In Indiana, we know how to see our state thrive:
Strong Families. Strong Communities.
People Serving People.
The local community, churches, sports leagues, school functions, festivals, and patriotism, are what bring people together. Indiana is full of cities and small towns that know how to do this which is why our state is still strong. We must protect this. Get involved in your local community, church, school, and government, be a Hoosier that makes a difference!
Indiana can be a leader in low taxes and wise spending. Our government should operate on a tight, balanced budget just like Hoosier families. Indiana has long maintained a balanced budget, but taxes and spending are higher than they need to be. WalletHub ranks Indiana 35th among all states in total forms of taxes on the average household! We commit to cutting state spending so that we can return more money to the families who make Indiana great.
We must strive to be a state where women in need have support to raise their families well. We can do this in our communities by organizing our efforts and being aware of the needs of those around us. This is not a government responsibility; this is our responsibility as those who uphold life. Indiana values the sanctity of life. Roe v. Wade has been overturned. I will advocate to cease all abortions in the state. I want to encourage women that they bear the image of God, and that He masterfully created them to bring forth life. I stand ready to help women in all walks of life, equipping them to raise their children in a safe and nurturing environment. The people of Indiana have a unique opportunity to help in this noble endeavor, to love their fellow citizens, and to uphold life.
With Indiana’s school choice program, parents are empowered to make the best educational decisions for their children. Parents whose children were delayed by remote learning, quarantining, contact tracing, or mask mandates need better awareness of the options available to their families. Additionally, parents who choose public education for their children should have every right to review curriculum and transparent access to the topics, lessons, and assignments.
Our education system needs to focus on rigorous academic standards that prepare Indiana kids to be the best and brightest in their professions and secondary educational endeavors. Teachers’ opinions on political and social topics, critical race theory, and sexual orientation and gender identity issues have no place in the classroom. I want our schools to have a renewed focus on America’s rich history of freedom, equal rights, and opportunity for all so that our kids know and believe that they are in the greatest country in the world. We look forward to speaking with teachers and sharing ideas to make an immediate impact for good in the lives of Indiana’s children.
