One year ago today, we were celebrating our first victory with the win of the Republican nomination for State Representative in House District 21! I remember the sunburned and exhausted, but jubilant faces at the victory party that evening! You worked hard, and it was a well deserved triumph.
As I reflect on the events of the past year, please allow me to express my thanks once again. It is humbling to remember how much so many of you sacrificed in the campaign last year, and I will never forget. And I know you will join me thanking God, in Whom we place our ultimate trust!
It has been an absolutely amazing and historic Session for the Indiana General Assembly: the strongest pro-life legislation in the nation; a balanced budget; an automatic taxpayer refund; lower corporate income taxes; school choice; sweeping reform of our Education system; the Marriage Amendment moving forward; immigration reform; common sense redistricting; the unemployment insurance fund back on track. And these are just a few of the highlights!
A Strong Economy. Fiscal Responsibility. Family Values. This is what we campaigned on and thanks be to God we succeeded in upholding these guiding principles in 2011!
I thank you for your part in these victories and I look forward to continuing the fight with you to uphold these ideals!
In God We Trust!
