GOP leader urges vote for Pence

I would like to ask everyone to vote for Mike Pence for governor. Mike wants to make Indiana the state that works, will promote private-sector job growth, develop world-class schools, protect taxpayers and support families.

Mike is a family man and a man of honor. I have known Mike for a while and have friends that have known him since they attended Hanover College with him.

Mike is qualified to be our next governor and is a lifelong Hoosier. I would ask that you please visit to learn more about Mike. Please consider voting for Mike Pence for governor Nov. 6.

— Jamey Noel, chairman, Clark County Republican Party and Indiana Republican Party 9th Congressional District

Young endorses Matthews for commish

  As the congressman for Indiana’s 9th District, I have the opportunity to work with county government officials all across Southern Indiana. I know that Floyd County — like our district, state and nation — faces some tough decisions in the future. It will require leadership at the county level that understands the issues at hand, that is willing to be bold in looking for solutions, and that can clearly articulate their vision for economic growth and job creation. I believe that Dave Matthews can be that sort of leader for Floyd County, and recommend him as a candidate for Floyd County Commissioner in the Nov. 6 election.

I don’t often weigh in on local elections, but feel strongly that Dave Matthews is the right man for the job. As a graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy myself, I know that Dave was trained to lead when he attended the U.S. Air Force Academy. As I’ve got to know him over the past few years, I’ve been impressed with his passion for Floyd County and his understanding of county issues. I’ve known him to remain cool and confident, even in stressful situations. But most importantly, I know he’s willing to make the choices necessary to build a strong local economy in Floyd County.

I wholeheartedly endorse Dave Matthews’ candidacy for Floyd County Commissioner.

— Todd Young, 9th District congressman
