Biography

Richard Mourdock was elected as the 53rd State Treasurer in November 2006. He brought to the office a 30 year record as a business executive in the Hoosier energy, construction, and environmental industries.

Mourdock served two terms as a County Commissioner in Vanderburgh County, where he gained a reputation as a results-oriented leader by setting goals and measuring progress.

Mourdock serves as Indiana's Chief Investment Officer, where he seeks to maximize the return on the state's investment portfolio, and serves on at total of 13 boards and commissions in his official position.

Recently, Mourdock was at the center of the national debate on the automobile industry bailout as he pursued a case on behalf of Indiana pensioners all the way to the US Supreme Court. Currently, the case is "on appeal" and the court will likely decide in early 2010 whether or not to take the case. As a result of the Chrysler case, Mourdock has frequently been cited for his willingness to stand up for the rule of law, the US Constitution, and individual property rights.

Richard holds a Master's Degree in Geology from Ball State University and a Bachelor's Degree from Defiance College in Ohio.
