(INDIANAPOLIS) – Indiana Republican Party Chairman Kyle Hupfer released this statement following Indiana Speaker of the House Brian Bosma’s announcement today that he will retire as the Indiana Speaker of the House following the 2020 legislative session and will not seek re-election:
“Speaker Bosma’s leadership in the Statehouse has made Indiana more prosperous and improved the lives of generations of Hoosiers. When we talk about the Indiana Success Story, one constant during the decades-long turnaround for our state has been Brian Bosma. We’re now a state of balanced budgets, able to make record investments in education and infrastructure, attract jobs from all over the world, and improve the health and wellness of our citizens.
“Our party is stronger because of his leadership and Indiana is better because of his decades of service. We’re grateful for all Brian’s done to make Indiana better and congratulate him on a well-earned retirement.”
Governor Eric J. Holcomb offered the following statement on House Speaker Brian Bosma.
“So many know Brian Bosma for his contributions of unparalleled consequence at a time when our state needed strength in the Speaker’s Chair. Others know him for his incredible capacity to give to causes serving those most in need. Since the turn of this century, I’ve come to know Brian as a trusted friend, and for that reason alone, he’ll remain on my speed dial. Speaker Bosma’s the type of state leader you don’t replace, you only follow. I’m wishing Brian and Cheryl an equally personally fulfilling next chapter in life, once this one comes to a close.”
