INDIANAPOLIS - Standing before family and friends, State Rep. Melanie Wright (D-Yorktown) took part in her first Organization Day as a member of the Indiana House of Representatives and vowed to make service for the 35th House District a cornerstone of her legislative agenda.

“I can imagine no greater honor than to be selected to serve as the representative for the people of the 35th District, and to take part in today’s activities before my mom and dad, Sharon and Richard Wright, is a particular thrill,” Wright said.
“Now it is time to get to work, and I pledge to my constituents that their voices will be heard in the Indiana Statehouse in the weeks and months to come,” she continued.
“I will make every effort to continue to get out and about the 35th House District, and find out what concerns the people who live and work here,” Wright said. “I would advise my constituents to get ready for town hall meetings and community chats at area restaurants and coffee shops. You probably shouldn’t even be surprised to find me knocking on your door some evening, just to talk for a while.
“In the next few weeks, you should be getting a legislative survey in the mail that will be asking for your opinion about a number of issues that we will be facing in the 2015 session, such as a new state budget, ways to help our schools, and solutions to getting more Hoosiers back to work at jobs that pay them a decent wage,” the lawmaker stated. “You also will have the chance to take this survey through my website, which can be found at www.in.gov/h35.
“I look forward to meeting with you in the days ahead, and if there is anything I can do to help you, please let me know,” Wright said.
