Thank you for your continued trust and support as I work to represent the men, women and children of Indianapolis, IN
on the City-County Council
Since I was first elected to be your representative on the Council in 2007 I have served on several committees to monitor city services and spending including Rules and Public Policy, Economics, Community Affairs and Parks. During my first two years I Chaired the Municipal Corporations Committee and the C.I.B. Task Force to rescue our Convention and Tourism Industry from bankruptcy and the loss of tens of thousands of Indianapolis jobs. Working with Mayor Ballard, the city has passed honestly balanced budgets for the past seven years.
I have supported local government reform including Assessor and Fire Department consolidation and worked hard to help find money to begin rebuilding the crumbling infrastructure of our city with funds pulled from water utility and parking modernization initiatives. All of these items were accomplished while passing a reduction in local property taxes!
After serving in 2009 as the Majority Whip, I was elected Majority Leader in 2010, and, following the 2011 power shift, as Minority Leader in 2012. I continue to serve in that capacity, leading the G.O.P. Caucus.
A Republican Ward Chairman in Lawrence Township, I have served the G.O.P. as a Precinct Committeeman, Election Day worker, Delegate to the State Convention, State G.O.P. Platform Co-Chairman with Lt. Governor Sue Ellspermann and volunteer over the past thirty years. I am also involved with the National Republican Committee and was honored in the past as one of only two “Outstanding Team Leaders” in the state of Indiana. Prior to the Council, I was elected to the Lawrence Township Board and represented my area as President of the Board of Finance.
I need your help! While I will continue to work hard, and do enjoy serving you as your City-County Council Member, I can’t do it without your help and your vote in 2015. I trust that you share my desire to protect our homes and businesses by ensuring that Indianapolis does everything possible to promote job growth and work with our police and fire officials while remaining fiscally responsible with our tax dollars. The citizens of Lawrence Township and Indianapolis as a whole must demand, and do deserve, continued unbiased leadership on the Council.
With your help, I will continue to serve as your representative on every vote, and will continue an Open Door policy on all matters. Feel free to call me at 317.374.1481 with any concerns or questions. Please give me your support and your vote during the 2015 election cycle.
