values in the great state of Indiana.
“We have locally seen the impact of these reforms as some of the industries in our communities like Alcoa and Toyota, have seen the need to put more Hoosiers to work,” Bacon said. “I will continue to support policies that encourage job and economic growth in our great state.”

Before his election to serve House District 75, Bacon served his community as the Warrick County Coroner, and was heavily involved with local organizations such as the St. Mary’s Warrick Hospital Foundation, Warrick County Chamber of Commerce, Boonville Kiwanis and Right to life of Southwestern Indiana.
