A former Lafayette City Councilman is running for a seat in Indianapolis.
Democrat Rick Cornstuble announced he will pursue the House District 26 currently held by Randy Truitt.
Cornstuble says education, local government reform, and job creation are among his top priorities and areas he thinks the current leadership is falling short.
He sat on the city council for four years before losing his re-election bid to Jerry Reynolds in November. Cornstuble says his time serving the city prepared him for the state legislature campaign.
He also worked as a teacher and spent 30-years with the Indiana State Teacher’s Association.
