A seat at the table
February 26, 2018
Ronald Reagan once said, "all great change begins at the dinner table." This is why throughout Indiana's Ninth District, from Mooresville to Corydon, from Paoli to Charlestown, I'm sitting down with as many Hoosiers as possible to have a face-to-face conversation to discuss your thoughts, concerns, ideas, and answer your questions. Check out a few highlights from last week:
Addressing agriculture concerns. In Corydon, I sat down with soybean, corn, and livestock farmers from Washington, Harrison, and Clark counties to discuss issues like the upcoming Farm Bill, rural infrastructure, and U.S. trade agreements. I appreciated hearing their thoughts and I look forward to bringing their ideas back to Congress.
Answering questions on policy. At Center Grove High School in Greenwood, the Keeping our Public Politically Informed club asked me questions on a variety of policy issues, ranging from trade to immigration reform.
Discussing CTE. At the Central 9 Career Center in Greenwood, I took questions from Hoosiers on how Congress can support Career and Technical Education programs that help Hoosiers develop the skills needed for high-wage jobs in fields like agriculture, manufacturing, public safety, business, and information technology.
Builders' Roundtable. As job creation and a strong Hoosier economy continue to be priorities of mine in Congress, I sat down with local builders to discuss challenges facing the homebuilding industry, including shortages of labor.
Everyone deserves a seat at the table. It's my mission everyday to ensure your voice is heard.
