Best place to take a client – Conrad Hotel or Columbia Club.
Favorite building – Indiana Statehouse. There is so much history there—it’s an amazing place to visit and I learn something new every time.
Best restaurant – I like Seasons 52, but I also try to support locally owned restaurants, such as Late Harvest Kitchen and Café Patachou and Napolese. I love to take the kids to Trader’s Point Creamery in the summer so they can pet the cows.
Favorite historical fact about Indianapolis – It’s the crossroads of America. It’s nice to have that designation and know that we can have access to so much.
Favorite historical site – I love to take a carriage ride tour through downtown Indianapolis, which can take you through the War Memorial Museum, Indiana Statehouse, canal and so many other amazing sites.
Favorite historical resident – David Letterman. Where would we be without David Letterman? So proud to have him as a native Hoosier.
Favorite city event – I can’t choose one, but I love the Indianapolis Symphony, our local fundraisers, paddle boating and kayaking on the canal, and Handlebar is fun, too.
Favorite quote about Indianapolis – “It truly has been an honor to play in Indianapolis. I do love it here. I love the fans, and I will always enjoy having played for such a great team.” —Peyton Manning
Favorite courthouse perk – I love seeing the clerks and friendly court staff. Court staff are underappreciated, but we really need them to operate.
Besides the people, favorite thing about your office – I love that it’s my own office and we can do what we want. We work hard but we always have fun. We are family-friendly and bring our children here, including my own daughter when we need to. We have toys and play areas for children.
Favorite park – Indiana Central Canal if I’m downtown, or Eagle Creek if I am on the north side.
Best place for people watching – Indianapolis Children’s Museum. It’s great to see the kids light up and interact.
Favorite local shop – As a business owner myself, I try to support local business owners. I love the City Market.
Favorite pizza joint – Bazbeaux Pizza.
Favorite city sports moment – Super Bowl XLVI. There will never be such an amazing Super Bowl in our lifetime. I was so proud of our hardworking community.
