Republican precinct committee members have picked the successor to former State Representative Phyllis Pond. The woman who served in the state legislature longer than any other woman in Indiana history died last month.
Fort Wayne attorney Casey Cox was selected from among seven candidates that were competing for the seat. Cox will begin serving the 85th House District immediately. That covers northern and much of eastern Allen County.
After 35 years in office, Pond resigned in early September citing health concerns. She died two weeks later before her resignation took effect.
