• Create collaborations with businesses, high schools, and colleges

  • Develop a qualified workforce trained for 21st-century opportunities

  • Improve agricultural import/export trade agreements to support farmers

We will invest in 21st-century education by facilitating greater collaboration between our businesses and schools to establish pertinent educational goals that aid both our students and area businesses. We must engage our local unions in developing our regional workforce. I will encourage fair import/export trade agreements in support of the 2nd District and the nation. Agriculture is one of Indiana’s most important and valuable economic sectors. We will partner with farmers on green energy and sustainability initiatives to create new income streams to support their families and livelihoods. A strong economy is critical to our prosperity.
