TRANSCRIPT:

This is Chairman John Zody, bringing you the weekly podcast for the Indiana Democratic Party.

This week, we celebrated the annual Thanksgiving holiday, which gave us the chance to share all we are thankful for with friends, family and other loved ones. 

Inevitably, conversations take place about politics and sometimes there are disagreements around the dinner table about the direction of our state and nation – but that’s all part of a healthy dialogue – right?

As Indiana Democrats, we should never pass up the opportunity, though, to talk about what we stand for as Hoosiers. Too often, it’s easier to talk about what people are against instead of what we are FOR – and we should always remember those things.

Whenever I travel around the state, I talk to other Democrats about five specific things where we can all agree. As the “big tent” party – we don’t always agree on every issue – but there are plenty of areas where we can agree.  Just think about it:

  • Every Hoosier deserves a livable wage
  • Every Hoosier student attending public school deserves for it to be fully-funded – starting with universal Pre-K for our four year-olds.
  • Every Hoosier should have access to affordable healthcare.
  • Every Hoosier should be able to exercise their right to vote freely and without burden – and partisan gerrymandering should be eliminated.
  • And EVERY Hoosier should have the freedom to feel safe, secure and protected equally under the law in Indiana.

As Indiana Democrats, we will never stop fighting for these issues – and many others. But I doubt any Democrat listening to this now disagrees with any of these five things.

Let’s remember that as we continue into the holiday season when we gather with those we care about.

As 2020 approaches, it is critical that we support candidates who support these issues – and who will advocate for public education and other issues at the Statehouse.

Want to help make a difference? Volunteer for a candidate running for office in 2020 – or support someone who is thinking of running.

And please follow the IDP on Facebook and Twitter. Simply search INDEMS – that’s I-N-D-E-M-S on Facebook and Twitter, and follow us to get the latest news about our candidates and what we’re doing to hold our counterparts at the Statehouse and in Washington accountable. 

Thank you for listening.
