TERRE HAUTE — Jon Ford has announced his candidacy for the Indiana Senate District 38 seat in the General Assembly. District 38 includes all of Vigo County and the northern part of Clay County.

The senate seat, currently held by Democrat Tim Skinner of Terre Haute, is up for election in 2014.

“I am gratified to have a wonderful groundswell of support,” Ford, currently president of All State Manufacturing, stated in a news release. “But this is just the first step and I am looking forward to the whole campaign process — getting out and connecting with the great people of the Wabash Valley.”

Ford, a Republican, cites economic development, workforce training, education, the improvement of public infrastructure and energy production among his priorities if elected.

A current member of the Honey Creek Township Board, Ford also has served as chairman of the Indiana Arts Commission, president of the Swope Art Museum and president of the Indiana Leadership Forum. He also has served on the boards of directors for the Indiana Manufacturers Association, Leadership Wabash Valley and the Vigo County Youth Soccer Association.
