Gill vying for District 68 representative

Rick Gill has declared his candidacy for Indiana House of Representatives District 68, according to a press release.

The Franklin County resident and business owner hopes to use his experience to represent and stand up for the residents of the district.

One of his priorities as District 68 representative would be to bring jobs to this area. He would work with economic development groups in the counties and with the state to improve the economy and would work hard to keep riverboat revenues directed to this area.

Education is also a big priority. He hopes to work with Glenda Ritz, Indiana superintendent of public instruction, to improve the school system and will work hard on anti-bullying legislation.

Gill grew up in Connersville and graduated from Connersville High School in 1975. He worked at Ready Tool & Die as a machinist. He was in the United States Army from 1978-85 and stayed in the guard and reserve until 2002, retiring as a master sergeant. He entered the Indiana State Police in 1985 and was assigned to the Connersville District with duty in Franklin County. He served as a detective for three years, retiring in June 2011 as a master trooper.

He has served as head of the Franklin County Little League, 4-H Association board member and Blooming Grove Volunteer Fire Department. He is a member of St. Michael the Archangel Catholic Church, Brookville, where he served as parish council president.

Gill is also a member of the Fairfield Free and Accepted Masonic Lodge 98, American Legion Firing Squad and Veterans of Foreign Wars. He serves on the Franklin County School Corp. board and Franklin County Redevelopment Commission and was instrumental in bringing a zip line to the county.

He and his wife, Vickie, have three children and nine grandchildren.
