I chose today to endorse Mark Rutherford for Secretary of State. In the few years I have been politically active, I have met quite a few people involved in Indiana politics. Few have impressed me in the ways that Mark has, both as a public servant and as a person. Mark’s record as Chair of the Public Defender’s Commission speaks to his strength as a leader and his focus on efficiency. Mark has selflessly served Indiana and too many other organizations for me to list.

Mark is exactly the sort of person that would serve the interest of all Hoosiers and would be a great Secretary of State. I gladly give my support to him, and I hope you will join me in making Mark Rutherford Indiana’s next Secretary of State.
