Republican Sue Glick announced Monday that she is seeking her first full term as State Senator for District 13.
Glick was elected in a special caucus last December to fill the term of Marlin Stutzman, who resigned his seat after he was elected to represent Indiana’s Third District in the U.S. House of Representatives.
“In her brief time as a State Senator, Sue has proven to be a true leader and a strong conservative – and a valuable addition to the Republican caucus,” said Senate President Pro Tempore David Long (R-Ft. Wayne). “Her first session as a member of the General Assembly was one of the most contentious we’ve seen in years, so I’m very pleased she has decided to run for a full term. She has my full support.”
Glick believes she shares the common-sense conservative Hoosier values of hard work, fiscal responsibility and the protection of Second Amendment freedoms and the rights of the unborn. She is committed to working with her fellow legislators on these important issues.
“The state of Indiana must live within its means – just like hard-working Hoosier families must do – and together with my Senate colleagues, we passed an honestly balanced budget without raising taxes,” Glick said.
A former LaGrange County prosecuting attorney, Glick’s legal skills and expertise are a valuable addition to the General Assembly, where she serves on several key committees, including the Committee on Corrections, Criminal and Civil Procedures, the Committee on the Judiciary and the Committee on Elections. Glick is also a member of the Water Resources Study Committee, working to protect Indiana’s natural resources including the many lakes in Northeast Indiana, and the Probate Code Study Committee, where she is working to eliminate the state inheritance tax.
During the 2011 session, she achieved a 100 percent voting record and was named Legislator of the Year by the Indiana Volunteer Firefighters Association.
She currently serves on the LaGrange County Library Board and the LaGrange Corn School Committee and has served as legal counsel for the towns of Shipshewana and Topeka and the LaGrange County Park Board. Glick has owned and operated a private law practice in LaGrange since 1979.
A fifth-generation Hoosier, Glick is a graduate of Westview High School, Indiana University Bloomington, and Indiana University School of Law in Indianapolis.
She resides in LaGrange.
