Incumbent Republican State Representative Matt Lehman is being challenged in the November 6 general election by Democrat newcomer Mike Snyder for the 79th Indiana House of Representatives’ seat.
Lehman resides at 663 Lehman St., Berne. He first ran for the 79th District House seat in 2008 when former Rep. Mike Ripley announced he would not seek re-election. Lehman was re-elected in 2010 without opposition. He was elected to the Adams County Council in 1994, serving as its president from 2002-2008.
