U.S. Rep. Trey Hollingsworth recently paid a visit to Jackson County to honor local law enforcement, sightsee and discuss reopening.
Hollingsworth, who represents Indiana’s Ninth Congressional District which includes Jackson County, began his visit in Brownstown, where he honored Jackson County Sheriff’s Department officers Billy Dishman and Aaron Wilkins, Brownstown Police Department Officer John Amis and Seymour Police Department Craig Owens for recent acts of service in the community.
Dishman and Amis were honored for a June incident that involved them saving a choking 2-month-old child, Wilkins was honored for his May rescue of a woman and her dog from their burning home and Owens was honored for medical assistance he provided to a boy in June after his leg had been sliced open by a piece of scrap metal while mowing the lawn.

Hollingsworth also visited the Brownstown Pool to discuss its reopening safety measures before heading to Seymour.
In Seymour, Hollingsworth toured the downtown to view recent updates, including Burkhart Plaza and to see how local small businesses were affected by the shutdown. Hollingsworth also visited Schneck Medical Center and the Seymour Police Department.
Hollingsworth is up for reelection in the upcoming Nov. 3 general election. He will be running against Andy Ruff of the Democratic Party, Tonya Millis of the Libertarian Party and independent candidate John Tilford.
