Democratic State Representative Karlee Macer has announced she will not run for re-election.

She made the announcement this afternoon in a Facebook post.

“One of the greatest honors and privileges of my life has been to serve as State Representative for House District 92. When I ran for office, our community was crying out for better infrastructure, economic development and a better quality of life for all Hoosiers. Together, we’ve worked hard to accomplish our shared goals and fight for families, veterans and workers alike, and while this work never ends, I’m proud of the steps forward we have taken.

After much deliberation, reflection and family input, I’ve decided it’s time to pass the torch to the next generation of leaders in our community to pick up these causes and champion them for our state. While I will not be seeking re-election in 2020, my passion for service and heart for Hoosiers means that I won’t be far, and will continue to work hard for our communities and for Democrats around the state.

I am eternally grateful for the opportunity I have been given to serve my community and our great state, and for the people I have been able to meet on this incredible journey.”

Macer represents the west side of Indianapolis and she had been named as a possible contender for Governor.   She served as the ranking Democrat on the Veterans Affairs and Public Safety Committee.  She was elected back in 2012.
