House District 12 needs a pro-jobs representative

2012-07-30T00:00:00Z House District 12 needs a pro-jobs representative nwitimes.com

Hoosiers want good jobs, so improving employment opportunities is important. The ratings published by the Indiana Chamber of Commerce show that each party has legislators who care about jobs. Local Democrat Frank Mrvan received an 81 percent pro-jobs rating while Earline Rogers earned a 72 percent rating. Likewise, Republicans Ed Soliday and Sue Landske were rated at 93 percent and 86 percent respectively. Clearly, creating jobs is not a partisan issue.

But three-term legislator Mara Candelaria Reardon, HD-12, received a 44 percent rating and tied for 142nd place among the 150 legislators. Her campaign website ignores job creation, and her anti-jobs record speaks for itself. Doesn’t she care about Hoosier workers?

I understand that good jobs begin with small businesses, and that is why I am endorsed by the Indiana PAC of the National Federation of Independent Business. District 12 needs a pro-jobs representative, and I need your vote.
