IDA member announces candidacy for House seat
Dr. Dennis Zent, an Isaac Knapp District Dental Society member from Angola, announced he is a Republican candidate for the State Representative seat currently held by Rep. Dick Dodge (R-Ind.). Rep. Dodge recently informed constituents he would not be seeking reelection next year.
The newly formed 51st district includes nearly all of Steuben and LaGrange counties.
“As a dentist I am a small business owner who struggles with the same challenges and concerns all business owners face: over-regulation, high taxes, and constant government intrusion,” Dr. Zent said. “Healthcare professionals nationwide are finally becoming alarmed by the increasing interference of the government at all levels. I believe doctors need to step out of their comfort zone and attempt to find a cure for the sick state of affairs we find in all levels of government.”
Ed Popcheff, IDA Director of Governmental Affairs, urged all IDA members to support Dr. Zent’s candidacy.
“It will be good to have a dentist serving in the Indiana General Assembly,” Popcheff said. “One of the goals of IDPAC and ADPAC is to elect and support dentists who are knowledgeable and supportive of dental issues. Dr. Zent will bring dental knowledge and expertise to the House Republican caucus.”
Dr. Zent, who serves as the co-chair of ADPAC, has formed a campaign committee and is currently accepting contributions. Please send any contributions to the “Committee to Elect Denny Zent,” 3030 N. Bay View Rd., Angola, Ind., 46703.
