Upward Movement in the Indiana YR's

This past week, I was elected by the board of the Indiana Federation of Young Republicans to 5th District Chairman.  Until that point I was serving as Vice Chair of the 5th District to former Chairman Kurt Luidhardt who had recently stepped down.  I had also previously served as Chairman of the Hancock County Young Republicans and currently serve as Vice-Chair of that group.

Mark Warner, from Indianapolis, will be taking my place as District Vice Chair.

Mark and I want to thank State Chairman Daniel Kinnamon and our peers on the Board of the Indiana Federation of Young Republicans for having the faith and confidence in us to take on these roles.  Currently, out of the 5th districts 11 counties, only four have established YR groups (Hancock, Hamilton, Marion and Johnson).  It is our goal to establish more groups in at least three to four more counties in the district before the next State YR Convention in the summer of 2011 and to eventually have established groups in every county in the district.
