In addition to County offices, I also got to speak to candidates running for state office this morning at the Crusade for Children pancake breakfast hosted by Charlestown Fire Department. Mike Bowling is running for Indiana State Representative for District 66, and he shared a little of his platform with me in between pancake bites.
Mike hopes to represent district 66, which includes northern Clark County, all of Scott County, and parts of Jefferson County. His primary goal is to assist Governor Eric Holcomb with his 2018 Next Level Agenda. You can read more about that plan HERE. Mike has a passion for helping Indiana’s secondary schools to prepare students for success after graduation. We talked about how some students will decide to go to college and others want to enter the workforce right away. Mike hopes to help develop programs that will assist in creating work-ready graduates. He recognizes the importance of highly skilled laborers to our economy and hopes to work with technical schools such as Prosser Career Education Center and Ivy Tech Community College to meet Indiana’s needs in these areas.
