Democrats believe it’s imperative for voters to hear from all major political parties, and this fact is why representatives of the Indiana Republican Party and the Indiana Libertarian Party were invited to participate in town hall events across the state. Unfortunately, Indiana Republicans declined the opportunity for partisan reasons.
There is no set theme for the town halls. Indiana Democrats have a plan to address the kitchen-table issues important to voters, and from issues like inflation and law enforcement funding to education and broadband, candidates and elected officials will answer as many questions as possible during a 90-minute conversation.
“In order to truly represent Hoosiers and restore balance to every level of government in Indiana, it’s imperative for voters from all walks of life to hear from the leaders of our political parties about the important issues of the day – and also ask questions directly to the people who seek to serve us. It’s my hope that through this town hall series, some decency and understanding can be restored in our political conversations – even when we disagree,” said Mike Schmuhl, Chairman of the Indiana Democratic Party. “This is the seventh time the Indiana Democratic Party has embarked on a statewide tour, and with leaders like Tom McDermott and Destiny Wells headlining this effort, Democrats are eager to share our plans on how we will create a better future for Hoosier families in all 92 counties.”
This is the seventh statewide tour of the Indiana Democratic Party since Mike Schmuhl began his tenure as Chairman. Future and past leaders in the State Party have held about 100 events in more than 60 counties to share how President Joe Biden and leaders like Secretary Pete Buttigieg have delivered for the Hoosier State. From creating jobs, expanding broadband, funding Indiana’s public schools, and revitalizing the state’s many infrastructure systems, Democrats are working to solve the kitchen-table issues important to voters. Democrats have a plan to create a better tomorrow for our families – even if Indiana Republicans only govern with partisanship.
