[r85] Rep. Cox honors Pond with highway resolution
Start Date: 2/20/2014Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 2/20/2014
Entry Description
STATEHOUSE – State Representative Casey Cox (R-Fort Wayne) authored a resolution requesting the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) to name a portion of U.S. Highway 24 the “Phyllis J. Pond Memorial Highway.” The resolution passed out of the House unanimously today. 

“Rep. Pond was a true public servant, and renaming Highway 24 in her honor is an appropriate tribute to her legacy,” said Rep. Cox. “As a legislator and an educator, she was always dedicated to the betterment and well-being of our community and state.”

The late State Rep. Phyllis Pond passed away in September of last year after a battle with pulmonary fibrosis. The resolution urges INDOT to memorialize Rep. Pond by renaming the portion of U.S. Highway 24 that extends from U.S. Highway 30 east of New Haven to State Line Road in Allen County.

“Rep. Pond left enormous shoes to fill,” said Rep. Cox. “She led by example and stood firmly on her principles throughout her tenure, and I strive to do the same. Her commitment to public service left an imprint on our community and the Statehouse. I hope that in some small way, the renaming of the highway will remind folks of Phyllis and her always caring spirit.”

Although not legally binding, the passage of the resolution will serve as a request to INDOT to re-name that portion of the highway.
