Candidates running for State Rep

The five candidates seeking to replace Matt Lori as 59th District state representative gathered during a forum at the St. Joseph County Bar Association earlier this week.

John Bippus, Aaron Miller, Mike Mroz, Roger Rathburn and Bob Still were guests of the bar association and afforded the opportunity to discuss their candidacies.

‘ The primary election is not until August, but Judge Jeff Middleton explained guests of honor have already been secured for the board’s April and May meetings, and it does not meet during the summer months.

Lori is term-limited and is in the midst of serving his sixth and final year as state representative.
