Announcement hints at next step in transition

State Rep. Charlie Brown’s announcement Monday that he is retiring from the Indiana House does not give the reason that elected officials often use, ‘to spend more time with their families’.

Instead, the press release says “… with my health quite good, my mind still working overtime, and my passion for good government still burning brightly, as I return to Lake County there is one more job I should do, God and the voters willing. One more thing – with my experience and intellect I could do very well for the people – one more time.”

Later, Rep. Brown wouldn’t clarify “one more time,” but said, “There will be a part two, specifically outlining what happens next.”

Rep. Brown’s statement said, “I believe I have fought the good fight for a long time, but the time has come to stop these frequent drives up and down I-65. I have discussed with my wife, my close friends, and my colleagues the possibility of not running for re-election to the Indiana House of Representatives. I have prayerfully and thoughtfully considered all the factors involved.

“And though the voters after all these campaigns gave me my best win in the latest primary election, the time has come to leave Indianapolis. So, a few days ago, I made my last trip to an official opening day of a session of the Indiana State Legislature.”

Rep. Brown has represented District 3 – Gary, Hobart, Lake Station, New Chicago, and portions of Porter County – for 35 years.
