Gubernatorial candidate Eric Doden visited Fishers on April 25 for the regular meeting of the Fishers GOP, to talk with local Republicans about his vision for Indiana.
Doden is running for the Republican nomination to replace Eric Holcomb, whose second term ends in 2024. Sen. Mike Braun and Lt. Governor Suzanne Crouch are also running for the Republican nomination in the May 7, 2024, primary.
Doden said his campaign is one of ideas about how to revitalize communities across Indiana, particularly small towns of 30,000 or fewer residents. He told the Fishers GOP gathering that his Main Street Initiative would provide financial incentives of $100 million a year for private businesses to invest in those small communities.
“We cannot be the state with four, five or six counties doing well. We need to be the state where all 92 counties are doing well, but it has to be private-sector led,” he said. “Fishers is doing well because you have phenomenal leadership — both public and private came together, had a vision for your community. We need that all over the state of Indiana.”
