Meet the Candidates: Republican David Heine, State Representative, 85th District

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – Indiana candidate for State Representative, 85th District, Republican David Heine describes himself as devoted. He wants to promote economic growth and retain current jobs, and believes in a limited, but effective and efficient government.

Heine has lived and worked in the district his entire life, and wants to take some of the common sense he learned growing up on the farm with his business experience and apply it to government to make the district better for families. During the primary he visited 10,000 homes.

“I listened to the people. I listened to their values, listened to their concerns, and I quickly realized in order to be a good representative of the people, I needed to retire,” Heine said.

Heine retired September 1 to focus his energies on the campaign.

Heine is running against Democrat Kathy Zoucha and will be on the General Election ballot in November.
