  • Rep. Cindy Ledbetter – District 75 representing portions of Gibson, Pike and Warrick counties since 2020.

During the 2023 session, the absence of multiple legislators was noticeable for those regularly attending the Saturday morning meetings. Becker, Hatfield and Tomes were the only legislators to consistently appear to take questions from the general public. For others, they had not attended at all in 2023, including McNamara who has not been to a Meet Your Legislator event at the library since January 2020.
