FORMER CITY COUNCIL CANDIDATE STEVE DAVIS ENDORSES LORI SHERMAN FOR STATE REPRESENTIVE

As a Democrat, I am encouraged by the caliber of young candidates that the Vanderburgh County Democratic Party is attracting. The divisiveness of the Republican controlled State House has not gone unnoticed by hard working residents and it’s time for Indiana citizens to make a change from top to bottom at the state level.

It is a shame that three of our best and brightest young guns are running in Tuesday’s Primary Election for the same seat, Indiana House District 77. Ryan Hatfield has Democratic political blood running in his veins, and has an impressive resume. Brandon Lee Ferguson, a great example to other young leaders, is working his way up the ladder in his chosen field, and sincere in his wish to do right by his peers.

That being said, we have to make a choice. I have come to the conclusion that Lori Sherman is the strongest in a field of these strong candidates. After speaking with her and listening to her goals it is apparent she has the greatest vision for the citizens of District 77. She will bring the same intelligence, fortitude and problem solving to Indiana that she has already used when she overcame obstacles that has defeated many young people. She has lead by example starting in her early childhood. Hard work and intelligence allowed her to come from being an emancipated sixteen year old to an honors graduate from both high school and college. She won a number of scholarship offers to law schools, but chose to return to Indiana’s Maurer School of Law in Bloomington. After graduating law school and passing the bar exam, she turned down several offers in bigger cities to come home to Evansville and give back to the community that she loves.

She started by advocating for children as an attorney for the Department of Child Services. She bought a house in the center of the city and transformed it into a charming bungalow that she proudly calls her home. I can’t imagine a better person to represent District 77.  Lori has proven herself time and time again and has led by example with her actions and accomplishments and now offers those skills and commitment to the residents of Indiana.

  1. I agree 100%, Steve. We have three promising young Democrats seeking the same slot on the ticket. My first impression was to support Ryan Hatfield because of his work on Gail’s campaign, but when Missy and Weaver lined up behind him, I knew I was in the wrong place, so I looked at Brandon Lee Ferguson and was impressed with what I saw. Then I met Lori and learned what a one-in-a-million young woman she is and will work hard to help her be elected. Ryan and Brandon are young leaders to watch, but Lori stands head-and-shoulders above them.

  2. This is one time I wish voters could vote for those in multiple districts in their immediate area. My district does not offer a good choice at all and I have not voted for the only choice in the past in my district because I was not a fan of this person. I find Lori Sherman to be a very upstanding and straight shooting person who I would be honored to have represent me. Good Luck Lori!!
