May 16: Rotary Welcomes Governor Eric Holcomb

By on May 12, 2017

The Rotary Club of Indianapolis is excited to welcome Governor Eric Holcomb to a casual conversation on our Rotary stage on Tuesday, May 16. Rotarian Laura Sniadecki will interview the Governor and we’re certain to learn a bit about him and his vision for the state of Indiana. We’ll meet upstairs at Ivy Tech Culinary and Conference Center and as always, the public and guests are welcome.

A life-long Hoosier, Governor Holcomb is a veteran of the United States Navy, served as the state’s 51st Lt. Governor, was a trusted advisor to both Governor Mitch Daniels and Senator Dan Coats, and was a former state chairman of the Indiana Republican Party.

He was elected governor in November 2016, following an unprecedented 106-day campaign and was sworn in on January 9, 2017.

Throughout his career in service, Governor Holcomb has earned a reputation of being a consensus builder. He has traveled extensively throughout the state; visiting, shooting and making a basket in each of Indiana’s 92 counties.

Governor Holcomb is a graduate of Pike High School in Indianapolis and Hanover College in southeastern Indiana where he majored in U.S. History. He is a member of the Indiana Farm Bureau, the National Federation of Independent Business, the Indianapolis WWII Round Table, the American Legion Post 777; and is a board member of the Benjamin Harrison Presidential Site.

He and his wife, Janet, live with their dog, Henry, in the Governor’s Residence on North Meridian Street in Indianapolis.
