Ryan Hatfield has spent his professional career fighting for the people of Vanderburgh County.
A local attorney and Vanderburgh County Deputy Prosecutor, Hatfield is a lifelong Evansville resident whose work has ignited a passion to fight for the area’s most vulnerable victims. Now, he wants to take that passion to the Indiana Statehouse, where he will fight for the people of Evansville and Vanderburgh County.
“Evansville has many exciting projects on the horizon,” Hatfield said. “We will need a leader in the Indiana General Assembly to see those projects through and usher them home.”
Hatfield is a 2010 graduate of Purdue University, and earned his Juris Doctor at Southern Illinois University in 2012. He returned to Evansville after graduation and immediately immersed himself in the community, becoming a member of numerous boards and organizations across Vanderburgh County. Hatfield’s current volunteer efforts include:
He also has served as a deputy prosecutor for Vanderburgh County’s Treatment Courts, a board member of the Evansville-Vanderburgh Correctional Facility Advisory Board, and a volunteer for the Evansville Youth Hockey League.
Alongside his work in the Vanderburgh County Prosecutor’s Office, Hatfield is an active participant in local legal education, serving as an instructor at the Southwestern Indiana Law Enforcement Academy and an adjunct professor at Ivy Tech Community College.
Now, Hatfield is looking to serve the people of Vanderburgh County in Indianapolis.
“We need a leader in the statehouse focused on bringing good jobs to Evansville that pay a living wage,” Hatfield said. “We need a leader who is ready to fight for expanding resources to fix our crumbling infrastructure; we need a leader in statewide education to better our schools, protect our teachers, and prepare our children for a bright future.
“I will be that leader, and I look forward to working with you for a better Indiana.”
