— State officials support Lake
Voters in Howard County will have the opportunity to vote for experience, knowledge and dedication when they cast their vote for Martha Lake for county auditor. I have known and worked with Martha Lake as she has served both as county auditor and treasurer.
I know Martha Lake as a dedicated public servant, who is always striving to increase her knowledge to better serve Howard County and maintain Howard County’s financial stability.
Martha Lake was an integral force in providing property tax relief for Howard County homeowners as evidenced in your current tax bill. There is no greater honor than to be recognized by your peers, this past year Martha Lake was recognized as Indiana’s most outstanding county treasurer — evidence that Martha Lake works hard every day for a stronger Howard County!
I wholeheartedly encourage Howard County Republicans to vote Martha Lake for County Auditor on May 8.
Indiana state auditor
Lugar is distant from Indiana
Richard Lugar’s outrageous ad depicting individuals accusing Hoosiers of potentially selling out his U.S. Senate seat is unconscionable; not to mention fictitious. Frankly, how can any one individual sell anything that doesn’t actually exist? Richard Lugar had been absent from Indiana since 1977; physically, as well as, in spirit. He cares no more for Hoosiers than a man on the moon.
I watched the debate on April 11, 2012, and after Richard Lugar’s poor performance, it’s to no surprise he had to implement liberal tactics in order to manipulate Hoosiers who he apparently deems to be unaware or just unmindful of the truth. Please, allow the facts to make the case on who the real Hoosier is, and why.
Richard Mourdock had fought for the retirement benefits for teachers, police, firefighters, and a whole host of other disgruntled workers in Indiana when the Obama administration chose to sell Chrysler retirement pension plans for pennies on the dollar. Keep in mind, this is not a typical issue that a state treasurer would undertake, but Richard Mourdock did, and against all political probabilities. Hence, where was Richard Lugar or any other D.C. politician on this momentous issue?
Another point which needs to be addressed is the subject of taxes. It’s ironic that Richard Lugar would air an ad depicting Richard Mourdock as some kind of tax cheat when in fact, it was Richard Lugar who inappropriately misused Hoosier tax dollars to fund his lavish lifestyle while visiting (infrequently) Indiana. Richard Lugar has demonstrated that he lacks the moral fortitude to continue to represent the great state of Indiana as their U.S. Senator.
In principle, Richard Lugar is the embodiment for everything that is unsound in Washington, D.C.
Hoosiers, do not rest and gaze from afar, while Richard Lugar continues to clog the wheels of government.
We need the right kind of change
Everyone says change is needed in education, in health care and in the economy. Here is an idea for change: send someone to the state Legislature who actually knows about these issues and many others. Send a servant leader; send an intelligent advocate for everyday people and our everyday needs.
Steve Wilson has served the community for over 20 years as a teacher, he has worked diligently on many health/insurance trust committees to ensure fair and competitive prices are available, and he has worked to provide high-quality investment opportunities for school employees.
In addition, he understands international business, entrepreneurship and the need for negotiation and compromise with dignity and respect. If you are tired of the same type of politicians producing the same results, change.
Change your vote to Steve Wilson for state representative.
Does Lugar really represent Indiana?
Lugar considers himself a representative of Indiana. Why has he lived in Virginia for 36 years? Is it just a coincidence that Eric Cantor (also from Virginia) is throwing his support behind Lugar.
Cantor is also a big contributor to CNN. Has CNN been known for its conservative values? Why would a “conservative” like Lugar be begging for Democrats to vote for him? Because he actually leans to the left. Lugar’s people are whining because Mourdock is getting lots of out-of-Indiana money. Well, we grassroots people, many who are unemployed, can’t just come up with $2,500 to support any political campaign.
Our feet and voices are there though. Lugar is also getting plenty of out-of-state money, plus he had millions left over from previous elections where he had no creditable opponent or the Dems didn’t want to waste money challenging him when they already held his vote when needed.
And the worst part of it, is that after 36 years in the position, Lugar still can’t run on his past performance and has to stoop to lies and misrepresentations in every one of his ads. He can’t run on his record, because it is all smoke and mirrors.
