I have lived in Henry County for the last 9 years. I will be graduating from Indiana Wesleyan University (IWU) in May with a degree in Nursing. At six years old, I accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as my Savior. I was raised in a Christian home that taught me the importance of putting the Lord first, as well as the value of hard work, dedication and walking with integrity. As a family, we own and operate a local Christian Retreat Center and Campground. I am the manager of the grounds and operations where I have taught myself a range of skills from plumbing to electrical to leadership and management. My parents as well as my 6 siblings have been an integral part in supporting my decision to run for the District 54 seat.
I am a Freedom Fighter! I believe that Freedom is one of our most valuable assets as an American citizen. Over the course of these last few years, I have watched as our freedoms have been taken away. I have witnessed governmental overreach as they dealt with a pandemic. I have experienced firsthand the forced closure of my Family business and our local churches. I have been forced to leave a job and have had a halt put on my career, due to mandates. I have stood up against it all by speaking on the House floor to ask them to stop the mandates; I have fought at IWU against forced vaccine mandates and masking; I have volunteered at informational clinics sharing the importance of alternative COVID therapies. I want to continue to stand strong as Indiana’s State House Representative for District 54.
I believe that I have a great foundation to take on the task of representing the people of the 54th district. I will work diligently to stand firm in the beliefs that I have on issues that face us, WE THE PEOPLE of Indiana. I will prayerfully consider each decision as I look into governmental policy, legislative proposals, new bills, and existing legislation. I am young, bold and WILL NOT back down from difficult issues or adversity that I face. Now is the time to give Hoosiers their voices back. I believe that I was created for “Such a time as this.” Vote JOSH4INDIANA this May 3! I appreciate your vote and support.
