Indiana Black Legislative Caucus PAC Supports Eddie Melton

Indianapolis, IN. — TheIndiana Black Legislative Caucus PAC issued a statement of support for State Senator Eddie Melton and his gubernatorial exploratory committee. Melton, who on Tuesday announced the formation of the Committee, has focused on listening to Hoosiers as he travels the state discussing teacher pay, raising the minimum wage, and providing access to quality affordable healthcare.

“The Indiana Black Legislative Caucus PAC strongly supports Senator Melton as he launches his gubernatorial exploratory committee,” said Caucus Chair Representative Robin Shackleford (HD-98, Indianapolis). “The Indiana Black Caucus PAC’s mission is to work towards greater economic, educational and social opportunities for all residents of Indiana. Senator Melton is the embodiment of that effort. From his time as a social worker, serving the most vulnerable amongst us, to his legislative accomplishments of incentivizing job creation, and increasing educational funding, his thoughtful approach to bring all parties to the table to progress our shared goals, is a testament to his leadership. Leadership which Indiana sorely needs right now.” 

For over a decade, the Indiana Black Legislative Caucus PAC has provided generational support to the Indiana General Assembly, by advocating for public policies that will address the primary concerns of minority citizens in Indiana. From access to adequate healthcare to closing the achievement gap for minority students, the IBLC PACworks to increase opportunity for all Hoosiers.

State Representative Robin Shackleford represents the citizens of Indiana House District 98 and serves as ranking minority member of the Public Health Committee. She is also on the Financial Institutions, and Government and Regulatory Reform committees. She previously served as Director of Diversity Affairs for the Indianapolis Mayor’s office and as a policy and research specialist for the Indiana Health Care Association.
