Howey Politics Indiana

Longtime Democrat State Sen. Frank Mrvan abruptly announced his retirement on Tuesday. "Today I notified Indiana State Senate Majority Leader Rodric Bray that I am retiring effective January 11, 2022," said Mrvan. "This journey into public service would not have been possible without the support of my lovely wife Jean and countless others over the years who have allowed me to be the most effective leader I could be for the constituents of Northwest Indiana. No one could have imagined after my first successful campaign to serve as the City Councilman for the Sixth District of the City of Hammond in 1972 that the citizens would support me to continue a career in public service for five decades. Holding the public trust in elected office is an incredible honor and responsibility. Throughout my career, I have always placed a value on being able to listen to the concerns of constituents and be their voice in our state’s Capitol."
