Victoria Spartz has been selected to fill the District 20 seat in the Indiana Senate. Spartz, who currently serves as chief financial officer for Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill, will succeed Luke Kenley September 30.
Spartz is a Certified Personal Accountant who beat out six others in a local Republican Party caucus Wednesday in Noblesville. The other candidates were Brad Beaver, Sue Finkam, Mark Hall, Joe Morris, Dan Schmidt and Megan Wiles.
Indiana Republican Party State Chairman Kyle Hupfer said "I am confident that Senator-elect Victoria Spartz will hit the ground running and quickly become a valued asset in the State Senate as we continue to provide leadership and results for every Hoosier taxpayer and family."
Kenley announced his retirement from the General Assembly in July, saying "it’s now time for others to have the opportunity to serve Hamilton County and our great state." He has served in the Senate since 1992 and is best known as an architect of several state budgets as Senate Appropriations Chair.
