Brownstown Central Middle School. I kicked off a busy week with the bright and impressive students at Brownstown Central Middle School. Thank you for the thoughtful questions and conversation on what I’m working on as your representative. It’s always encouraging to see our next generation of Hoosier leaders engaged in current events affecting our community.
Second Chances. The Centerstone program at the Jackson County Sheriff’s Department is all about second chances. I spent time with the men participating in this program, which offers tools and training to help them get clean, find work, reconnect with loved ones, and live a fulfilling life after they have served their time.
Goecker Construction. Tom Goecker is a third-generation business owner of Goecker Construction, which opened over 50 years ago in Seymour. We had a great conversation on what Congress can do to ensure our country’s regulations are encouraging economic growth. As a member of the House Financial Services Committee, I look forward to sharing Tom’s thoughts with my colleagues.
Dickson’s. Dickson’s is a Seymour manufacturer and supplier of products for the Christian gift market. I toured the facility with Steve Vandivier, President of Dickson’s, and his hardworking employees. Steve shared his perspective as a small business owner on tariffs, the cost of healthcare, and taxes, and what I can do in Congress to fight increasing costs to our small community employers.
