PRESERVE OUR WAY OF LIFE

We will do this through rural economic development.

To preserve our way of life and make it attractive so that when kids graduate high school, trade school or college, they want to stay in our precious cities and towns. The state of Indiana and USDA Rural Development have so many ways to help us, and through a robust constituent service network, I’ll work with local elected officials, agricultural leaders, and other community groups to ensure that southern Indiana thrives.

 

CURB SUBSTANCE ABUSE

We have all been touched by the effects of substance abuse in one way or another.

I personally experienced that pain through my son, and I am impassioned to support the people and organizations who are working tirelessly day and night to treat victims of substance abuse, and who celebrate recovery.  

 

IMPROVE PUBLIC HEALTH

The well-being of our communities hinges upon a collective commitment to enhancing public health

I will advocate for our public health professionals who engage with families to prevent maternal and infant mortality.   And I will strongly support those mental health care professionals who are working in this district to help children, teens, and adults alike.
