Indiana State Sen. Phil Boots spoke to the Crawfordsville Rotary Club at their weekly meeting. A Senator's term is four years. Boots is retiring after serving 16 years. He told members there is quite an extensive orientation period that each new officeholder must complete. One of the committees he served on was the Petition and Labor Committee. He brought a "red.boot" to the meeting. When asked why he brought it he answered, "I was nicknamed 'Senator Red Boots' because I voted red so many times." Red is no and green is yes. The Rotarians thanked Boots for the time he served in the Indiana Senate..
