Skillman Says She Wants To Stay In Politics

Lieutenant Governor Becky Skillman says she is weighing a number of career options once her time in office ends.

At a campaign stop with lieutenant governor candidate Sue Ellspermann in Bloomington Thursday, Skillman said she wants to stay involved in politics, even if it is not through elective office.

“Former Congressman Lee Hamilton and I chair the states Bicentennial commission so that will take us to the year 2016. I’m also Indiana’s new representative on the Republican national committee,” Skillman says. “Beyond that I’m considering some opportunities in international trade, economic development, agribusiness and corporate board leadership.”

Skillman, previously a state senator from Bedford, has also said she might return to her home community after leaving the Statehouse.
