Terre Haute, IN – Today at 10:00am at Democratic Headquarters, 120 Cherry Street, Chris Gambill announced that he will run for Indiana Senate District 38.
“I’m running because I am going to fight for our families and the values of hard work, community, and the opportunities that come with them. I want to make sure the voices of hard-working Hoosiers are heard in our Statehouse,” Gambill said.
The life-long Terre Haute resident and community servant hopes to work with legislators of both parties to bring District 38’s interests back into the discussion in Indianapolis.
“The people of District 38 have been ignored and left behind for too long. While lobbyists and special interests continue to have a larger role in the policy coming from Indianapolis, our community continues to face eroding dollars for public education, tax hikes, and fewer living wage jobs. It’s time for a change.”
In addition to protecting vulnerable Hoosiers in his law practice, Gambill has decades of experience in law enforcement, as legal advisor to the Terre Haute Police Department, as a Drug Forfeiture Attorney, and as a Special Trial Deputy for the Clay County Prosecutor. Gambill has also served as the Attorney for Clay City since 1984.
Away from his practice, Gambill serves as an elder for his church, is involved with 4-H, has served as President of the Downtown Terre Haute Farmer’s Market and was an original board member of CHANCES for Youth. He has also enjoyed over 20 years as a youth sports coach in the community.
Chris and his wife of 40 years, Bionca, have three children, Noah, Naaman, and Kit, and two lovely grandchildren, Miah and Wiley.
