Senate President Pro Tem Rodric Bray (R-Martinsville) made the following statement today regarding Secretary of State Connie Lawson's resignation announcement:

STATEHOUSE (Feb. 15, 2021) – "Secretary Lawson has had a remarkable tenure as a public servant, and she is someone all public servants, myself included, can learn from. Over the years she has conducted herself with integrity, strength and determination – never backing down from a challenge or a call to serve – and Indiana should be proud to have had this woman in leadership in our state for so long.

"I am grateful to her for bringing a quiet competence to her office every day for the last nine years. She has given all Hoosiers confidence in the integrity of our elections that is so very important, particularly in the 2020 elections.

"It has truly been a pleasure to serve alongside Secretary Lawson. I wish her and her family the best as she transitions into the next phase of her life and offer her my hearty congratulations on a job well done."
