PARDON OUR DISTRICT’S CONSTRUCTION – WE ARE MAKING PROGRESS!
I am running for re-election to the City-County Council because I love my community and am proud of all we have accomplished together during my first term. From the largest economic development in the history of the Indiana Economic Development Corporation, to record investment for our streets, alleys, sidewalks, and biking and walking trails, I kept my promise to rebuild this district from the ground up.
You see, in 2019 I asked voters to remember two things: First, that I am relentless, and second, that I will get results! I promised that I would work tirelessly for them and their families, and that I would not give up. And I kept my promise, because our district is now fully under construction!
And I didn’t come up with these priorities on my own, rather, they were the culmination of what has been a continuous canvassing of our district. I have talked to thousands of our neighbors at their doors year-round to see exactly what they want their priorities are and I took those back to the council.
I look forward to representing the newly drawn District 18, and getting to know the new constituents, while also serving the current district for the rest of the year. My record speaks for itself and I am looking forward to accomplishing even more.
I have lived in the district for 29 years, and have been married for 33 years, and am the mother of two adult children. Currently, I am the Executive Director of the Indiana Senate Democratic Caucus.
The Way The District Was
I went door to door in 2018 and 2019 and asked voters how they felt things were. Their priorities were very clear – more money was needed for infrastructure, flood control, and economic development. Many neighbors felt that their neighborhoods had been ignored and underserved for years on end. And others asked for equitable solutions for decaying neighborhoods and for better jobs for our community. That was the state of our district.
