City by the, The Voice of Michigan City, Indiana _ Election Headquarters _ Parry running for Pelath seat

Posted by: Southsider2k12 Jan 22 2018, 03:43 PM

Michigan City resident and Democrat Duane Parry is declaring his candidacy for the 9th District seat in the Indiana House, currently occupied by Democrat Scott Pelath, who is not seeking re-election.

Parry is a lifelong resident of Northwest Indiana, a 27-year member of the Carpenters Local 599, and most recently quality control manager for Superior Construction on BP’s Whiting Refinery modernization project. Parry--who was educated at Purdue University and served six years in the U.S. Navy--also served on the Michigan City Common Council from 2012 to 2016, for two years at its president.

“I’m a no-nonsense, common sense person, of conservative values and a realist, what I feel government has a severe shortage of,” Parry said. “But equally as important, I have the ability, desire, and dedication to continue representing Northwest Indiana in the same manner and level of excellence that Scott Pelath has for the last 20 years.”
