 LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — State Rep. Sheila Klinker is running for her 19th term to represent Indiana House District 27.

That serves parts of Lafayette and West Lafayette.

The 81-year-old said Thursday night in front of family, friends and fellow Democrats she loves people and loves being able to help out people.

She is a member of three committees in the House of Representatives:

Ways and Means, Veterans Affairs and Public Safety and Education.

In her reelection speech she said thanks to those who inspired her and pushed her to stay in politics.

Klinker said she'll keep doing the job until her performance starts lacking.

"When I feel like I can't do the job as I have done Jordan that's when I will stop; when I don't feel like I can't carry through some of the promises and work I have done in the past," said Klinker.

As of Thursday, January 23rd, Klinker is running unopposed.

She said she will continue to fight for better teacher pay in Indiana.
