Kubacki bested incumbent representative William Ruppel in a May 4, 2010 primary. Kubacki was the only political newcomer to knock off an incumbent in the May 4 primary. Ruppel was seeking his tenth term.
Kubacki says that her district has been devastated by unemployment and that she will focus on job creation, legislation that is job friendly and on encouraging businesses to relocate to Indiana.
Prior to entering politics for the first time in 2010, Kubacki was a stay-at-home mother and community volunteer. She is the daughter of migrant farm workers who moved to Indiana in the 1960s to pick tomatoes. She says, "To be running for the State House of Representatives in the area where I had such humble beginnings makes me proud to know that the American Dream is still alive."
The Indiana Chamber of Commerce’s political action committee gave over $40,000 to Kubacki's campaign, allowing her to purchase last-minute TV commercials.
At the beginning of the 2013 legislative session, Kubacki served on the following committees:
|Indiana Committee Assignments, 2013|
|• Courts and Criminal Code|
|• Employment, Labor and Pensions|
