Secretary of State Connie Lawson will be the featured speaker at the upcoming Starke County Lincoln Day Dinner. It’s scheduled Saturday, April 26 at the Bass Lake Community Center.
Gov. Mitch Daniels appointed Lawson to that post on March 16, 2012. He called her the obvious choice because of the local and state elections experience she brings to the office. Lawson served in the Indiana Senate for 16 years prior to her appointment. Before that she was clerk of the Hendricks County Circuit Court for eight years.
