LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - A Tippecanoe County man is throwing his hat into the ring for the Indiana House of Representatives District 25 seat. Alex Sabol announced his candidacy Sunday afternoon at the Tippecanoe County Democratic headquarters among friends, family and potential future colleagues like Rep. Chris Campbell and Rep Sheila Klinker.

Sabol is advocating for affordable health care, support for education and making Indiana a better place to live and work.

The 2009 Harrison High School valedictorian lived in New York City for several years after graduating from Indiana University with a degree from the Kelley School of Business. He said he's happy to be back with the chance to serve his community.

"I've been thinking about this for years," he said. "I've thought about coming back, really making a difference in my home community and so it's really exciting."

He's going up against incumbent Republican Don Lehe, who was first elected in 2002. Sabol said his goals for District 25 include bringing fresh perspective.

"Really what I saw that our state is in need of a new vision, especially this area is in need of a new vision for what is possible in the state," he said.

Sabol will be on the ticket for the May primary election. District 25 encompasses parts of Clinton and Cass Counties, Eastern Tippecanoe county and portions of White and Carroll Counties.
