MEET JOE LANNAN
A Hoosier at Heart
"I decided to run for the House Seat in order to return to common Hoosiers a voice in Indianapolis. Too many times our local schools, communities, and businesses have been overlooked for the interests of political aspirations and deal-making. I want to bring the conversation BACK to district 63."
Born and raised on a farm in Loogootee, Joe has always been an advocate for others. After studying at the University of Evansville, he worked teaching Math and Science at a high-poverty school in Evansville. During the untimely death of his Father in 2012, he returned home and has ran the family grain farm ever since.
In 2013, he and his partner Rick established eSolve Solutions, LLC, a consulting firm focused on grant-seeking and training for local schools. In 2017, he helped to secure over $1 million dollars in funding for schools in the region.
While working alongside farmers and schools in the area, he has heard the demand for representation at the statehouse.
Joe and his partner live in Loogootee on his family's farm. They participate in foster-parenting, caring for children impacted by the drug epidemic.
