Carmel resident runs for House as ‘a fresh voice’

Carmel, Ind. — Local real estate broker Ashley Klein filed Wednesday as a Democratic candidate for the Indiana House of Representatives, District 39, to represent the majority of Carmel. The Republican incumbent has held the seat since 1996.

“New leadership in this seat presents an opportunity to bring a fresh voice fighting for funding for our public schools, redistricting reform and environmental issues,” Klein said.

“After the recent municipal elections, we’ve seen that Carmel residents are shifting as voters, recognizing one-party rule isn’t right for us,” she added.

State Rep. Ed Delaney, a Democrat who represents neighboring House District 86 in Marion County, supports Klein’s candidacy.

Carmel led the way in the historic shift in Hamilton County, with the groundbreaking election of a Democrat to city council. Klein believes Carmel residents are ready to elect a Democrat to the Indiana State House.

Klein promises to be a leader who will advance the interests of this welcoming and inclusive city. She also is committed to working across the aisle to develop the best legislative solutions for our community.
