State Representative-elect J. Michael Davisson (R-Salem) was sworn in today to serve as State Representative for House District 73.
Indiana Supreme Court Chief Justice Loretta H. Rush was sworn in in the State House chamber during a formal swearing-in ceremony. Davisson will serve the remainder of the term of his late father, former State Representative Steve Davisson of Salem, who died in September.
âIt is an honor and a privilege to have the opportunity to serve our community at the Statehouse and to carry on my father’s legacy and work,â said Davisson. âI firmly believe in a limited government that lives within its means, and I will always stand up for it, just like the Hoosiers do every day. I look forward to diving into this upcoming session and using my experience to keep Indiana’s momentum going. “
House District 73 includes Washington County and parts of Jackson, Lawrence, Orange, Clark, and Harrison counties.
Davisson is a longtime resident of Salem. He previously served as president of the Washington County Young Republicans and for nine years on the board of directors of the Indiana War Memorial Commission. He currently operates a family pharmacy in Salem.
Davisson is also a veteran of the military in Afghanistan and Iraq, and he retired in 2017 after 17 years of military service.
