State Sen. Eckerty recognized for
100 percent voting attendance record
Senate President Pro Tempore David Long (R-Fort Wayne) today recognized State Sen. Doug Eckerty (R-Yorktown) for his outstanding 2011 voting attendance record of 100 percent.
“Often, important meetings or other matters can happen simultaneously while the Senate is in session – which can make casting every vote a challenge,” Long said. “I believe Senator Eckerty’s strong commitment to Senate District 26 is clearly shown by his perfect record.”
This session, 118 Senate bills moved to the governor’s desk.
“These pieces of legislation represent the people’s work, including a balanced budget, private-sector job initiatives, education improvements and a fair redistricting plan,” Long said. “I’m proud to say Senator Eckerty gave his best throughout the legislative process.”
This session, state records show 299 of 317 Third Reading roll call votes in the Senate were bipartisan in nature. Of these, 128 were unanimous.

Since last fall, I’ve had the privilege of meeting almost 8,000 Hoosier educators during public forums and school visits across the state. Earlier this week, I had the pleasure of visiting with teachers and administrators from the Muncie area. This visit was a particularly uplifting and productive opportunity.
Like most gatherings I attend, Monday’s event at Ball State’s Alumni Center was a passionate affair. At the end of the evening, not everyone walked away agreeing with reforms proposed by the Indiana Department of Education and members of Indiana’s General Assembly. However, I was impressed by the respectful and collaborative attitudes of the roughly 400 educators who attended. Their dedication and professionalism contributed to an honest exchange of ideas on education policy that will surely produce positive results for the students in your area.
I would like to extend a special thank you to Al Rent who skillfully moderated the forum and ensured the discussion focused on the issues that matter most to students, parents and educators. Sen. Doug Eckerty also deserves praise for organizing and publicizing such a successful event.
Last but not least, I want to thank the educators whose thoughtful questions and innovative ideas inspire me to continue traveling the Hoosier state to receive feedback and encouragement from education stakeholders. This gathering of talent in Muncie proves once again that working together we can ensure all Indiana students receive the quality education they deserve — one that sets no limits on their future accomplishments.
TONY BENNETT • STATE SUPERINTENDENT OF PUBLIC INSTRUCTION • MARCH 18, 2011
Printing the public letter of Tony Bennett is not an endoresment of this blog by Mr. Bennett or Mr. Doug Eckerty.
Why I support Doug Eckerty for Indiana Senate.
Doug supports property tax caps and the right for every Hoosier to vote on this issue.
Please take a few minutes to review Doug’s website. I think you will agree, Doug is the right choice for Delaware County and Indiana.
