The Indiana General Assembly wrapped the 2023 legislative session in late April and by all accounts things went well including the passage of bills addressing education, health care and taxes. Constitutionally, as lieutenant governor, Suzanne Crouch serves as the President of the Indiana Senate and chairs four agencies including the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority as well as the Indiana Destination and Development Corporation. Lieutenant Governor Suzanne Crouch recently joined Lakeshore Public Media host Dee Dotson while she was on the road touring the state touting how the more than 100 bills passed that will move the state forward is now.

As co-host and producer of Regionally Speaking, Dee is responsible for connecting with northwest Indiana community newsmakers to share their stories with the Lakeshore Public Radio listening audience. She believes in the power of storytelling to engag, teach and change lives. Prior to working at Lakeshore Public Radio, Dee enjoyed giving her time, talent, and resources to various community organizations. Dee believes in servant leadership. Her favorite quote is "Leadership is service not position." by Tim Fargo.
