Lauer sworn in as District 59 representative

INDIANAPOLIS — Rep. Ryan Lauer, R-Columbus, took the oath of office Tuesday to serve as state representative for House District 59.

Indiana Supreme Court Chief Justice Loretta H. Rush administered the oath in the House Chamber of the Statehouse during Organization Day, the formal start to the legislative session.

“It is a privilege to serve as state representative of House District 59,” Lauer said. “I believe my previous experience working to improve public safety and promote fiscal responsibility while on the Bartholomew County Council has prepared me for this new role. I am excited to get to work for the people and help move Indiana forward.”

Lauer is a graduate of Indiana University and has a bachelor’s degree in biochemistry. He and his wife, Blair, have two daughters, Awyn and Lillian, and a son, Isaac. He is a member of Grace Lutheran Church and chair of the Grace Lutheran Church Congregation.
