State Representative District 31
State Representative Kevin Mahan was born and raised in Blackford County, where he started working after high school at his uncle’s family-owned business, Rex A. Shadle and Associates Auctioneers and Realtors. There he received his Auctioneer and Real Estate Sales license and Real Estate Broker’s license.
Rep. Mahan was also serving his community long before being appointed to serve in the Indiana General Assembly as State Representative of House District 31. He served as a patrolman for the Hartford City Police Department, and then was appointed Blackford County Chief Deputy. After serving eight years as Chief Deputy, he was elected as the Blackford County Sheriff, which he served for three years.
During his service, he was called upon by Gov. Mitch Daniels to build a new police and regulatory agency for the Indiana Gaming Commission when Senate Enrolled Act 626 was passed in 2005. He built the agency from the ground up—from writing job descriptions to designing Indiana’s first Gaming Agent Academy. He also instituted a D.A.R.E. program and TRIAD, a networking organization between law enforcement and senior citizens to improve the quality of life in the community.
Rep. Mahan has been married to his high school sweetheart, Tonia, and they have three children: Andrew, Chase and Keaton.
