Messer to serve as GOP Congressional Freshman Class President

Shelbyville — Decatur County native Luke Messer announced Thursday that he has been selected to serve as President of the House Republican Freshman Class for the 113th Congress.

At the beginning of each term, the incoming Republican Freshman Class selects individuals to represent the class and serve in a variety of leadership roles.  Messer was elected in a vote held during orientation Wednesday night in Washington, D.C.  The Republican Freshman Class also elected the following positions:

Freshman Representative to the House Republican Steering Committee—Richard Hudson (NC-8)

Freshman Representative to the House Republican Leadership Committee—Ann Wagner (MO-2)

Freshman Representative to the House Republican Policy Committee—Brad Wenstrup (OH-2)

“I am honored to be selected for this leadership opportunity,” said Messer. “My constituents want the 113th Congress to focus on jobs and the economy. In this role, that is exactly what I plan to do.”

“Our nation faces many challenges and I am convinced that the freshman class can contribute to the national debate,” continued Messer. “This new class includes a remarkably gifted group of proven leaders — each with their own unique set of talents—and we are eager to do all we can to move our country forward.”  

Luke Messer is the Congressman-elect for Indiana’s 6th Congressional District, a 19 county region of east-central and southeastern Indiana comprised of manufacturing and agricultural communities.

Messer, a former two-term State Representative, served on the House Ways and Means Committee and on the House leadership team during his tenure at the Indiana Statehouse.

Messer grew up in Greensburg, and he and his wife Jennifer are raising their two daughters and a son in Shelbyville.
