TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) – The campaign trail continues in Indiana as Election Day approaches.
State Representative Christina Hale stopped in Terre Haute Wednesday evening. Hale is running for Lt. Governor alongside Democratic Governor Candidate John Gregg.
She held a meet and greet with supporters and voters where she talked about Indiana’s future and plans to help local government be successful.
“John Gregg and I have a plan for economic development that includes a $200 million revolving loan fund so that local forms of government can apply for that, whether they need to leverage it to access more federal funds or to customize projects that are specific and important locally,” she said, “We want to ensure that local government has the tools that they need so that they can continue to support their tax base in a way that makes sense to the citizens that live there.”
Hale says having the meet and greet is part of the campaign goal to have conversations with voters and talk about issues that are important to them throughout Indiana.
“I know a lot of people are disheartened by politics these days, but there a lot of critical issues at play,” Hale said, “In particular, the average Hoosier makes $7,000 today less than the average American worker. We have a lot of critical issues before us, growing our economy, improving education and getting away from teaching to the test, improving public infrastructure and better providing for public safety and fighting drug addiction all around the state. Those are our top priorities.”
