Hello and welcome to the official website of my campaign for re-election in District 16, which covers about half of Allen County and the far eastern portion of Whitley County.

Before I became the Senate President, Indiana was saddled with significant debt, low national ratings for job creation and tax climate, and most importantly, no vision for where the state needed to go.

Working in partnership with Republican Governors Mitch Daniels and Mike Pence, we turned things completely around and made government work again for Indiana’s families.

Today, Indiana is hailed for its tremendous economic renaissance. Our state has achieved one of the lowest unemployment rates in the nation with our region leading the pack. Since the end of the recession, Indiana has created more good paying jobs than nearly any other state in the country. Property taxes and state income taxes are among the lowest in the entire nation. Our budgets are balanced. Our state lives within its means and we make sure that state government lives by the golden rule that it’s your money, and we can’t afford to waste any of it.

We’ve invested in transportation at a record pace, and the Major Moves deal allowed Indiana to raise nearly $4 billion dollars for its roads WITHOUT RAISING ONE PENNY OF TAXES. No state in the nation can say that except Indiana. Our past two budgets have invested an additional $1.3 billion into our roads and bridges, while also providing $100 million per year for our local government’s road needs, including Allen and Whitley Counties.

We’re also investing in our children, making sure our kids are getting the best education possible, empowering our parents with more choices, and investing in our youngest children through our state’s first pre-K programming.

I’m proud to have been a significant part of these accomplishments, but there is more to do. That is why I’m running for the Indiana State Senate again, to make sure we stay focused on what matters. Indiana is a special place, and I promise to do everything in my power to keep it that way.

He’s empowered parents with more choices in their children’s education, supported efforts to withdraw from the Common Core education standards and has led the fight to provide additional accountability and funding for our schools.
