INDIANAPOLIS ­­– Aaron Freeman, an Indianapolis City-County Councillor, announced Wednesday he will run as a Republican for the seat being vacated by Sen. Patricia Miller.

Miller, R-Indianapolis, recently announced she would retire at the end of the year.

“My experience as a practicing attorney, coupled with the active role on the Indianapolis City-County Council for the past six years, provides me with the qualifications to build on Sen. Miller’s legacy,” Freeman said in a statement.

Freeman became a member of the City-County Council in March 2010. Freeman opened his own private practice in Franklin Township in 2010.

“My record shows that I am a conservative who fights for lower taxes, job creation, economic development, better neighborhoods, safer streets, and time-honored cultural values,” Freeman said in a statement.

Freeman and his wife, Heather, live in Franklin Township with their two young sons. He attended Bradley University and the University Of Dayton School Of Law. Freeman also served on the Board of Directors of the Indianapolis Bar Association from 2010-2014.

“It is important to me to continue public service,” Freeman said in a statement. “I am humbled by the prospect of once again listening to my community and being there to voice their values.”
