Jobs and Economy

  • Excerpt: "Jack’s top priority is creating good paying jobs right here in Allen County. That means focusing on policies to help small businesses grow and expand today and remain competitive long into the future. We can’t be content with creating just any job; we must create the quality jobs Hoosiers can raise a family on and that are the building blocks of stronger communities."

Public Education

  • Excerpt: "In Indiana, providing all Hoosier children with a quality education is a fundamental responsibility of government. So much so, that the state’s constitution outlines lawmakers’ duties to provide by law: 'for a general and uniform system of Common Schools, wherein tuition shall without charge, and equally open to all.' Jack will work to restore the promise of a good education, ensuring all Hoosier kids enter classrooms ready to learn, have access to enriching curriculum, become lifelong learners and aren’t taught to tests."[1]
