Pete Miller to be sworn in as state senator
The Statehouse File
INDIANAPOLIS — Republican Pete Miller of Avon will become Indiana’s newest state senator on Tuesday when he is sworn in by Indiana Supreme Court Justice Robert Rucker.
Miller replaces Connie Lawson, who left the Senate when Gov. Mitch Daniels appointed her secretary of state.
Miller won on the seventh ballot at a caucus of Hendricks County GOP leaders. He will serve the remainder of a term that ends with this fall’s election.
“We congratulate Pete Miller on becoming Indiana’s newest state senator,” Indiana Republican Chairman Eric Holcomb said in a statement. “As an active member of our party and in his community, Pete will be a great representative for District 24.”
The swearing in ceremony will be at 3 p.m. in the Senate chamber at the Statehouse.
A caucus to fill the GOP’s general election ballot vacancy for Senate District 24 will be held shortly after the May 8 primary.
