Former Indiana State Representative Bill Friend has been elected to the U.S. 31 Coalition Board of Directors. He served 16 years representing parts of five counties in north central Indiana and served as Republican Majority Leader.
“Bill Friend is an exemplar Hoosier who cares deeply about bringing U.S. 31 up to freeway grade status and the positive effects it will have on every community along the corridor,” commented Brad Bagwell, President of the U.S. 31 Coalition Board of Directors. “His expertise and his connections with just about everyone along the highway will be a formidable asset as we continue to push for finishing the entire highway.”
Friend holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of Indianapolis.
