Hoosiers deserve a governor who wants to do something, not one who simply wants to be something. I have a bold vision to protect our most vulnerable and enable families and communities to flourish. Below is an outline of our bold vision and detailed plans to accomplish our goals

Indiana Main Street Initiative

We have a bold plan to provide every community in Indiana the tools it needs to thrive. By reclaiming our historic buildings we can restore community pride, enhance small business formation, and stimulate economic and population growth. We estimate this will lead to $4 billion of projects in 8 years. We will partner with the private sector by providing $100 million annually for smaller communities to revitalize downtowns.

Regional Cities 2.0

The regions across Indiana are in a global competition and, as Governor, I'll ensure our regions have the resources they need to win. Regional Cities 2.0 will dedicate $200 million annually as a match to private and local public funds to generate $16 billion in economic activity to make each of our regions nationally competitive.

Zero Cost Adoption

At the core of everything I will do as Governor is protecting the most vulnerable Hoosiers. We will work tirelessly to find permanent loving homes for the 13,000 children who currently call our foster care system their home. We’ll do this by reducing both the financial and bureaucratic barriers to potential adoptive families.

Transparency in Health Care

Our healthcare system is broken because it lacks transparency and competition. Hospitals will provide full transparency in pricing and their use of taxpayer funding. We will also incentivize nonprofit hospitals to invest a portion of their billions in profits sitting on Wall Street into Indiana Main Streets.

Teacher Investment Program

I am committed to ensure we attract and retain Indiana's best teachers by investing in them. We’ll drive down teaching vacancies and enhance take-home pay by making public school teachers exempt from state income tax and providing an additional state tax credit for those who own a home.
