Indiana State Representative Bill Davis is resigning from the legislature to take a job in Governor Mike Pence’s administration.  This morning, Lieutenant Governor Sue Ellspermann named Davis the new executive director for the Office of Community and Rural Affairs.  The Republican from Portland has served District 33 for nine years.  His district includes Jay County and portions of Randolph and Delaware counties.   Davis says his decision to resign was difficult, but he is looking forward to his new job.

Davis says his resignation is effective on November 3rd.   In the legislature, he serves as Chairman of the Public Policy Committee.  Before serving in the Statehouse, Davis was an auctioneer and real estate agent.  Republican precinct officials in Davis’s district will appoint a successor to fill out the rest of his term through December of 2014.
