Another Hamilton County Legislator will be in a leadership position in the Indiana House of Representatives.
Todd Huston, a Republican represent District 37, was named Speaker-Elect Monday. He will replace House Speaker Brian Bosma when Bosma’s term ends. The current speaker said he is not running for re-election.
Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb said Huston is a great choice.
“Todd Huston is a home run pick for Indiana House Speaker,” Holcomb said. “He has proven himself a strong leader and has touched so many facets of state government through the budget process. Having a year to learn from Speaker Bosma will prove invaluable. I look forward to working with him and Sen. Bray going forward.”
The head of the Republican Party in Indiana, Kyle Hupfer, also applauded the selection.
"Congratulations to Todd Huston on being selected Speaker-Elect. During his service in the House, Todd has demonstrated the dedicated, thoughtful and principled leadership needed to serve as speaker. Brian Bosma leaves behind a historic legacy of accomplishment that will continue with Todd Huston now at the helm."

Huston is 47 and married to Denise. They have children, Elizabeth and Jake. The family resides in Fishers.
