Statement on Governor-Elect Holcomb’s Remarks


INDIANAPOLIS – John Zody, Chairman of the Indiana Democratic Party, released the following statement after Governor-elect Eric Holcomb’s remarks at a conference this morning in Indianapolis.

“I had hoped to hear a greater sense of urgency from Governor-elect Holcomb this morning about addressing the many challenges facing Indiana right now. The November 8 election is behind us, but our problems are not. The governor-elect talked about Indiana’s economy and unemployment rate, but there was very little mentioned about a vision for how we grow wages in our state so Hoosiers can get ahead. While Pre-K was mentioned, there was no long-term vision presented that would expanded it to all Hoosiers – something that is critical for our state’s long-term success. And while a plan for infrastructure was touched on, questions still remain about what the plan looks like.  As the legislative session approaches, I hope Governor-elect Holcomb and Statehouse Republicans will realize the urgency of our state’s challenges, or Indiana will continue to fall behind the rest of the nation.”


Let’s elect more Hoosier Democrats
We can't sit this one out.
