Gov. Pence Names Director of State Based Initiatives

30 Jul

Indianapolis – Governor Mike Pence today named David Johnson as Executive Director of the Office of State-Based Initiatives.

David Johnson, of Carmel, currently serves as a Staff Attorney at the Indiana Gaming Commission. There, he serves as the agency’s ethics officer, crafts agency contracts and rules, and ensures regulatory compliance of occupational and casino license holders in Indiana. Previously, he worked as Assistant Counsel for the Indiana State Senate Majority Caucus, and as a corporate in-house attorney. Johnson earned his undergraduate degree from Wabash College and his law degree from Indiana University McKinney School of Law in Indianapolis.

“David Johnson is a principled leader with the skills necessary to drive Indiana’s efforts to reduce federally-created, burdensome mandates and regulations on Hoosiers, their businesses and both state and local governments,” said Governor Pence. “I look forward to working closely with him in the years ahead as we work to promote Hoosier solutions to federal problems here in Indiana.”

Earlier today, Pence signed Executive Order 13-20, which transforms the existing Office of Federal Grants and Procurement into the Office of State-Based Initiatives. More information on this agency’s role can be found here:
