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.
