OFFICE SOUGHT

US Congress

EXPERIENCE

Incumbent, Indiana's First Congressional District Congressman

WHAT ARE YOUR TOP THREE GOALS?

I support the continued draw down of our forces in Afghanistan. I will work to ensure our military personnel are as safe as possible on the battlefield and that they have the economic opportunities and services they have earned when they return home.

Jobs cannot wait. I will I work to strengthen our local steel industry and manufacturing base. I support investments in industrial technologies in partnership with local institutions of higher learning to benefit our local companies and labor force.

We must invest in transformational projects that build upon the many assets we possess. Opening up the lakeshore for public use and extending the South Shore Rail Line will improve the economy of Northwest Indiana for the benefit of generations to come.

QUESTION 1: WHAT PROMPTED YOUR DECISION TO RUN?

I chose public service as my vocation in life. I want to leave Northwest Indiana better than I found it, just as my parents did for me.

QUESTION 2: WHY SHOULD VOTERS CHOOSE YOU?

I have done my best to serve the people of our region. I have a record of working with local, state, and federal officials ? of both parties ? for the improvement of Northwest Indiana with the goal of nurturing an environment to create good paying jobs.

QUESTION 3: WHAT WOULD YOU DO ON YOUR FIRST DAY IN OFFICE?

I will continue to press forward on the initiatives in place and solicit others to improve our economy. In Washington, I will continue working to find consensus for pro-growth economic policies and investment in our nation?s infrastructure.

QUESTION 4: ANY ADDITIONAL INFORMATION?

Prior generations built steel mills, oil refineries, rail lines, interstates, a port and harbors, and established a National Park. It is time to invest in our lakefront and extend the South Shore Rail Line for the benefit of future generations.
