Haigh also seeks 84th House District seat

Democrat Fred Haigh has also filed to run for the 84th House District seat.

Haigh’s name was not immediately updated on a Secretary of State listing Friday afternoon following the noon filing.

He has served as an educator in public and private schools, a financial planner and adjunct faculty member to Manchester University and Ball State University.

“I am passionate about our community and the future of education in Indiana,” Haigh said. “Throughout my career I have seen Fort Wayne grow and have been an advocate for the revitalization of our downtown. But I strongly believe that the 84th House District has not been represented fairly, wisely, or with an open mind. We need a new representative who will focus on area jobs, economic growth, and middle-class values, not someone who is focused on distracting social issues.

He is unopposed on the Democratic primary ballot.

On the GOP side, incumbent Rep. Bob Morris, R-Fort Wayne, faces challenger Michael Barranda.
