INDems Statement on Governor Holcomb’s State of the State Address

INDIANAPOLIS – The Indiana Democratic Party, the organization that advocates for the future of Indiana and its families, today issued the following statement by Chairman Mike Schmuhl after Governor Eric Holcomb’s State of the State Address:

Chairman Mike Schmuhl

“After his seventh State of the State Address, it’s encouraging to see Governor Holcomb admit the truth about the reality of Indiana: Republicans have let Hoosiers down. Our state faces a poor quality-of-life assessment, a worsening brain drain crisis, an inadequate education system, and dismal maternal mortality rates and pollution ratings – and it all falls on Republicans’ shoulders. 

Indiana Democrats are ready to deliver on the everyday issues that Hoosiers care about most: universal pre-K, quality education for every student with teachers being paid more, ending the state’s brain drain, women making their own health care decisions, and ending culture wars for good.

After nearly twenty years of Republican administrations, it’s past time to hold them accountable so we can all live in a better, stronger Indiana. Hoosiers should never have to settle for being at the back of the pack.”
