GREGG NAMES HALE AS RUNNING

INDIANAPOLIS – Citing her record of bipartisan accomplishment, today John Gregg, Democratic candidate for governor, named State Representative Christina Hale as his running mate.

A former chief communications officer with Kiwanis International, Hale is completing her second term representing the Northside of Indianapolis in the Indiana House of Representatives.

“In Christina Hale, I’ve found a partner who shares my commitment to working across the aisle to get things done,” said Gregg, a former university president and Indiana House Speaker. “Throughout her career, Christina has demonstrated that she is a consensus builder, a problem solver and someone who isn’t afraid to take on the tough issues. That’s exactly the type of leadership Indiana needs.”

In the Indiana House, Hale has worked with Republican majorities on legislation to support small business, fight crime, combat sexual assault, lower utility rates and bring attention to the state’s water and sewer infrastructure needs. She currently serves on the Commerce, Small Business and Economic Development; Insurance; and Utilities, Energy and Telecommunications committees.

“I know John Gregg to be a good man and a great leader. He is committed to finding solutions and getting the work of the people done and so am I,” said Hale. “We share an ambitious vision for all Hoosiers to create solid economic opportunities and strong schools, while responsibly addressing the ever-pressing needs of our failing infrastructure and our state’s drug and crime problems.”

Prior to serving in the state legislature, Hale worked at Kiwanis International, a global service organization, in various roles within state government and as a newspaper reporter.

A graduate of Purdue University, Hale was born and raised in Michigan City. She lives in Indianapolis with her husband, Chris, and has an adult son, Owen.
